Recycle Holiday String Lights and Extension Cords
Mount Prospect residents can recycle unused and non-working Holiday string lights and extension cords free of charge at the Public Works Department. Did you purchase a new set of Holiday lights this year, and don’t know what to do with your old lights? Do you have a set of Holiday lights or extension cord that you can’t get to work? Don’t throw them in the garbage. The materials in the recycled string lights and extension cords will be reclaimed and reprocessed into new products. Most importantly, they will be kept out of the landfill.
Residents can drop off their unwanted holiday string lights and extension cords at the Public Works Department located at 1700 West Central Road between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday - Friday. Call 847. 870.5640 for more information.
