Christmas Light Recycling Deadline Nears

Photo by Dzenina Lukac:

It’s that time. Christmas celebrations are over. Carnival season has commenced. When you take the tree down, you may have old lights that are no longer in use. Don’t throw them in the trash. It can be recycled.

The Lafayette Consolidated Government (LCG) Environmental Quality Division and EMR Southern Recycling will accept them. It shouldn’t be tossed into recycling bins. The methods are a little different for light bulbs.

Residents can drop them off at the Robicheaux Recreation Center parking lot at 1919 Eraste Landry Road, now through Friday, January 13th.
