Do you have broken, burned-out or impossibly tangled sets of holiday lights stored away with last year’s holiday decorations? Don’t throw them out – recycle them for FREE instead! Thanks to the city of Denver’s recycling program, locals can recycle holiday lights from December 5 through January 7, 2023 at two different locations.
Light strings and wires for incandescent, LED, and “icicle” lights.
Attached bulbs okay.
What’s Not Accepted:
Bubble (liquid-filled) or neon lights.
Note: Please remove light strings from packaging material.
