Recycling & Waste

Holiday Lights


String lights and non-fluorescent holiday lights may be placed in the trash.


Do not put holiday lights in your curbside recycling bin. Instead:

  • Bring holiday lights (including power cords) to the household hazardous waste collection sites for free. Battery packs, electronics or appliances cannot be attached.
  • Some cities, such as the City of Saint Paul, sponsor holiday light collections. Check with your city for more information.
  • You can also bring holiday lights to the recycle company listed below.
  • Consider donating holiday lights in good, working condition to Goodwill Easter Seals.
