ProAct is in its sixth season collecting holiday lights, electric cords, telephone cords and appliance cords at 26 locations for recycling.

“Keep your lights and cords out of the trash and recycle bins. Let us handle them properly to reclaim the valuable material for reuse in new products,” said Skills Training Program Manager, Jennifer Cavalier.

Please note that we do not accept cord adapters, battery packs, plastic rope lights, CFL lights, light fixtures (deer, sleighs, etc.), trees and garland. Anything that is pre-lit needs the light strands removed from the item and the item disposed of separately by the consumer.

Bring your lights to one of our convenient drop-off locations:
