Instead of tossing strings of holiday lights in the garbage, they can be recycled at a retailer or community site participating in the Recycling Association of Minnesota’s Recycle Your Holidays Program  String lights are also accepted at Hennepin County drop-off facilities.  The copper wiring inside the string lights as well as the plastic coating can be recycled. When buying new string lights, looks for LEDs, which are about 80 percent more energy efficient than incandescent lights. Learn more in the Star TribuneScreen Shot 2015-12-11 at 5.53.22 AM
