Crystal Lake Park District Offers Free Holiday Light Recycling through Jan 15

Tue January 2, 2024

As you start decorating for the holidays, you might find not all of your lights work. Don't throw them out; recycle them!

Now through January 15, the Crystal Lake Park District will offer free holiday light recycling. Just head to the Parks Services Garage, 305 Lakeshore Dr, Crystal Lake and drop into the bin near the dumpsters.

This is only for holiday lights; no garlands, wreaths, or live greens, and no household light bulbs. For questions or more information, contact Preston Skultety, Manager of Natural Resources at
