Do you have strings of holiday lights that don’t work, are hopelessly tangled, or are no longer wanted? Don’t throw them out where they’ll sit for years in a landfill—recycle them! Beginning Nov. 1, St. Charles residents and businesses can drop off lights (working or non-working) and electrical cords at convenient locations around town. Elgin Recycling will haul them away at no cost. A ton of lights were collected last year—literally.
