Recycle decorative string lights this holiday season

While decorating for the holiday season, you may encounter a few strings of lights that mysteriously decided to quit working, or the dreaded wad of lights that is impossible to untangle. Don’t throw those strings of lights away – recycle them properly!

The Adams-Clermont Solid Waste District and Cohen have teamed up again this year to provide convenient opportunities to recycle those unwanted or non-working decorative string lights. From December 1st to February 1st residents can recycle their traditional or LED-style string lights by dropping them into a specially marked outdoor container at the following locations:

Shor Park: 4659 Tealtown Road Milford, OH 45150
   container is by the public restrooms
Sycamore Park: 4082 State Route 132, Batavia OH 45103
   container is by the public restrooms
Clermont County Soil & Water Conservation District: 1000 Locust St. Owensville, OH 45160
   container is in front of agricultural service center at the fairgrounds, near gazebo
Pierce Township Service Department: 950 Locust Corner Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45245
   container is next to the public recycling dumpsters
Clermont County Water Resources: 4400 Haskell Lane Batavia, OH 45103
Cincinnati Nature Center (CNC members only): 4949 Tealtown Road, Milford, OH 45150
   Container is at the Rowe Woods Visitor Center
Long Branch Farm & Trails (CNC members only): 6926 Gaynor Road, Goshen, OH 45122
It is important to remember that holiday lights cannot be placed in your curbside recycling bin or in the public recycling drop-off container you typically use because they will tangle around the machinery and automated equipment at the recycling processing center. Holiday lights require special handling and processing that Cohen is happy to provide! Please note this is for traditional or LED string lights only – fluorescent bulbs or large halogen bulbs cannot be accepted.
