Dubois County Officials Remind You to Recycle Old Christmas Lights Again This Year


COUNTYWIDE -- The Dubois County Solid Waste District reminds residents that they can recycle strands of old lights at the Solid Waste District Process Center and at the Jasper Rural King store during regular hours through January 15th. Cardboard barrels are provided at the entry to the store and inside the SWMD Process Center.

“Do the right thing and recycle them!,” says Solid Waste District Director, Carla Striegel-Winner. “We are excited to offer this seasonal recycling program for the third year, and hope everyone continues to recycle their old holiday lights!”

The program accepts strands of electric lights only, not rigid frames such as yard shapes. Recycling the strands with lights on them is fine, but boxes and bags of individual lights are not accepted.

This recycling program is in cooperation with Jasper Salvage, Jasper Rural King and the Dubois County Solid Waste District. The District Process Center is located at 1103 S. 350 W., Jasper. Regular hours are 8 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday. Residents may call 812-482-7865 or email [email protected] for more information. The Jasper Rural King is located at 1920 Lube Way.
