Solid Waste District Wants Dubois County Residents to Recycle Old Christmas Lights This Year

From the Dubois County Solid Waste District 

DUBOIS COUNTY -- 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 14th. 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 first time, and hope everyone recycles 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 duboiscoswmd@psci.net for more information. The Jasper Rural King is located at 1920 Lube Way.
