Holiday light recycle drive going on now

Keep Beatrice Beautiful and Sanitary Recycling Center are partnering this year in a "go green" holiday lights recycle drive. You can drop off non-working lights or lights that still work that you just don’t want anymore. You don’t have to remove the bulbs, they can be left in place. Please do remove any packing material, like plastic bags or cardboard before recycling. The different component materials will be separated and reused in new items.

Light strings will be collected at Sanitary Recycling Center, located at 917 S. 11th St. in Beatrice and will later be brought to Scrap Central, Inc. in Omaha. The old or unused strings of lights are being accepted now through Jan. 6, 2018. The hours of the recycling center are 12-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In 2016, 350 pounds of old, unused lights were collected. The goal for this year is to collect and recycle 500 lbs.

The drive is a win-win for everyone. You will have a good feeling of having your old lights being diverted from the landfill and being recycled and reused as new products. Keep Beatrice Beautiful will receive $.20 per pound for the recycled lights, and proceeds generated will be used for to purchase a recycled content park bench for the preschool.

If you have any questions, please contact Keep Beatrice Beautiful at 402-228-4576 or email kbb@beatrice.ne.gov.
