Coming across a bunch of old and broken Christmas lights as you do your holiday decorating this year? Unfortunately, string lights cannot be put in your normal recycling bin (they can get tangled up in the recycling sorting equipment). But that doesn’t mean you have to toss ’em in the trash! Here is some recycling info from Austin EcoNetwork. Texas Disposal Systems is partnering with the City of Georgetown to set up three special recycling drop-off stations and the City of Austin’s Recycle and Reuse Drop-Off Center is accepting string lights.
