Have your holiday lights lost their twinkle?  Instead of sending them to the landfill, drop your dead lights off in one of our outdoor containers at Courts Plus (186 S. West Avenue), The Elmhurst Park District Administrative Office (375 W First St.), Wagner Community Center (615 N. West Ave.), The Abbey (407 W Saint Charles Rd), or City Hall (209 N. York St.) through Monday, January 25, 2021 (look for the bins with the “Holiday Lights” signage.)  The City of Elmhurst and Elmhurst Park District are partnering with Elgin Recycling for their annual holiday lights recycling program, with a goal of recycling over 100,000 pounds of holiday lights.  Items that will be accepted include Italian mini-lights, traditional lights, extension cords, rope lights, and LED lights in both working and non-working condition.  Call Mickey Boyle at (630) 993-8941 or email MBoyle@epd.org with any questions.
