Holiday Lights Recycling in the Kansas City Region
Southeast and its community partners are excited to build on the success of last year’s drive and hope to collect and recycle over 60,000 pounds of holiday lights between 11/14/14 and 1/20/15 (Walmart locations will be accepting lights until 12/31/14). In addition to keeping holiday lights out of the landfill, we have the benefit of providing challenging work for over 170 employees with developmental disabilities. Look for our collection containers inside over 165 participating schools, businesses, recycling centers, and community organizations.

Here is how the drive works:
From November 14th, 2014 through January 20th, 2015 a collection container will be delivered to retail stores, businesses and other collection sites.
- Southeast will pick up full containers and exchange them for empty ones weekly.
- There is no fee or expense to participate in the program.
- 100% of holiday lights we collect will be recycled.
