The Village of Lombard encourages residents and businesses to recycle their holiday lights and extension cords.
A collection bin is in place now through January 16, 2017 at the Department of Public Works at 1051 S. Hammerschmidt Avenue, just south of the Village Hall. Residents and businesses may drop off at any time, including after work hours and on weekends. According to the energystar.gov, LED lights strands use 65% less electricity, can last 10 times longer, and lower the risk of fire since they are cooler than incandescent lights strands. Elgin Recycling will pay the Village for the copper content and the proceeds will be used to offset a portion of the Village’s costs for its Recycling Extravaganza. Last year, one thousand pounds of lights were collected in Lombard. Contact the Department of Public Works at (630) 620-5740 or visit www.villageoflombard.org for more information.
