Almost 600 lbs. of Christmas Lights recycled!

The Jackson Co. Energy District partnered with the Clayton and Delaware County Energy Districts in Holiday Light recycling! Several drop off locations were available in each county for convenience of the community. The intent of this collection was for the Energy Districts to collect the energy sucking (non-LED) holiday string lights and have them properly recycled.

The community is encouraged to switch to LED. What are the benefits? They will save money and energy, burn at lower temperatures (cool to the touch), last MUCH longer (rated up to 100,000 hours), and they come in both “warm” and “cool” varieties!

In total, all three participating Energy Districts collected almost 600 pounds of holiday string lights!

Clayton County Energy District = 340 lbs. of lights
Delaware County Energy District = 80 lbs. of lights
Jackson County Energy District = 150 lbs. of lights collected!

Plan on recycling your holiday lights next year!
