Did you find any broken holiday lights when putting up the tree or decorating the house this year? If so, the Village of Gilberts is working with Elgin Recycling to give residents the opportunity to properly dispose of holiday lights.
To recycle your holiday lights, please place them in the designated bin that will be placed next to the Utility Bill Dropbox in the Village Hall parking lot or the bin next to the entrance of the Public Works building at 73 Industrial Drive. This program will be available from December 1st, 2019 until February 1st, 2020. Lights that will be accepted for this program are: Mini-lights (or Italian lights), C7 lights, C9 lights, rope lights, LED lights, extension cords, etc. All colors and lengths will be accepted. Garland, live greens, wreaths or other non-recyclables will not be accepted.
