Holiday Light Recycling

The Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County (SWANCC) and its member communities are offering a Holiday Light Recycling Program, free of charge.

All holiday string lighting and extension cords can be dropped off at various locations throughout northern Cook County. Garland, live greens, wreaths or other non-recyclables are not accepted in this program. Elgin Recycling is processing the material. Please note that SWANCC residents are able to participate in any event, regardless of location.
