Do you know where to recycle old christmas lights?

Hunter Ingram

Joe Suleyman, director of the New Hanover County Environmental Management, said lights of the Christmas variety and any other electrical devices are accepted at the Household Hazard Waste and Electronics Recycling facility.

“Anything you plug in or stick batteries in, we’ll take it,” Suleyman said.

The facility is free to use for county residents. All materials are either recycled, repurposed, used for alternative power generation or disposed of in accordance with state and federal law, according to the county website.

The facility is located at 3002 U.S. 421 North. It is open 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday.
