Christmas Lights Recycling

Yes!  We accept lights for recycling all year.

Our Christmas Lights Recycling program has run continuously for over 4 years and continues to operated in 2014.

We are amazed at the number of people who take advantage of this program every year. We receive several boxes of lights every day from all over the country.

We gather up the lights and when we have a truck full, we cart them to Irving, TX to a recycling company who actually strips the lights apart and recovers as much copper, glass and metals from the lights as possible.

At the end of the year, we take the proceeds for the year’s recycling – it averages about $1000 or so – to half price books and we purchase books and educational toys. Last year, Half Price generously discounted their already low prices with an additional 15% discount. We estimated that the retail value of the items we took to Toys for Tots in December 2013 was worth a little more than $1000.

If you are thinking of sending in your unwanted lights, thank you in advance.

Here’s the address for the program.  Send your unwanted lights in the cheapest way possible.  As a thank you, you’ll receive a code for 10% off of your next order of Christmas lights at our store.
