Recycling Collection Events

Holiday Lights Recycling!

From November 15, 2017 through January 31, 2018, the City of Inver Grove Heights is partnering with ProAct to collect and recycle holiday lights. Stop by the Veterans Memorial Community Center (8055 Barbara Ave) to drop off your holiday lights and electric cords to prevent them from entering the landfill! Between the years 2015 and 2016, we recycled about 120 pounds of holiday lights with your help! 

We will accept the following items:

  • Holiday lights
  • Electric cords
  • Telephone cords
  • Appliance cords
  • Holiday lights removed from pre-lit tree, garland, etc.

We will not accept the following items:

  • Cord adapters
  • Battery packs
  • Plastic rope lights
  • CFL light
  • Light fixtures from holiday light displays

Additional locations: ProAct has created a list of additional locations collecting holiday lights! If you wish to bring your items to these locations, please contact those locations directly to confirm collection dates and accepted items. View additional locations here.
