Recycle lights and support the Outreach VanNovember 21, 2017
It happens almost every year. You expectantly plug in a tangle of holiday lights but nothing happens. They don’t light up and you can’t figure out which of the bulbs are broken!
What should you do?
The best option is to repair. This will save you money and minimize waste. This article presents some strategies for testing lights to determine which are broken. However, if your repair efforts are unsuccessful, the next best option is to recycle.
In Whitehorse, Raven Recycling collects lights for recycling. This year, Raven Recycling has partnered with the Outreach Van and will be matching and donating proceeds from recycling the lights to the Outreach Van. Simply drop them off at the Raven Recycling depot between 9 am – 6 pm, Mon – Sat.
