Educational campaigns provide resources on timely energy topics. CERTified Campaigns provide Minnesotans with clear and actionable ways to implement energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in their community.

Reduce Waste and Save Energy
Get rid of old, broken, inefficient light strands and upgrade to new, efficient LED holiday lights from your local hardware store! CERTs is partnering once again with the Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM) for the 2013-2014 holiday season of Recycle Your Holidays™. RAM recycles every part of the light strings—the metal wires, the plastic casing, and even the lights themselves. We provide a map of drop-off locations that accept holiday lights.
There are a lot of new lighting options out there today, so we created a suite of resources to help you find your way!
