Holiday Light Recycling – Winter 2009-2010

 
The Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM) in partnership with WCCO TV, Xcel Energy, Snyders Drug Stores and CERTs, launched Recycle Your Holidays™ for the 2009-2010 holiday season. CERTs helped with drop-off location recruitment and collection as well as hosted a map of participating drop-off locations across the state. The program collected 100,000 pounds of holiday lights and promoted LED holiday lights as an energy-efficient replacement.
