Recycle Your Holiday Lights

Monday, January 3, 2022

The City of San Leandro announced that its free holiday lights recycling program is available starting November 15, 2021 through January 14, 2022.

Recycle Your Holiday Lights. 


The City of San Leandro announced that its free holiday lights recycling program is available starting November 15, 2021 through January 14, 2022. Holiday light strands in working or non-working condition may be dropped off Monday through Friday, from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Public Works Service Center, located at 14200 Chapman Road. Compact florescent lights (CFLs), pre-lit trees/decorations and lighted garland are not accepted. This event is open to San Leandro residents only and face covering is required. It can take up to 1,000 years for holiday lights to breakdown in a conventional landfill. Recycling holiday lights conserves natural resources because oil is needed to make plastic. The lights are separated for their metal and plastic and then given new life as new products. Recycling non-working holiday lights is also a great opportunity to make the switch to LED lights, which last longer, and are more energy efficient and durable. Residents are encouraged to bring in their working and/or non-working light strands of all lengths and colors. Collection bins zre located in the lobby of the Public Works Service Center. Lights should be free of all bags, binding and packaging. Extension cords, Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs), pre-lit trees, wreaths, and garland will not be accepted. 

For more information, please call the City of San Leandro Recycling Hotline at (510) 577-6026.
