Holiday string lights, working or non-working, are accepted for recycling at MOM’s Organic Market (9801 Rhode Island Avenue, College Park). The string lights are collected for recycling in December and the beginning of January.
Please remove lights from bags/packaging and place in designated holiday lights recycling bin located in the lobby when you enter MOM’s Organic Market.
What happens to the waste? Collected lights are broken down through smelting or shredding to recover raw commodities. These raw commodities are then used to create roofing and construction materials, piping, car batteries, other electronics, lead wheel weights, flatware, jewelry, and more!
