Here’s where DeKalb County residents can recycle old, broken holiday lights this season

GE offers the latest in lighting technology with its new iTwinkle holiday light sets and pre-lit Christmas trees. Each of the bulbs holds three LEDs – red, green and blue – that can be combined to create thousands of color choices.

DeKalb County residents wishing to recycle old or broken holiday lights can do so at four locations around DeKalb and Sycamore through Jan. 31.

The drop-off spots opened Nov. 28, according to the DeKalb County Health Department.
