Georgetown offering free holiday string-light recycling

GEORGETOWN, Texas (KXAN) — It never fails when you take down the box of holiday lights, there will be a strand that won’t light up.

In an effort to make sure you just don’t throw those lights into the garbage can, the city of Georgetown is partnering with Texas Disposal System to offer free holiday string-light recycling to all Georgetown residents. Yard art, inflatables and other holiday lighting will not be collected.

Residents can drop off their old or broken string lights until Jan. 31 at one of three collection locations:

  • City of Georgetown Collection and Transfer Station, 250 W.L. Walden Road
  • Georgetown Municipal Complex, 300-1 Industrial Ave.
  • Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St.

Sun City residents may also drop off old or broken string lights at the Cowan Creek Pavilion, 1433 Cool Springs Way, in Sun City.

Georgetown is the first city in Central Texas to offer this service.
