Christmas lightbulb recycling program

Wondering what to do with all those old burned-out Christmas light bulbs? Look no further! A Christmas light company based in Texas started a lightbulb recycling program. Instead of sending the old copper, glass, and plastic to the landfill, Christmas Light Source sells them to a Texas recycling program. All the proceeds will be used for purchasing Usborne books and donating them to the Marine Tots for Toys Foundation.

Here's how you can participate:

Box up your old Christmas lights in the smallest possible box they'll fit into and send them (via the slowest, cheapest shipping method) to:

Christmas Light Source Recycling Program
1923 6th Avenue
Fort Worth, TX 76110
