Recycling of Christmas lights encouraged


Joleen Jansen, program director for the Clayton County Energy District, places a recycling box at the Clayton County Register, one of several drop-off spots for recycling strings of Christmas lights.

The Clayton County Clean Energy District is encouraging residents to recycle their old, broken, or unwanted holiday lights and switch to a higher efficiency LED brand. LED (light emitting diode) lights look and act just like incandescent bulbs but use 90 percent less energy. Energy efficiency is one of the main draws for LED bulbs, as well as their substantially longer lifespan. LED Christmas light manufacturers boast 75,000 hour lifespans. In addition, LED lights are more durable. They don’t have a filament so they don’t burn out. Neither fo they require fuses.
