As it gets closer to New Year’s Day, more and more people will begin to take down their holiday light displays. I know I usually like to have it put away by then because I’m done looking at it, at least for another year. This year I put up very few lights because the house we’re renting has extensive gutters and aluminum siding. On top of that, I don’t have a ladder that will allow me to get too crazy with the decorations. I also noticed that several strings of my lights don’t work.
I’ve been wanting to switch over to LED light strings but am waiting for the cost to come down a little and for my strings to quit working. If you’re in the same conundrum, wanting to switch over but not sure what to do with the old lights, you should check out this Christmas Light Recycling Program. Holiday LED’s will recycle the old strands you mail them and give you a 15% off coupon for new strings of LED lights. That’s a pretty cool deal and a great way to properly dispose of your old lights.
Have you made the switch to holiday LED light sets yet? If so, what do you think? If not, what’s keeping you from doing it?
