As you’re decorating your home for the holidays this year, the City of Florissant has a message for you: don’t throw those old or broken Christmas lights in the trash. Recycle them instead--for free.
In cooperation with Meridian Waste, the city will place a recycling container at the St. Ferdinand Park recycling center specifically for old holiday lights on Dec. 1. The container will remain available through March 1, 2013, the mayor’s office said.
Things to Remember
- The recycling center is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.
- You do not have to be a Florissant resident to use the recycling center. It’s open to the general public, including commercial businesses.
- Other items accepted at the recycling center include newspapers, magazines, cardboard, paperboard, phone books, paperback books, aluminum cans-foil-trays, steel/tin cans, aerosol cans, a variety of plastics and all color of glass items.
