New program offers Christmas lights recycling


WILLMAR -- Every fall as families decorate porches and roofs with holiday lights, wads of tangled up strings of Christmas lights with burned out bulbs get thrown away. Instead of lighting up the neighborhood, miles of holiday lights end up buried in the landfill.

A new recycling program that kicks off Monday in Kandiyohi County, however, will help keep Christmas green and provide jobs to individuals with disabilities.
