To reduce the costs and environmental impacts of shipping, please:
1. Use cardboard boxes or other packaging that can easily be recycled.
2. Coordinate with friends, neighbors, co-workers, social groups, church groups, or other organizations to collect lights and send in one bulk shipment.
3. Include only the lights sets and compact them into the smallest space possible. Please leave out packing material, retail boxes, or anything used to wind up or store the lights. employees will remove the lights and recycle the box. Once a substantial number of sets are collected, they are taken to a 3rd party recycling facility located in Jackson, MI. The recycling company puts the Christmas lights through a shredder that chops the lights into little pieces. These are processed and sorted into recyclable components (i.e., PVC, glass, copper), which are transported to a regional center for further processing. In some cases, however, the PVC cannot be recycled.

All 25% off coupons may be redeemed once on a single order and may not be used with any other offer, discount or coupon. Lights sent to any other address than the one above may not be received or recycled.
