In Minnesota last year they recycled holiday lights in Hinckley and Grand Marais.  Habitat for Humanity of Superior stepped up and collected your used and or defective holiday lights in the Northland and they're doing it again this year.  Do you have any you need to dispose?

According to a report from the WDIO.com,  Habitat for Humanity is collecting the used and defective holiday lights so they don't end up in our landfills.  Again, the cool thing is, while we are protecting the environment it will also benefit local low income families.

It's the Habitat for Humanity ReStore that is collecting donations of old, defective, and unwanted holiday lights. The program collected more than 600 pounds of lights last year.

There are several convenient locations for you to drop your Christmas lights off at:

  • ReStore, 1621 Broadway Street, Superior
  • Super One, 1515 Oakes Avenue, Superior
  • Super One, 2202 East 2nd Street, Superior
  • Super One, 5300 Bristol Street, West Duluth
  • Campbell's Lumber, 3107 Tower Avenue, Superior
  • Burggraf's Ace Hardware, 1301 East Superior Street, Duluth
  • Savers, 1740 Mall Drive, Duluth
  • Gordy's Gift & Garden Center, 4899 Miller Trunk Highway, Hermantown

The collection runs through tomorrow.
