Results are rolling in! New London- Spicer, Litchfield, WWG and Springfield have all contributed hefty loads to the Holiday Light Campaign. The lights collected by YES teams are being processed at West Central Industries in Willmar.
WWG collected a weighty 90 pounds of lights, Springfield held their own, by collecting 332.60 pounds of lights, and Litchfield has gathered upwards of 70 pounds of lights as well!
We hope to soon post more information (including video) of how they recycle the lights. In the meantime, you can find more information about Recycle the Holidays at the following websites:
