Sleepy Eye YES! team recently went caroling for lights, where they went door to door to collect old holiday lights people wanted to recycle. They have collected 400lbs so far, and they are still going!
They plan to continue to collect lights now through next week at their schools. If you still have a bag of lights you’d like to recycle drop them off at either the Sleepy Eye High School or St. Mary’s Catholic School soon!
Other YES! teams collecting lights include:
- Litchfield High School
- Minnewaska High School (Glenwood)
- Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City High School (Grove City)
- GFW High School (Winthrop)
- Westbrook-Walnut Grove High School (Westbrook)
- Springfield High School, (Springfield)
- Redwood Valley High School (Redwood Falls)
All teams are weighing their lights to help calculate how much they’re keeping out of the landfills. Lights will be recycled at Willmar’s West Central Industries where adults with developmental disabilities are employed to help recycle the lights.
