Ever wonder how to recycle those lights on your Ugly Christmas sweater? I thought so. The good news is that once you remove the lights from the sweater, the recycling part is easy. The bad news is that depending on how the lights were attached in the first place, removing them might be tricky.
Holiday lights are made from valuable materials such as copper, glass, and plastic, which can be separated and recycled. Unfortunately, there are still materials such as PVC, and loose bulbs will end up going to the landfill, but recycling is always a better option than throwing the lights in the trash. And, you can recycle all your holiday lights, not just the ones that you are wearing with the same retail hack listed below.
