Recycle Holiday Lights through January 14

HSE Schools will be hosting a district wide Holiday Light Recycling Program. Each school is collecting old, broken, tangled, or unwanted holiday lights. Technology Recyclers will take these unwanted/unusable lights and break them down into useable components that will be used to make new products.

Last year, you helped prevent 3,519 pounds of holiday light e-waste from entering landfills and polluting the Earth.

Resist the urge to throw old holiday lights in the trash!

Please participate in HSE district wide Holiday Light Recycling Program this year!

SCE will have collection bins inside the Door 1 entry and outside Door 2. Thank you in advance.
