Holiday lights should be stored for use again next year. Broken or unwanted holiday lights cannot be placed in your recycling bin. The CNY Veterans Outreach Center is accepting donations of old holiday lights this holiday season. The lights will be recycled and proceeds will go to provide services for Veterans and their families. The CNY Veterans Outreach Center is located at 726 Washington Street in Utica and is open Monday-Friday from 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM for drop offs. To schedule a large pickup of lights, call 315-765-0975. You may also deliver holiday lights to the Authority’s Utica or Rome EcoDrops for proper recycling at no charge, or dispose of them with your regular trash. Other types of electronic waste such as computers and televisions are also accepted at the Authority’s Utica and Rome EcoDrops year round, at no charge.
