ST. LOUIS (KMOV) -- As Christmas lights in homes and businesses across the area come down, StLouisGreen.com proposes an alternate destination for those lights that have gone bad during the holiday season.
Instead of throwing the bad strands of lights in the trash, there is the option of recycling them.
The organization, Stlouisgreen.com, has already collected more than 20,000 pounds of old lights, which is then recycle for scrap.
The operation is a fundraiser for the organization and for Operation Food Search. The goal for this year is to recycle more than 50,000 pounds of holiday lights.
