Recycle Christmas Lights

Great Parks And Cohen Offer Free Holiday Lights Recycling

Have your holiday lights lost their twinkle? Drop off broken or unwanted lights at any Great Parks visitor center between December 1, 2017, and January 10, 2018.

Holiday lights should not be placed in your green curbside recycling cart.

Recycling holiday lights instead of throwing them in the trash keeps them out of landfills and gives them a new life. As part of its mission of conservation, Great Parks of Hamilton County is offering six convenient drop-off locations to the public. The lights are collected by Great Parks and taken to Cohen Recycling*.

Marked bins are available at the locations listed below, which are open from dawn until dusk:

• Farbach-Werner Nature Preserve: Ellenwood Nature Barn 3455 Poole Road Cincinnati, OH 45239
• Glenwood Gardens: Cotswold Visitor Center 10397 Springfield Pike Cincinnati, OH 45215
• Miami Whitewater Forest: Visitor Center 9001 Mt. Hope Road Harrison, OH 45030
• Sharon Woods: Sharon Centre 11450 Lebanon Road Sharonville, OH 45241
• Winton Woods: Winton Centre 10245 Winton Road Cincinnati, OH 45231
• Woodland Mound: Seasongood Nature Center 8250 Old Kellogg Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45255

For additional information, please visit greatparks.org or call 513-521-7275. *Holiday lights can be recycled at any Cohen location (http://cohenusa.com/locations/cincinnati) year round.

Happy recycling!

  • The Cincinnati Museum Center is donating tickets to the Holiday Junction train show as a door prize!
