Holiday Light Recycling Program
The Barrington Public Works Department partners with Elgin Recycling to establish a Holiday Light Recycling Program. Drop off your used holiday lights at the main entrance of the Public Works Facility, 300 N. Raymond Avenue, from November 18, 2019 through March 30, 2020. Accepted for recycling are: mini-lights (or Italian lights), C7 lights, C9 lights, rope lights, LED lights, and extension cords. All colors and lengths will be accepted. The Village will not accept garland, live greens, wreaths, or other non-recyclables. For more information on this program please contact the Public Works Department at (847) 381-7903 or visit www.elginrecycling.com.
IMPORTANT: This recycling event does not include electronics. Electronics can be picked up curbside by calling Groot at 1-800-244-1977.
In addition, DO NOT bring paper in plastic bags. Plastic is a contaminant, as are photos, slides, and any non-paper item. Also, DO NOT include magazines, greeting cards or newspapers, as these can be recycled curbside.
