More than 4,000 pounds of unneeded Christmas lights, cords collected

Email

The Crow Wing County Land Services Department, in cooperation with Sunrise Sertoma of Brainerd and Kenwood Recycling, collected 4,345 pounds of unneeded Christmas lights and extension cords at select locations throughout Crow Wing County in 2012, making this the most successful season for the “Bites for Lights” program.

The copper found in the old extension cords and Christmas lights is recycled through Kenwood Enterprises, keeping these materials out of the county landfill.
