Pine River Chamber is Christmas lights drop-off point


The Pine River Chamber of Commerce Information Center is an official drop-off point for used and/or non-working Christmas lights.  

Strings can be dropped off at the chamber office during winter season open hours, Monday through Wednesday and Friday and Saturday. If the center is closed when you arrive, just leave the lights outside the restroom doors.  

The lights are being picked up by the Pine River Day Activity Center where they will be recycled.
