Holiday Lights Recycling
Have your Holiday Lights lost their twinkle?
Every year it seems as you unpack your Christmas decorations, another set of lights is tangled or broken, and you are faced with the same problem as to what to do with them.
Fortunately, it is easier than ever to recycle Christmas lights responsibly. From Thanksgiving through January 10, 2013 you can drop off old, broken light strings and extension cords at the following 6 locations: Flossmoor Village Hall, H-F Ice Arena, Wiley's Grill, Irwin Community Center, H-F Racquet & Fitness Club and Irons Oaks.
Lights can also be brought to Christmas Tree Recycling on Saturdays December 29 and January 5 at Irons Oaks.
More About Irons Oaks Environmental Learning Center
If you're bored with the routine of daily life, look no further than Irons Oaks. This unique community resource is a place for adventure, education and team building. Get your heart pumping as you maneuver through the treacherous high ropes course -- more than 30 feet in the air -- or challenge the minds of you and your team by figuring out how to fit all of you on a 2x2 foot wooden platform (much harder than it sound). Once exhausted from all the adventure, a meditative stroll through the nature walk will be sure to calm your nerves. Irons Oaks also features an interactive museum where kids and adults can learn about animal tracks and how to be more environmentally aware. The learning, challenge and fun is nearly limitless at this public gem.
