Halloween is officially come and gone, which means the retail world is talking Christmas. If you're going to make the plunge into LED holiday lights this season, HolidayLEDs.com has officially started its 2009 light recycling program. If you send in your old incandescent lights, you'll receive a 15 percent discount coupon off LED replacements redeemable with HolidayLEDs.com. The collection effort will run through February 2010.

Last year, HolidayLEDs.com collected about 5,000 pounds of old lights. In case you're wondering what happens to them, the company says it works with a recycling facility in Michigan where they are shredded, separated and then recycled as each component (glass, metal or plastic) dictates.

Here's the mailing address:

HolidayLEDs.com Attn: Recycling Program 118 Rosehill Rd., Suite 118 Jackson, MI 49202
