HolidayLEDs, which makes energy-efficient LED Christmas light strands, has started its annual incandescent light recycling program.

Between now and the end of the year, you can mail in your jumbles of old light strands for responsible disposal (just the light set, please, not all the old packaging). In exchange, you will receive a 25 percent coupon to buy an LED alternative that uses about 10 percent of the energy as the old ones. When HolidayLEDs receives enough lights, it has them shredded and processed at a recycling facility in Jackson, Michigan, where they are properly sorted according to their individual components.

I don't particularly care whether or not you buy your LED lights from HolidayLEDs or not, but this is a cool idea that the company started several years ago. Given finicky incandescent lights can be, you might want to keep this recycling program in mind when you start taking your Christmas decorations out of storage.
