Again this year, the Sleepy Eye YES! Team will collect discarded holiday lights.

Again this year, the Sleepy Eye YES! Team will collect discarded holiday lights. The public is invited to “Recycle your Holidays,” by dropping unwanted holiday light strings in collection boxes at McCabe’s Ace Hardware, Schutz Family Food, St. Mary’s Church and School, Sleepy Eye Public School, Trinity Lutheran Church and Brown County REA.

Sleepy Eye’s community collection will be given to Jobs Plus, Inc. in Waseca. Jobs Plus provides jobs for adults with special needs who will dismantle the lights and get them ready to be recycled through a facility in the Twin Cities.

The collection runs until Jan. 19.
