Christmas Light Recycling 2015

Christmas Light Recycling Event

            Join us again this year as we collect non-working Christmas lights! Keep Loup Basin Beautiful is collecting non-working lights to be recycled and we have many locations located around the Loup Basin RC&D and North Central Nebraska RC&D region.

In January, the lights will be gathered up and taken to the Cross Training Center in Omaha, NE to be recycled.  The Cross Training Center is a non-profit organization whose mission is “to empower and equip disadvantaged and undereducated men and women through character development, vocational training and job experience.”  They provide the support, life skills, training, and experience needed for their students to become self-sufficient and successful in the home, the workplace and the community.  Students at the Center refurbish or recycle many types of electronics and appliances; providing work opportunities and keeping useful materials out of landfills.
