WHEATON, Ill. - It's the curse of every Christmas decorator — dead light strings.
But now — you can get rid of them in an environmentally friendly way.
Wheaton is taking dead lights for recycling.
You can drop them at the city's public works storage facility on Liberty Drive through Jan. 20.
They're open 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays.
The program is for light strings only, and you're asked to bring them in unboxed.
