Recycle holiday lights at WUSTL

Faculty, staff and students can recycle burned out or unwanted holiday light strings before, during and after the holidays at the Danforth University Center, the South 40 House and North Campus beginning Monday, Nov. 15.

WUSTL’s Office of Sustainability is partnering with Green Earth Waste Recovery Inc. and Operation Food Search on the initiative, which runs through Saturday, Jan. 15.

Donation boxes will be located in the Danforth University Center’s third floor Event Management Office, Suite 322; in the South 40 House’s main entrance to the dining facility; and at the North Campus Quadrangle Housing Company office and Northern Bites cafe.

All materials collected will be 100 percent recycled. Proceeds from this program will be donated to Operation Food Search.
