HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital is accepting broken and/or unwanted Christmas lights between now and Friday, Jan. 13, 2017.
Anyone who would like to drop off their unwanted working or non-working Christmas lights can leave them next to the small electronics recycling box on the Ground Floor near the entrance to the cafeteria at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital, located at 855 S. Main St. in Oconto Falls.
“Millions of Christmas lights are discarded each year in the United States,” said Dan Rocheleau, Campus and Sustainability Facilitator at HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital. “Many people do not know that Christmas lights can be recycled, and we encourage others to do their part in keeping this recyclable product out of our landfills.”
The Christmas light collection is sponsored by The Green Team – a group of Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) – Eastern Wisconsin Division colleagues that share the common goal of identifying, educating and implementing sustainability programs that support the Hospital Sisters of St. Francis’ mission of reverence for the earth.
