The South Washoe DEMS Climate Change Champions committee is once again collecting broken or unwanted strings of holiday lights this season. Since the strings cannot be included in regular recycle containers, we encourage you to contribute your strings to the lights recycling project. Holiday lights are made from copper, glass, and plastic—some of these materials can be recycled and reclaimed. In addition to the Neighborhood collection locations, 3 fire stations have been added as collection sites through January 9th.

Now thru January 8, 2022, simply drop your lights off in the labelled collection box at one of our drop-off locations:

 Neighborhood  Address
 ArrowCreek  2973 Eagle Rock Court
2764 Spirit Rock Trail
 Damonte Ranch  2455 Makenna Drive
2311 Clementine Lane
11245 Messina Way
 Hidden Valley  5951 Indus Drive
 Pleasant/Steamboat and Washoe Valleys  184 Concho Drive
 Saddlehorn / Fieldcreek  70 Margarita Court
 Toll Road  1615 Moon Lane
 Virginia Foothills  14385 Riata Circle

Now through January 9th (one day longer than the residential locations), these fire stations will have plastic trash cans placed in an obvious location for lights collection. The cans will have a sign on them identifying our project. PLEASE DO NOT REQUEST INFORMATION ABOUT THE LIGHTS COLLECTION FROM THE FIRE FIGHTERS! These stations have kindly offered space for us, but the project is our responsibility.

 Fire Station  Address
 ArrowCreek, Station #36  13500 Thomas Creek Road
 Hidden Valley, Station #37  3255 Hidden Valley Drive
 Foothill, Station #33  470 Foothill Road
