Mundelein is partnering with Elgin Recycling, Inc., for a free holiday light recycling program, which runs through Jan. 31. From 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., old holiday lights can be brought to: the village hall, 440 E. Hawley St.; public works facility, 440 E. Crystal St.; Fire Station #1, 1000 N. Midlothian Road; or Fire Station #2, 1300 S. Lake St. Only the light strands themselves will be taken; bulbs do not have to be removed from the strands. However, light strands connected to wreaths, garlands, or other material are not accepted. For questions or bulk drop offs, call (847) 949-3270 or visit www.elginrecycling.com.
