City introduces holiday lights recycling

The City of Georgetown has partnered with Texas Disposal Systems to offer free holiday string-light recycling to all Georgetown residents. Georgetown is the first city in Central Texas to offer this service.

Residents can drop off their old or broken string lights until Jan. 31 at one of three collection locations:

  • City of Georgetown Collection and Transfer Station, 250 W.L. Walden Road
  • Georgetown Municipal Complex, 300-1 Industrial Ave.
  • Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St.

Sun City residents may also drop off old or broken string lights at the Cowan Creek Pavilion, 1433 Cool Springs Way, in Sun City.

String lights should not be placed in residential or commercial recycling bins because they can damage the sorting machines at the recycling center. String lights must be taken to a collection location. The program is limited to string lights. Yard art, inflatables and other holiday lighting will not be collected.
