||Recycle Your Holidays™ is a one-of-kind statewide holiday light recycling program in Minnesota created and managed by the Recycling Association of Minnesota (RAM). Drop off unwanted light strings at any of our 450+ participating locations during the holiday season starting Nov. 15 through Jan. 15, 2015. The program is promoted statewide in partnership with WCCO, Ace Hardware stores and many other partners. It employs over 200 individuals with disabilities at vocational centers throughout the state of Minnestoa. The strands are dismantled by vocational center clients and properly recycled locally.
