Donate Holiday Lights | The Topeka Zoo

Donate Holiday Lights

The Zoo  is a place where you can drop off old holiday lights to be recycled through Jan. 15. This prevents unused, unwanted or broken holiday lights from going to landfill space. “There is a box outside the admission gate for the lights,” Brendan Wiley said. “People can simply drive up, drop off and drive away.”  Learn more here.

Holiday lights will be collected and forwarded to a recycler, where their parts will be separated, allowing 100 percent of each light unit turned in to be recycled.

Rope lights, garland lights, C7, C9, mini lights and LED holiday lights are all accepted. Yard light displays can be accepted as long as they contain electric wiring and can be broken down to lay flat for storage and transportation.
