DeKALB – The DeKalb County Health Department is partnering with DeKalb Iron and Metal (DIMCO) to recycle Christmas lights this season.

The recycling program will run from Nov. 18 until Jan. 13. Lights that will be accepted are mini-lights (or Italian lights), C7 lights, C9 lights, rope lights, LED lights and extension cords.

• DeKalb Park District Sports & Rec Center, 1765 S. Fourth St., DeKalb

• Haish Gym, 303 S. Ninth St., DeKalb

• City of DeKalb Municipal Building, 200 S. Fourth St.
