Breese hospital will recycle Christmas lights

HSHS St. Joseph’s in Breese will continue to collect unwanted holiday lights for recycling through Friday, Jan. 15.

Collection tubs are in the hospital Front Lobby and Physician Office Building atrium with a third tub in the east entrance for hospital colleagues and volunteers.

Lights and light strands should be removed from any cardboard or plastic packaging and dropped loose – not in a plastic or paper bag — into the collection bins. Lights may be left on the strings.

The holiday light recycling project is a small step toward a “greener” Christmas season, said hospital Purchasing Director Carl Kuhl.
