It's that time of year again, out with the old and in with the new. But, this year, think twice before throwing out those burnt out holiday lights. One Lincoln elementary school wants your holiday trash.
It's all part of Eastridge Elementary's first ever Holiday Lights Recycling Drive.
"Not only are we doing good things for the earth with our green initiative, but also, we're able to raise money for a variety of projects here at the school," PTO president, Bob Reeker, said.
In partnership with Scrap Central Inc., in Omaha, every pound donated will net the school 25-cents.
"That means any lights are maybe are not working can be dropped off at a variety of sites around Lincoln," Reeker said.
The drive kicks off December 1st and last through January 5th.
Here is a list of those sites:
