Email News Alerts

A popular move these days is to change light bulbs to LED -- or light-emitting diode -- bulbs to save energy and money.

Now, Becker County is helping with changing Christmas lights over to LED as well.


"Recycle your Holidays" is a way to get people to not only switch to LED lights, but also to recycle the old lights into tiles, asphalt and insulation.

"It's brand new," Becker County Environmental Services' Sandy Gunderson said. "It's kind of a fun program."
