Holiday Light Recycling

Posted on December 01, 2022

Recycle Your Old/Broken Holiday Lights!

From December 1st to February 1st, holiday lights (traditional and LED-style bulbs) can be dropped off at various locations throughout Northern Kentucky - including the Fort Wright City Administration Building!

Our lobby is open 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday, for you to drop off those broken or unwanted light strands. Before recycling, please remove any batteries, boxes, and bags. You can visit for more information. 

This recycling event is made possible through a partnership between Kenton County Public Works / Solid Waste and Cohen Recycling, along with the City of Covington and Keep Covington Beautiful. 

There is a friendly competition between Boone, Kenton, and Campbell counties to see which one can collect the most lights for recycling. Help Kenton County take the (lighted) crown!
