Christmas Light Trade in at Home Depot

Eco Lights Hero

From the Home Depot Website(Thanks My Money Mission Online!):

Bring your old, broken or used incandescent Christmas light strings to any 
The Home Depot store for recycling, and receive $3 off a single receipt 
in-store purchase of LED Christmas lights!
(limit 5 discounts per customer) 
Features & Benefits 
• Use 80% less energy than traditional incandescent holiday lights
• ENERGY STAR® qualified
• Can last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent lights
• Cool to the touch, reducing the risk of fire
• Do not have moving parts, filaments or glass, so they are much more durable and shock resistant than other lights
• The amount of electricity consumed by just one 7-watt incandescent bulb could power 140 LEDs – enough to light two 
24 foot strings
How Lights Are Recycled 
• The light bulb coupler and the socket plug are manually clipped
• Three byproducts result and four categories of raw materials
• Each byproduct is independently shredded for separation, returning glass, HDPE plastics, and non-ferrous copper as 
well as ferrous steel
• The prepared separated raw materials are then sent to licensed smelters for re-casting or re-molding, all in accordance 
with local, state and federal statutes
