Springfield YES Team Recycles 20 Jan 12

The Springfield High School YES Team recently collected around 400 pounds of outdated or tangled holiday lights for recycling. Bins had been placed at Tauer’s SuperValu and Running’s in Springfield, and students also brought their old lights to school. Some were also dropped off at YES Team members’ homes. The lights were then recycled at the Prairie Woods Environmental Learning Center in Spicer, which recycled more than 100,000 pounds of holiday lights in 2011.
