HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - You can drop off any broken or unwanted lights at any Great Parks visitor center between Dec. 10 and Jan. 11.

Recycling the holiday lights instead of throwing them away keeps these lights out of landfills.  

This is all part of the mission of conservation by the Great Parks of Hamilton County. 

The parks are offering six drop-off locations:

  • Farbach-Werner Nature Preserve: Ellenwood Nature Barn at 3455 Poole Road Cincinnati, OH 45239
  • Glenwood Gardens: Cotswold Visitor Center at 10397 Springfield Pike Cincinnati, OH 45215
  • Miami Whitewater Forest: Visitor Center at 9001 Mt. Hope Road Harrison, OH 45030
  • Sharon Woods: Sharon Centre at 11450 Lebanon Road Sharonville, OH 45241
  • Winton Woods: Winton Centre at 10245 Winton Road Cincinnati, OH 45231
  • Woodland Mound: Seasongood Nature Center at 8250 Old Kellogg Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45255

The lights will be collected and recycled by Great Parks' current contractor for metal recycling.

A valid Great Parks of Hamilton County Motor Vehicle Permit ($10 annual; $3 daily) will be required to enter the parks.
