Don’t throw those old holiday light sets in the garbage. Recycle them instead. WACOSA, in collaboration with the Recycling Association of Minnesota, is collecting unwanted light strings, electrical, telephone and appliance cords this holiday season. WACOSA workers will remove the bulbs from the holiday light strings and then all bulbs and donated cords will be recycled. Several area businesses have collection boxes for these items that can be brought in during their regular business hours. These locations include the following: Ace Hardware in Little Falls, Brenny Transportation in St. Joseph, Denny and Kathy’s Ace Hardware in St. Cloud, Mimbach Fleet Supply in Sauk Rapids, MinnWest Bank in St. Cloud, Sentry Bank in St. Cloud and St. Joseph. Tri-County Solid Waste in Waite Park, WACOSA’s DocuShred Storefront in Waite Park and Whitney Senior Center, St. Cloud. WACOSA is a non-profit organization that serves more than 550 adults with disabilities in Central Minnesota. Operating since 1963, WACOSA has program sites in Waite Park, Sauk Centre and at Whitney Senior Center. Most of our workers face barriers to employment and WACOSA is here to help knock down those barriers. We help them find paid work to match their abilities. For more information about the holiday light recycling program or if you would like collection bins for your business location, please call Beth at WACOSA 320-257-5182.
