Great Deal on Christmas Lights at Home Depot

Soon it will be time to dig out your ladder and begin hanging the Christmas lights. If you find that yours are needing to be replaced, a great time to do it might be November 5th – 15th at Home Depot. They are offering a Christmas light trade-in of $3.00 off of the purchase price — which means only $2.97 for your lights!

Here are the features of using the new LED bulb:

* Uses 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 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

What is great is that Home Depot will recycle the lights you bring in – so they will not end up in a landfill. Here is what is done to recycle Christmas lights:

* 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
