Southeast Enterprises 2013-2014 Holiday Light Recycling Drive

Kansas City, MO – November 5, 2013 - During November 17, 2013, through January 26, 2014, Southeast Enterprises, a local nonprofit sheltered workshop that employs over 160 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, will partner with over 165 locations throughout the Kansas City area to provide drop-off sites where the public can bring their non-working holiday lights for recycling. Once collected, most of Southeast’s employees will work to prepare the lights for recycling.

Last year, the combined efforts of Southeast, sponsors and citizens throughout the Greater Kansas City Area helped to save over 32,000 pounds of holiday lights from the landfill and keep Southeast’s employees working throughout the calendar year. From November 17, 2013, through January 26, 2014, collection containers will be placed at participating locations throughout the Greater Kansas City Area for drop-off.
