Holiday String Light Collection

Holiday String Lights Collection

The Jenkintown Library is collecting string lights on behalf of the Jenkintown Environmental Advisory Committee (JEAC) for recycling. From now through January 15th, during regular business hours, if you have old or broken string lights, you can drop them off here. These lights will be properly recycled without harming the environment.
