Don’t let broken lights dim your holiday spirit! The Centerville-Washington Park District now is a collection location for the Five Rivers MetroParks/Cohen Holiday Lights Recycling Drive. The drive ends Sunday, February 2. Drop off unwanted lights at the CWPD headquarters building at Activity Center Park, 221 N. Main St.

If enough lights are collected, Cohen will make a donation to the Five Rivers MetroParks Foundation. Help our friends at Five Rivers and keep your lights out of the landfill!

Extra waste generated during the holidays — including decorations, food and paper waste —amounts to 25 million tons of garbage, according to the Use Less Stuff Report and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
