ROCHESTER, Minn. - Rochester Public Utilies is asking people to drop off their old Christmas lights at their service center building. 

With help from a third party, RPU will take apart the strand lights and recycle the parts. 

They say they hope this will help old lights get disposed of in a more environmentally friendly way. 

They also say it gives people more opportunity to buy newer, more environmentally friendly lights like LED Christmas lights. 

RPU is accepting old Christmas lights until Jan. 31, 2018.
