Don't Throw Out Old Christmas Lights, Recycle Them!

Receive a $5 Crown-Ace Hardware gift card when you bring in your old lights.

Trying to untangle old Christmas lights is a drag, but a new recycling program is hoping to make that task a little easier.

This holiday season, and 1-800-GOT-SCRAP is offering a $5 gift certificate --redeemable for purchases over $20--to customers who recycle old Christmas lights.

Mark Schulein, owner of 17 Crown-Ace stores in Orange, Riverside and San Diego counties, says getting rid of old lights in exchange for new ones is more energy efficient and safer because "each year, many homeowners lose their homes due to fires caused by faulty holiday lights.” 

There are three Crown-Ace Hardware stores located in Newport Beach:

  • is located at 3107 E. Coast Highway, for more information call 949-673-2800.
  • is located at 2644 San Miguel Dr., for more information call 949-644-8570.
  • Crown Ace Hardware is located at 1024 Irvine Ave., for more information call 949-642-1133.
