Miles of Christmas lights could be headed out the door as more consumers look at switching from traditional holiday lights to their LED counterparts. Kansas City-based Southeast Enterprises is looking to keep the discarded strands out of landfills.
Southeast Enterprises Business Director Megan Gurera says they accept any unused or broken strands of lights.
“You know the ones you pullout, get ready to put up, and half of it works,” says Gurera.
Southeast Enterprises is a sheltered workshop, employing 160 people with development or intellectual disabilities.
