Christmas Lights
CANNOT Be Recycled
If you have encountered the familiar scenario of testing out Christmas light strands then you'll be interested to know that Christmas lights are not recyclable, and they belong in your trash cart.

Christmas light strands can cause damage to our Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) and they create potential risks for our staff at our MRF. Please be sure to place all Christmas lights, extension cords, or rope like waste of any kind in your trash cart or container.
When you're done with the fort you made with your amazon boxes, be sure to break down the cardboard boxes before putting them in your recycling cart .
DISPOSE OF BATTERIES IN THE BIN LOCATED AT 455 INDUSTRIAL DRIVE
BATTERIES ARE HIGHLY FLAMMABLE!

To protect our employees, avoid the risk of fire in our collection trucks, and prevent fire in our MRF, we ask that you PLEASE USE THE BATTERY COLLECTION RECEPTACLE in the Galt Police Department Parking Lot. Please do not place any batteries in Cal-Waste’s collection carts. Household alkaline batteries (including A, AA, AAA, C, D, 6-volt and 9-volt), cell phones, smart phones, iPods and other mp3 players, and their chargers are collected in clear plastic zip-lock bags and can be dropped off free of charge at the: Elk Grove Special Waste Collection Center.

In addition to the risk of fire, California environmental laws dictate that household batteries can’t be taken to the landfill. This Special Battery Collection Receptacle was purchased with a grant from CalRecycle. The City of Galt is anticipating placing an additional bin on the northeast side of town. Please remove all batteries from storage bags. Only household batteries may be placed in the bin; no automotive or motorcycle batteries are allowed.
