Make your holidays a little greener at PDZA!

Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium is teaming up with Girl Scouts of Western Washington again this year on the holiday lights recycling program. Working together, we hope to keep thousands of strings of lights out of the landfill. 

Bring your old lights Nov. 24 through Jan. 12.

All proceeds from the 2017 Holiday Lights Recycling Program will fund shark conservation.

Tips for Recycling Lights

  • Please remove all packaging, twist-ties and rubber bands.
  • Please place lights directly in the bin with no bags or other extra material.   

Bring your lights here

Please drop your unwanted holiday lights in designated bins at the Zoo’s main entrance or other locations.
