City of Georgetown Collection and Transfer Station, 250 W.L. Walden Road
Georgetown Municipal Complex, 300-1 Industrial Ave.

Sun City residents may also drop off old or broken string lights at the Cowan Creek Pavilion, 1433 Cool Spring Way, in Sun City. The program is limited to string lights. Lights must be taken to a collection station and cannot be placed in residential or commercial recycling bins because they will damage the sorting machines at the recycling center. Yard art, inflatables, and other holiday lighting will not be collected.
