Recycle Your Holiday Lights

Recycle Your Holidays takes place from November 15 through the end of January each year. Over 840,000 pounds of holiday lights have been recycled since the program’s start. Strands are dismantled by individuals with disabilities at vocational centers in Minnesota and recycled locally. Check out this map to find where you can recycle your lights.

Phishing Scam

The Minnesota Department of Revenue is warning taxpayers of a recent over-the-phone phishing scam. Beware of automated phone calls and voice messages saying legal action is being taken against you by the IRS. More information about these types of scams can be found on the IRS website.

Phishing (as in “fishing for information” and “hooking” victims) is a scam to trick taxpayers into revealing personal and financial information which can be used to steal the taxpayer’s identity.

Use caution and NEVER provide personal information unless you are absolutely sure the situation is legitimate.
