NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - December 19, 2013) - Sims Metal Management (ASX: SGM) (OTC: SMSMY), the world's largest metals and electronics recycler, announced they can accept all types of holiday lights for recycling this season. Both working and non-working incandescent or light emitting diode (LED) lights can be collected at your local Sims Metal Management facility.

"This Holiday season Sims Metal Management wanted to send out an important reminder for those replacing their holiday lights, to properly dispose of the old," stated Bob Kelman, president of Sims Metal Management, North America. "By recycling these old or broken lights with Sims, we can help keep the toxins in the electric cables from polluting local landfills."
