Residents looking to properly dispose of their Christmas trees will have a number of opportunities thanks to the Boy Scouts.
The Boy Scouts will be collecting and recycling Christmas trees at drop-off locations and also will be doing curbside pickup.
Troop 304 will provide drop-off service on Dec. 29 (from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and on Jan. 5-6 (from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.). The drop-off location is one block north of 196th St. S.W. on 56th Ave. W., west of Wilcox Park. Curbside pickup will be on Jan. 5-6 (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and is within the city limits of Lynnwood and north to 148th St. S.W.
Most single-family residents will receive a notice of this service, along with an envelope. Residents can place their tree out at the curb by 8 a.m. on either of the two curbside pickup days. Donation checks can be made out to Troop 304 and residents can either mail the check in the envelope or fasten it securely to the tree.
Apartment managers can contact Troop 304 for pre-arranged tree pickup. Call Kristen at 425-892-5065 for information
Troop 312 will accept trees from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Jan. 5-6 at its drop-off location at the QFC grocery store parking lot, located at 196th St. S.W. and 76th Ave. W.
Residents can also visit www.dryneedles.com and use the interactive map of Southwest Snohomish County to find any Boy Scout tree-cycle activity near them.
All decorations, tinsel, tree stands and nails must be removed from the tree in order to be recycled. Flocked trees are not accepted.
The Boy Scouts will accept donations.
