This Saturday and Sunday, you’ll have another opportunity to recycle your Christmas tree when the Edmonds Boy Scouts present tree-cycling services on a donation basis. And remember that all proceeds fund the Scouts’ 2011 activities.
Edmonds drop-off locations
Saturday, Jan. 8 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, Jan. 9 from 10 a.m.- 3 pm.
Troop 300 offers tree-cycling at two locations:
– Top Foods Grocer parking lot, 21900 Highway 99
– Westgate Elementary School, 9601 220th Street Southwest
Edmonds curbside pickup
Saturday, Jan. 8, starting at 8 a.m.
Troop 367 serves the south part of Edmonds, mainly neighborhoods south of 224th Street Southwest from Lake Ballinger into Woodway and all the areas served by Edmonds Way and Firdale Avenue. Homes receiving Troop 367’s door hanger notice and using the service need to have their tree placed at the curb by 8 a.m. on the collection day. (Attach the notice to the tree with a rubber band.)
Donation checks can be made out to Troop 367, and an adult representative will collect it at your door. Contact Ben at 206-533-0222 for more information. (Appointments are not required.)
Note that all decorations, tinsel, tree stands and nails must be removed from the tree so that it can be recycled. Flocked trees are not accepted.
Residents can also go to www.dryneedles.com and use the interactive map of southwest Snohomish County to find any Boy Scout tree-cycle activity near them.
