Local Boy Scouts recycle Christmas trees for fundraiser

Boy Scout Troops 115, 425 and 466 will pick up trees on Jan. 5.

It’s time to recycle Christmas trees again. Boy Scout troops 115, 425 and 466 will be picking up Christmas trees as part of their annual fundraiser. Local Boy Scouts will be picking up the trees within the North Bend, Snoqualmie and Fall City areas on Saturday, Jan. 5, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All trees need to be placed in driveways no later than 8 a.m. without decorations. The troops will not take tinsel, flocked (fake snow) trees, nails or wreaths. A $15 suggested donation will help the troops yearround. The donations should be in an envelope and attached to the base of the tree. Checks are to be made payable to BSA Troop 115. No cash is accepted.

The trees will be picked up in designated neighborhoods, according to previous successful tree pick ups and available resources for each troop. About 100 Boy Scouts will help pick up trees in the Valley.

“We believe in the program and what it does to teach these young men over the years,” Troop 466 Scoutmaster Berry Rogers said. “We want to keep scouting affordable… funds that are earned through this fundraisers and other [fundraisers] go straight back into the program to keep the cost of the program affordable for families in the Valley.”

The Boy scout Troops are suggesting a donation of $15. The collected funds go back into the Boy Scout program to help fund various activities, equipment, and to keep scouting affordable. Photo courtesy of Boy Scout Troop 466.
