Is your Christmas tree beginning to look like a prop from The Walking Dead? You can turn it into landscaping material and benefit the Boy Scouts of America this weekend in Mountlake Terrace.
Local Boy Scout Troop 61 is offering “tree-cycling” on Saturday, Dec. 28 and Sunday, Dec. 29, at two locations in Mountlake Terrace: Rogers’ Market, 23120-56th Ave. W., and Albertsons, 4301-212th St. S.W. The scouts will be on-hand to accept trees without ornaments, tinsel or flocking on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Scouts will be back at both locations for one last opportunity to drop off trees on Saturday, Jan. 4, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The scouts ask for a donation of at least $10 to recycle each tree, which ground into wood chips for private and public landscaping usage.
Troops from throughout Snohomish and north King County raise funds through their tree-cycling efforts to pay for various Boy Scout activities.
