Christmas tree disposal for a good cause
December 27, 2011 · Updated 2:19 PM
Dispose of your Christmas tree and help a good cause after all the gifts are unwrapped and the holiday season comes to an end. Two local groups are sponsoring tree disposal events.
Habitat for Humanity of Island County and Pioneer Tree and Landscape Inc. are partnering to offer the community an option for disposing of Christmas trees. On Friday, Dec. 30, 9 a.m. to noon, Pioneer Tree and Landscaping will be at the chamber lot, next to North Whidbey Middle School, accepting Christmas trees for chipping.
Boy Scout Troop 4053, sponsored by the Central Whidbey Lions Club, will pick up Christmas trees for recycling Sunday, Jan. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The collection area encompasses Dugualla Bay Road south to Greenbank. For arrangements call 678-3263 and leave a message by Jan. 5 at 6 p.m.
