Scouts to recycle Christmas trees on Jan. 8

Sammamish Boy Scout troops will be recycling Christmas trees on Saturday, Jan. 8.

The Scout Tree Drive is the primary fundraiser for six troops on the Sammamish plateau. A Sammamish Girl Scout troop will also participate for a third year.

All donations fund scouting programs in Sammamish. Donations from residents are a crucial part of the scouts ability to fund a quality program for Sammamish youth.

This will be the scouts’s 37th year of recycling trees for Sammamish and Issaquah Highlands residents. More than 200 scouts and volunteers participate and thousands of Christmas trees have been recycled to date.

Trees will be picked up curbside starting at 8 a.m. The suggested donation is $15-$25 per tree. Donations may be made online or via a check attached to the tree inside a plastic Ziploc bag.
