As in year’s past, Boy Scout Troop 1 are offering to haul away your Christmas Tree in early January.

Pickups will take place the morning of Saturday, January 7.

It’s a flat $10 fee for any tree.

To schedule your pickup email troop1trees@gmail.com or call 508-330-2361.

Requests will be taken until 8:00 pm the night before. Be sure to provide your name, phone number, and address.

Your donation should be in a plastic bag clipped or taped to the top of the tree. The trees must be left at the end of your driveway by 9:00 am that morning.

I remember the days when Campbell Rubbish used to pick up tress for free.

We just drag ours to the woods behind our house to decompose with the rest of the greenery.

I think this is a great service and a fine fundraiser for the Scouts, who do so much for our town. I’d hope if the $10 was a burden, you could speak with the Troop directly and they’d try to accommodate.

Well said Mark. This is a great service and I’m not sure why the above comments are so negative. “…I remember when they were picked up for free or we just drag the tree out back to the woods….” I think the Debbie downers are missing the point here.
