Marysville Parks, Boy Scouts team up to recycle Christmas trees

MARYSVILLE — Want to recycle your Christmas tree? Marysville Parks and Recreation Department and Marysville-area Boy Scouts can help.

When the holidays are over and you're ready to take down the tree, the Parks Department and Boy Scouts encourage you to recycle your tree by leaving it at curbside for pickup. You will help Scouts raise funds for their activities, and give your tree new life as recycled mulch and chips that City crews will use at various local parks and trails.

Boy Scouts from Troop 80 in Marysville will pick up your tree between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 5 only. Please have your tree at curbside by 8 a.m.

If you have not already received one, look for a donation envelope at your door between now and prior to the tree pickup date. When you're ready to have your green tree collected (all flocking and tinsel must be removed), leave it at the curb the night before pickup. Scouts will deliver it to the tree collection site at Strawberry Fields Park, 6100 152nd St. NE. If you prefer, you can bring your tree to the park from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

Donations are optional. Please mail your donation check to Troop 80, 6907 75th Drive NE, Marysville, WA 98270. For more information contact the Parks Office at 360-363-8400.
