About the Tree Recycle Program
This is the 20th year our Boy Scouts have recycled trees on Bainbridge, each year we try to improve our service. Our next pickup day is on Saturday Jan TBD, 2018
. Tree recycling is both a community service and a fundraising event for our troop. One day a year we pick up trees from all addresses with a reservation. We suggest a donation of $10 to $15 for the pickup service. Here is an overview of the program:
- When you reserve (on the web or by phone), the Boy Scouts note your name, address, email, and phone number.
- All of the addresses are divided into groups based on location just prior to pick-up day.
- On the Pick-up day, teams of scouts and drivers fan out over the Island to pick up trees. We start at about 8:00 AM and finish around 4:00 PM.
- If we cannot find your address or tree, we try to contact you by phone.
- The trees are chipped and are used on the island as mulch.
Our Christmas tree pick up service is complete for 2017. Our troop continues to accept online donations for the completed pick up service
Lost and Found
Each year we spare ornaments from the chipper - many have special value. Let us know if you see one that you forgot and would like it back.
