Boy Scout Troop 557 will be recycling Christmas trees again this year. Scouts will collect trees from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday curbside in Redmond at Bear Creek Country Club and in the Trilogy, River Trail and Meadowview communities and a few other smaller neighborhoods.
For more than 15 years, Troop 557 has participated in this scouting service project and fund-raiser. Donations received are used toward running its Boy Scout troop for the coming year.
Residents in the troop's collection area will have either received a flier or a notice from their homeowners association. Residents are asked to leave their trees curbside by 10 a.m. on the collection days with a donation.
Trees may also be dropped off from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday at the troop's collection station in the Bella Botega car park near QFC on Northeast 90th Street in Redmond.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the troop on the collection days at (425) 954-3557.
