Christmas tree recycling is being offered by Boy Scout troops in Central Oregon during the weekends of Dec. 31-Jan. 1 and Jan. 7-8. Troops have been posting door flyers with specific pick-up dates for each neighborhood and instructions for recycling trees.

A $5 donation is suggested and should be a check made out to “Boy Scouts of America” and secured to the tree with a plastic bag and rubber band.
