Recycle trees now

Troop 1506 Parents’ Club will also accept trees at the Tracyton Scout Hall on 5164 Bunker Street.

Kitsap County’s “Treecycling” program began this week and runs through Jan. 15 at various locations. Trees are chipped into mulch or compost, which can be returned to the earth as a soil amendment. Residents are asked to remove all nails, wire, tinsel, lights, and ornaments before recycling their tree.

Bremerton Public Works and Bremerton Water Utility Buildings will both serve as drop-off areas for Christmas trees. Fees vary by location.

Additionally, Troop 1506 Parents’ Club will also accept trees at the Tracyton Scout Hall on 5164 Bunker Street.

A donation of $5 is requested to be put inside the mail slot at the hall made out to Troop 1506.

For those unable to drop off trees, pickup can be arranged for Jan. 4. Full name, address and phone number should be sent to Home pickup donations are $10.
