January 2, 2013
NEW — 10:15 a.m. Jan. 2, 2013
Recycle your Christmas Tree on Jan. 5 and help support Newcastle Boy Scout Troop 499.
The troop distributed flyers with self-addressed envelopes throughout the Newcastle and Kennydale neighborhoods Dec. 15. Place your bare, unflocked tree out at the curb by 9 a.m. Jan. 5. A truck with Scouts will come by and collect your tree. The trees will be mulched and recycled for parks and trails.
A donation for the service is appreciated. Place your donation (checks payable to Troop 499) in the envelope, then place it inside the bag provided and attach to your tree. Mail donations to Troop 499, 8042 116th Ave. S.E., Newcastle, WA 98056.
Donations allow young Scouts to earn money toward attending summer camp. For missed trees or questions, call 206-817-8323 or 206-579-7732.
If you would prefer, you may bring your tree to Renton Academy between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Jan. 5. Troop 499 thanks you for your support.
The troop expects to visit more than 6,500 homes this year.
