Newcastle’s Boy Troop 499 will begin circulating through local neighborhoods at 9 a.m. Jan. 4 to collect Christmas trees from homes for disposal.

The group will go through neighborhoods several times, until 2 p.m., for its annual fundraiser.

Homeowners may place their trees at the curb of their home for pickup. Donations for the Scouts are accepted by placing a Ziploc bag and envelope addressed to Troop 499 at 8042 116th Ave. S.E., Newcastle, WA 98056, on the tree. Donations can also be mailed to that address.

If the troop misses a tree, homeowners can call 206-579-7732 or 206-817-8323 for pickup. Read more
