Members of Keizer Boy Scout Troop 121 will be ready to help close out the holiday season as they offer to recycle Christmas trees this weekend and the first weekend of January.
The scouts will be accepting trees and donations at two locations Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 29 and 30, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It will be the same hours on January 5 and 6. The two locations are at the Keizer branch of U.S. Bank at 5110 River Rd. N. and at Schoolhouse Square at the corner of River and Chemawa Roads.
The Boy Scouts of Troop 121 also offer to pick up trees for those who live in the Keizer-Salem area on the same days. Call or text 503-877-HAUL for the service or request a tree pick-up by visiting www.keizertroop121.com.
The tree recycling is the major fundraiser for Troop 121. The money helps scouts attend summer camp via ‘camperships,’ and other scouting purposes.
The donations are tax deductible and proceeds stay within the local scout troop.
