Boy Scouts to pick up Christmas trees

Trees do not need to be cut in sections. We accept flocked trees. Donations can be left under the doormat. Both cities are served twice on each pick-up date between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. There is no need to call to give us an address unless you have special instructions. Please call for special pick-ups outside the city limits. On the pick-up dates, we will also have drop sites available at Veterans Memorial Park, and at the San Juan Bautista Scout House.
