The Great Barrington Boy Scouts will once again recycle Christmas trees after the New Year as a public service to the community as your donations will also raise funds for troop 23.

You can drop your tree off on the first 2 Saturdays of the new month, January 5th and 12th between 10 am and 1 pm at The Home Sweet Home Doughnut Shoppe located at 258 Stockbridge Road in Great Barrington. A $5 donation is recommended and in exchange you will receive a coupon redeemable for a FREE coffee and doughnut upon your next visit.

Another option: They will pick up your tree curbside prior to 9 am along with a $10 donation that must be included in a zip lock bag. Tinsel, nails wire and discarded ornaments must be removed prior to disposal. Make your check payable to Boy Scout Troop 23 as your support provides a quality, local scouting program for local youth.
