Beginning December 29, Omaha area Boy Scouts will provide the 15th Annual Christmas Tree Pick–Up Drive.
Again this year Troop 282 & Troop 558 will offer a community service with curbside Christmas tree pick-up. This list covers neighborhoods in Omaha west of 72nd Street, Gretna, and the Elkhorn area of Nebraska.
Tree pick-up dates are: December 29th, 30th, and 31st 2012 and January 1st, 5th , 6th, 12th and 13th of 2013. Boy Scouts and adult volunteers will collect trees from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
The drive serves as a recycling/ecological service project. The trees are taken to area drop sites, where they are ground, chipped or used as fish habitat material in area lakes. “This drive is a great experience for the participating Boy Scouts and provides a needed service for the community,” says Troop 282 Scoutmaster John Shores.
The event is sponsored by the Millard Rotary, & Boy Scout Troops 282 and 558.
