Thanks to the hard work of local Boy Scout troops, the residents of Lacey don’t have to worry about disposing of their Christmas trees after the holidays. Now in its seventh year, the Scout’s “Tree Round-Up” service project provides curbside pickup of trees in Lacey city limits.
If you live within Lacey city limits, Boy Scout troops 222 and 101 will pick up trees Saturday, January 5, 2019, beginning at 8 a.m. The tree will be recycled thanks to the support of LeMay/Pacific Disposal, Asplundh Tree Service, and Thurston County Solid Waste. Please remove ALL decorations. Trees with ornaments, lights, tinsel, stands, and nails will not be accepted as they cannot be composted.
You can make a donation to the Boy Scouts for this service, however, please do not place donations on the tree (for security reasons). Donations accepted here: www.troop222wa.org For more information, please call John, (360) 888-5215.
If you live outside Lacey city limits, you can take your tree to the Thurston County Waste and Recovery Center at 2420 Hogum Bay Road NE in Lacey, December 26, 2018 – January 13, 2019 (except New Year’s day) for no charge. Subscribers to Pacific Disposal’s yard debris pick-up service should cut their tree into 3-foot sections and place it in or next to their yard waste container on their normal collection day.
Apartment and mobile home residents should check with their managers for locations to place trees. Not sure if you live within Lacey city limits? Check your address on Lacey’s zoning map, here.
