Sammamish Boy Scout troops will be recycling Christmas trees on Saturday, Jan. 3. This will be our 30th year of recycling trees for Sammamish and Issaquah Highlands residents! Last year over 200 Scouts participated, and 3500 Christmas trees are estimated to have been recycled.

Trees will be picked up curbside starting at 8 a.m. The suggested donation is $15-$30 per tree. Donations may be attached on the tree inside a plastic sandwich bag.

The Scout Tree Drive is the primary fundraiser for 6 troops on the Sammamish plateau. All donations fund Scouting programs here in Sammamish. Donations from residents are a crucial part of the Boy Scouts ability to fund a quality program for Sammamish youth.
