On the 2nd day of 2011, we turn our thoughts to…2010 Christmas trees.
If you face the annual dilemma — what to do with that once beautiful, now dying and needle-dropping symbol of last month’s holiday cheer — help is at hand.
This Saturday (Jan. 8), Boy Scout Troop 39 will pick up your tree. They don’t say what they’ll do with it after hauling it away, but who cares?
To register for this much-needed service, click here. The tree should be placed by your mailbox by 6:30 Saturday morning.
Tape an envelope with a check (“Boy Scout Troop 39” ) to your front door.
Cash is okay too. The Scouts are definitely walking the talk of their 1st law: trust.
The suggested donation is $15 per tree, though I’m sure the scouts would not refuse higher amounts.
The Boy Scouts are well known for helping little old ladies across streets. In Westport, we thank them for helping little old ladies — and strapping young men — dispose of big old Christmas trees.
