Boy Scouts are supposed to do a “good turn” daily.
It’s hard to imagine a better one than what they’ve got planned for Saturday, January 10.
Troop 39 of Westport will pick up your Christmas tree. That once beautiful, now dying and needle-dropping symbol of last month’s holiday cheer can be disposed of with one simple mouse click.
To register for this much-needed service, click here. Then place your tree by your mailbox by 6:30 a.m. on Saturday — yeah, you do have to move it that far yourself — and tape an envelope with your donation to your front door.
The suggested donation is $20 per tree. I’m sure the scouts would not refuse higher amounts.
The Boy Scouts are well known for “good turns” like helping little old ladies across streets. Bush league. In Westport, they help little old ladies — and strapping young men — dispose of big old Christmas trees.
