Many Options for Recycling Trees in Clark County

Time to Recycle That Christmas Tree

OK, I admit, with all of the excitement and joy of the season, it's hard to let Christmas go.  But once it's gone - like really, really gone - it's time to get rid of that tree!  As I mentioned in an earlier post, many cities in Clark County offer curbside recycling along with the regular yard debris pickup.  There might be a small additional fee for the service.  Or you can haul the tree to many of the recycling centers listed in the article. 




Camas Boy Scouts Recycle Trees, Raise Money, and Collect Coats

One convenient option we like is to support the local Boy Scouts Troop, which serves the Camas community. They will pick up the tree at your front door, and take them to a recycling yard for you. Scheduled for this Saturday, Jan 3, the tree pick-up is a fund-raising drive (they ask for a $10 donation), but they also use the opportunity to collect coats for the needy.  They will drop off a handy zip-lock bag to attach the check to the tree. Coats should be placed inside waterproof bags and left with the tree.  It's a great way to recycle your tree and help the community at the same time.

For more information about the Boy Scout tree recycling and coat drive, contact Devin LuBean at 206-295-7321.

I love what the Boy Scouts are doing.  What a great idea, and worth every penny of their fee, I would happily pay double.  A

I love the option of having the Camas Boy Scouts pick up your tree for recylcing.  Many people just don't have the vehicle for hauling a dried old tree off in.  Great solutions here.  Mother Earth would be very happy!

Debb, it's well worth paying a little extra for pick up, especially when it's going to a good cause.

The Christmas trees are picked up by the City in our community. We are lucky.

I wish we had a coat pick up.

Debb-I really like that your area does that. $10 is a bargain to get rid of the tree especially if you don't own a truck. It is also great that they combine it with a coat drive. A triple play and a win/win. Doesn't get better than that. I have used Christmas trees in the past as shelter for the birds.

There is a guy in our area who collects Christmas trees for a bonfire he has every year for his wife's birthday.  I plan to call him.  Hope he stil does it.

Few people understand that wood chips are essential for good compost. Grass clippings need wood fiber to speed up and firm up the compost Debb Janes

Debb, I think it's great that the Boy Scouts are able to provide a service and collect coats at the same time. I hope many give more than $10 for the pickup, well worth it when it's going to a great organization.

Hi Debb --  this post should prove most helpful --- if only there was a way to make people take down their artificial trees before July.

Hi Debb - Boy Scouts is a great way to go with tree recycling, and adding in winter coats is a great idea. Their fundraiser here in sprinkler system blow-outs.

Thank you so much for sharing! It is an excellent program that the Camas Boy Scouts are offering! I'll have to find something similar in my area

Debb, recycling  is definitely the way to go especially when they come to pick up the tree curbside.  The Boy Scouts will appreciate the donations for their service.

Debb Janes as hard as I am sure it is, those trees get too dry and become fire hazards.    GREAT post to recycle, and good job to the Boy Scouts for incorporating the coat/monetary collection!

Thanks all, we are going to donate - always do, and we are grateful for the efforts of the Boy Scouts in the Camas Community. I have a bag of old coats for them too.
