WHATCOM ­— Boy Scouts will be doing their yearly used Christmas tree pickup this Saturday, Jan. 4, starting at 9 a.m. Please have your tree out at curbside early and Scouts will pick it up.

The trees are chipped into a useable mulch.

Donations are welcome. If a donation isn’t already left with the tree, the Scout troop will leave an envelope at the door of the house addressed to their particular Post Office box, and a donation can be mailed.

This Christmas tree pickup service will be done in Lynden, Ferndale, Blaine and Bellingham. The troops include Pack 4026 for Ferndale and Pack 4028 for Lynden.
