AUBURN — Boy Scout Troop 121 will again pick up Christmas trees in Lewiston and Auburn. While the cities provide locations for free tree disposal, they no longer collect the trees at curbside.

For a minimum donation of $5, the Scouts will pick up Christmas trees on the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 6 and 7. Trees should not be placed curbside until the morning of Jan. 6.

Money raised by the program goes directly to troop scouting activities. Troop 121 was created to help give youth with special physical, mental and emotional challenges the opportunity for success in a safe scouting environment that builds character, encourages citizenship, teaches life skills and develops personal fitness.

To make a pick-up request, send a donation by Jan. 6 to Troop 121, United Methodist Church, 439 Park Ave., Auburn, ME 04210. The troop, in turn, will send a tag to place on the tree when it is put curbside.

FMI: 207-783-0790.

Boy Scout Troop 121 members pictured are Liam Rose, Kyle Mansur, Jacob Clark, Bryce Holt-Giard, Noah Phillips, Jordan Burns and Matthew Kozak. They are preparing the mailing for the sixth annual Christmas Tree Recycling Program.
