Disposing of your live Christmas tree may create a quandary for some. Fortunately, there is more than 1 option here in Ferndale.
A popular option requires only placing your tree at the curb by 8am on Saturday, January 4th, where it will be picked up by the Ferndale Cub Scout Pack 4026 and hauled away to be recycled into mulch. Trees need to be bare of all decorations. Wreaths and other yard debris will not be picked up.
This is an annual community service project and offered for free in neighborhoods west of I-5 within Ferndale city limits. You can support the Cub Scouts efforts by mailing a donation using the envelope they leave behind. You are asked not to attach donations to the tree.
If that isn’t an option where you live, SSC FoodPlus! subscribers can place their tree inside the SSC provided Toter® (with the lid closed) at no extra charge. If the Toter is full, place the tree out next to it and you will be charged $6 per tree up to 8′ tall.
If you are not a SSC FoodPlus! subscriber, contact SSC (360-734-3940) to schedule curbside pickup, also for $6 per tree up to 8′ tall. Pickup must be arranged in advance by calling SSC.
Trees left curbside for the Scouts or SSC to pickup should have all decorations, wires, etc. removed.
