▶️Scouts of Central Oregon picked up hundreds of Christmas trees for recycling

Scouts of Central Oregon were out picking up Christmas trees for recycling over the weekend. And they’ll be doing it again next weekend.

More than 200 trees were already picked up on the first day Saturday. They were back at it on Sunday, too.

The $10 donations from the tree collection and other fundraisers go toward activities and summer camps for the Scouts of Central Oregon. The event not only raises money but is a fun way to help the community.

“It’s just a fun outing for them and it brings a lot of scout spirit,” said Larry Jensen, Scoutmaster of Troop 25.

The Scouts will continue to pick up trees next weekend, January 6-7. Regions the Scouts will be collecting include:

  • Bend
  • La Pine and Sunriver
  • Madras and nearby areas
  • Prineville
  • Redmond

Those living in the Bend City Limits do not need to call ahead to have their tree picked up, the Scouts said. Troops will start at 8 a.m. on collection days and drive through the area. However, they have phone numbers available to call for those with questions.
