Last year, City added a drop-off at Sue Murray Pool in Deutschtown and Brian O’Neill, myself and several volunteers drove around in Becky Coger’s pick-up truck collecting trees and dropping them off for recycling. Interest was strong and the City has greatly expanded the program to cover the whole City!

And Northside gets a new drop-off at Jack Stack Pool.

Trees are mulched instead of going to landfill. Folks will have to take the trees to the drop-off points – Brian and I are not available this year for curbside pick-ups – but the two locations are reasonably convenient. In the East End, a Girl Scout Troop does curbside pick-ups, so if anyone knows any volunteers who want to pick up that job, lemme know!
