Recycle your Christmas tree in Woodinville, Kenmore

tree recycling Cub Scout Pack 422 will hold its annual "Christmas Tree Recycle" fundraiser Jan. 6 at the Woodinville Community United Methodist Church parking lot in downtown Woodinville, across from McDonald's, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
   The trees are recycled into wood chips that are used in the community. Residents are asked not to drop off trees any earlier than this date. A $5 donation is asked, with all proceeds benefiting Pack #422 scouts directly.

   There is no charge for Christmas trees dropped off for recycling by the King County Solid Waste Division in Woodinville Jan. 5-8 and Jan. 12-14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The drop-off site is at an empty lot at the corner of NE North Woodinville Way and 144th Ave. NE. (industrial area).
   Tree bases must be four inches or less in diameter. All metal hooks and tinsel should be removed and flocked trees can not be recycled. No yard wastes or other trees can be accepted. For more information, call 296-4466.

   Yard waste recyclers can have their trees picked up at curbside. Cut the tree in three-foot lengths and place in the yard waste toter or bundle and place on curb. Again, no flocking, metal hooks or tinsel is allowed. For details, call 814-1695.

   North King County residents, landscapers and contractors can now drop their clean yard debris, wood, and Christmas trees (without ornaments, flocking, metal stands or brackets) at Pacific Topsoils in Kenmore for composting. The site is open Mon.-Fri. from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sat. from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Rates depend on the material. Call 485-0701 for prices and location.
