5. Tree Removal from the Boy Scouts

Boy Scout Troop 131 will perform their annual Christmas tree recycling drive as a service project for Wrentham residents only. For a $10 donation, curbside pickup will be on Saturday, January 5th (raindate: Sun., Jan 6th). Please place your donation in an envelope. Seal the envelope and place it around the bottom of the tree with a rubber band. Make checks payable to "Troop 131" and place the tree on the curb near the street before 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 5th, 2013. For safety reasons, they cannot accept trees with tinsel, flocked trees, trees with nails, artificial trees, wreaths with metal shape wires, or trees with any other metal attached. Your donations are a critical part of the ability to provide a quality program, consistent with the high ideals of scouting. The Scouts of Troop 131 thank you for your support.
