Hollister's Boy Scout Troop 436 and San Juan Bautista's Troop 428 will be providing curbside pick-up service for Christmas trees on Jan. 7 and 8. The troops are asking for an $8 donation. All trees will be recycled.
On the pick-up dates, leave your tree visible at the curb by 9 a.m., stripped of all decorations and stands. Trees do not need to be cut in sections. Flocked trees will be accepted. Donations can be left under the doormat.

On the pick-up dates, there will also be drop sites available at Veteran's Memorial Park, and at the San Juan Bautista Scout House.
