Heave away, Scouts! All photos courtesy Boy Scout Troop 15 and Cub Scout Troop 95.

Time for that very last ritual of the Christmas season: Scouts showing up at your door and hauling away your Christmas tree!

A media representative from Boy Scout Troop 15 and Cub Scout Pack 95 sends us the following info. Be nice and tip your scouts if you can.

Just a heads up to everyone that Boy Scout Troop 15 and Cub Scout Pack 95 will once again be picking up Christmas trees and hauling them to greenwaste for the community. We will be picking up trees in Eureka, Arcata and McKinleyville areas on Saturday December 31 and Saturday January 7th between 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

If you would like to schedule a pickup, you can call or text (707) 273-1997 or email arcatacubscouts@gmail.com with your name, address, phone number and preferred pick up day (12/31 or 1/7). This is a community service project for the Scouts and there is no fixed cost to pick up your tree - donations are accepted and appreciated but are not required. All donations will help fund camping and other outings and summer camp for the Scouts.

Please help spread the word any way you can so we can have a robust pick-up schedule - it’s lots of fun for the Scouts so the more trees the better. Thanks for your support!
