That Christmas tree did a fine job again and might still look pretty sharp today, but soon you'll be ready to pull off those ornaments and drag that parched bush out of the house.
How would you like to help out San Marin High School's Safe & Sober Grad Night in the process? The annual Christmas tree recycling program is the biggest fundraiser for the year-end Safe Grad Night party for the senior class at Rolling Hills Club.
You can drop off your tree in the high school's northeast parking lot (the one closest to San Marin Drive and the football field) on Dec. 29, Dec. 30, Dec. 31, Jan. 1, Jan. 5 and Jan. 6. Green trees can be dropped off with a $5 donation or $10 for flocked trees.
Pick-up service is available by reservation only by calling 899-9223 or emailing to SMtreerecycle@gmail.com. Green trees can be picked up for a $10 donation and flocked trees for $25.
Truck drivers and recycling volunteers are needed. If you can spare a few hours in the mornings on any of those dates, you can help by picking up trees from nearby customers who've requested pick-up service. The tree recycling program especially relies on the parents of senior class students to step up because the amount of money raised determines the cost per student for Safe & Sober Grad Night.
