Discarded Christmas Trees To Be Picked Up


On Saturday, January 6th, North Bend firefighters will be retrieving discarded Christmas trees placed on the side walk in front of homes within the city. This effort is a voluntary fundraiser to benefit several causes in the community. In addition to removing the potential fire hazards of dry Christmas trees, some of the trees are used to enhance fish habitats in local streams. All contributions received are used by the North Bend Volunteer Firefighters Association to help fund their “Kids for Christmas” program. Donations can also be mailed or hand delivered to the Firefighters Association at the North Bend Fire Station, 1880 McPherson Street, across the street from the North Bend Post Office. Trees may also be dropped off in the north-west corner of the fire station’s parking lot.
 
The Coos Bay Fire Department will also be picking up Christmas trees within city limits on January 6th. The Fire Department requests that residents place their trees near the curb before 8:00am. There is no need to call and request removal of trees as the Fire Department will pick up all trees that are placed near the curb. There is no cost for this service, but they do request a canned food donation to be given to local families in need.
