Christmas Tree Pick-up

Christmas Tree Pick-up Residents of The Dalles can easily dispose of their Christmas tree Saturday, Jan. 11, by placing it curbside by 9 a.m. for pick-up by The Dalles Lions Club volunteers and The Dalles Disposal. Volunteers will knock on doors for donations or leave a door hangar. The annual Christmas Tree Pick-up is a fundraiser for Lions Club programs, and all proceeds are used in the community, said organizer Bill Hamilton. The tree pick-up began in 1972, and since 1988 has been supported by The Dalles Disposal, which provides equipment and crews for the fundraiser. Over $75,000 has been raised since the fundraiser began, said Hamilton.
