BUHS music dept. offers 'Merry Mulch' program to residents

BRATTLEBORO — The Brattleboro Union High School Music Department is once again offering the Merry Mulch Christmas tree collection service to Brattleboro residents.

This program, in its 26th year, is endorsed by the Vermont Department of Agriculture as well as the New Hampshire/Vermont Christmas Tree Association.

For a $10 donation, members of the band and chorus will transport un-decorated trees from homes to a community garden in West Brattleboro where they will be chipped into mulch to be used by the gardeners.

Since the town does not offer curbside pick-up of trees, the service saves residents the hassle of transporting their own trees.

Two more Saturday pick-up dates are being offered: Jan. 14 and 21.

All pick-ups must be prearranged by calling one of the following numbers at least two days prior to your desired date at 802-258-7020 or 802-275-4403.

Proceeds will benefit travel opportunities for the chorus and band.
