All decorations must be removed, including tinsel, for safe composting. Call individual sites for additional requirements.

The Rotary Club of Upcountry is offering curbside Christmas tree pickup service from 8 a.m. to noon Jan. 5 for the Paia, Haiku, Makawao, Pukalani and Kula areas.

A $10 donation for each small and medium tree and a minimum donation of $20 per large tree is requested. Funds raised will support the club’s community service projects. Pickup must be scheduled by 4 p.m. Jan. 4 by contacting Zak Pacholl at (503) 550-6666.
