On Oct. 10, the Orange Board of Selectmen unanimously approved a request from Platt Technical School to conduct a Christmas tree recycling drive, to pick up Christmas trees and recycling them.
When we announced it, we received positive comments from our readers who were anxious to participate.
The Platt Tech Class of 2014, which includes Orange residents, are offering the service.
The collection dates are Jan. 5 and 6; Jan. 12 and 13; and Jan. 19 and 20.
The suggested donation is $15 ($5 less than the $20 mentioned at the Selectmen’s meeting.) All proceeds will go directly to Platt Tech’s class of 2014.
The chips will be deposited in Orange and Milford.
Any Orange resident who would like to pre-purchase a tree pick up may send checks made out to Platt Tech Class of 2014 to Mykal Kuslis — Class of 2014 Advisor, Platt Technical High School, 600 Orange Ave., Milford, CT 06461.
For more information, you may call Kuslis at 203-783-5300, ext. 410 or send an e-mail to Mykal.Kuslis@ct.gov
