Realtor collects Christmas trees

Doug Cuthbert, with Re/Max, will collect Christmas trees at the curb Jan. 2 and 3 for a donation to the food bank.

A Vernon realtor is providing an easy way to get rid of your Christmas tree.

Doug Cuthbert, with Re/Max, will collect Christmas trees at the curb and take them away for disposal Jan. 2 and 3.

All he asks for in return is a donation to the Vernon food bank.

“I started last year with just an e-mail to my clients and raised 150 to 200 pounds of food. I’ve already had a better response this year and have volunteers and trailers lined up,” he said.

“The response I have had from the general public has been incredibly positive. I believe this has the potential to be hugely successful.”

Anyone who wants their tree picked up for recycling can contact 250-550-4203 or
