The Independence High School Band and Color Guard are setting up a pick-up service for your old Christmas trees. On December 30th and January 6th students will come to your home and take away your tree to be recycled. 

Leave your empty tree on your curb and the students will do the rest. They do request a $10 donation that will go to musical equipment, instrument repairs, and more.
