Realtors pick up Christmas trees

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- The holidays are gone and your Christmas trees are probably a little droopy. That's why one Grand Valley group wants to help people with the hassle of throwing out their tree.

This was the 4th year The Christi Reece Group, a group of local realtors, went around picking up Christmas trees in neighborhoods all over the community.

They got more than a dozen trees on Saturday. They say they want to add more days to their pickup next year because of the demand. The group says they are happy to give back to the community and help out the environment.

"A lot of people will just end up leaving their tree on the side of their house for months and months. I know that's happened to us before. So, it not only gets it out of the way but we don't want to put it in the landfill, we want to compost it and do what we can to help the environment as well," said Christi Reece, Team Leader of The Christi Reece Group.

The group encourages people to give them a call and add neighborhoods to their route for next year. Their number is 970-589-7700.
