With inspiration from the awesome people at Modacity in Vancouver, Norte! is excited to offer bike-powered delivery of your Christmas tree to Traverse City’s recycling drop-off site. Because recycling your tree by bicycle might just be the most awesome thing ever:
- it’s easy. Just fill out the form below.
- it’s convenient. One less trip for you.
- it’s less wasteful. Turning your tree into mulch rocks!
- it supports Norte!. Yay for kids on bikes in Traverse City.
Here’s How it Works:
- Commit to making a donation – big or small – and help us inspire Traverse City youth through bicycles. With your support, Norte! will:
- invest in bike tools, parts and supplies for El Barrio Bike Fix, our upcoming after school learn-to-wrench program at Eastern Elementary
- host The Bike Mas Project, our experienced-based after school empowerment program at Eastern and Traverse Heights Elementary this spring
- purchase more balance bikes for the Estrellas del Norte!, our learn-to-ride program this summer
- grow our Kids Bike Library to make sure that every awesome kid can ride an awesome bike no matter their family’s financial resources
- Sign up HERE to schedule your pick-up.
- A Norte! volunteer will pedal your Christmas tree to Hull Park using 8ft, heavy duty bike trailers loaned to us by our friends at Carter’s Compost.
- Give yourself a pat on the back for supporting kids on bikes in Traverse City and recycling your tree into mulch and erosion control for City parks and Brown Bridge Quiet Area.
- Pick-ups available in Oak Park, Boardman, Traverse Heights, Central and Old Town neighborhoods only.
- Pick-ups from 12/28/15 until 1/17/16 .
- Donations can be made online HERE, via check to “Norte!” left with your tree or sent to to PO Box, 781, TC, MI, 49685.
