More X-mas trees recycled this year

During the campaign period of Christmas tree recycling, more than 27,145 Christmas trees were recycled from December 26th, 2009- January 24th, 2010 for the totality of these 95 collection points. This meant an average of 285 x-mas trees per site. The collection point at Clichy--Batignolles in the 17th district had as many as 1202 x-mas trees for recycling.  

 

The number of trees sent for recycling has progressed compared to last year when 24,452 x-mas trees were recycled. The increase in number is an indication of growing awareness of Parisians towards environment. Recycling x-mas trees helps reduce the household waste incineration and also serves to protect the floor of the gardens or even used as compost.
