where to take the old Christmas Tree?

Hi

Does anyone know if there is somewhere to correctly dispose of the old tree? In the UK you simply took it back to where you got it and they mulched it up in a machine. When we asked at the Garden Centre about this they thought we were mad! Maybe its just for local collection on the Green Days?

Any tips appreciated.
Beverley

Depending on the area you live, there will a pick-up service ;-)

Search for Christbaumabfuhr, e.g. there is one on the 11th in Adliswil (finally..thank god): http://www.adliswil.ch/xml_1/interne...4/d732/f77.cfm

As a rule of thumb, it's typically the first working day after 12th night (5 January), as that's when most people take their tree down.
