Christmas Tree Disposal Zug

Hi - I am new to Zug - I need to dispose of my Christmas Tree. Can I chop it up and put it in the compost or is there another way?

Thanks

mike

I see people just leaving it next to the communal green bins when on the day the green bin man is supposed to come. Don't think you need to chop it up in anyway unless you got a gigantic one!

There are those metal containers where you put the garbage. But the Tree you put next to the compost bin (the green one)



Not inside, next to it..

More info: e Entsorgungsmerkblatt 2017 (Eng)

On the original german version you can check when it will be collected (last page with the G symbol)

Re: Christmas Tree Disposal Zug

Also to note, every building and housing area can different.

For example my last apartment did not have a designated communal disposal area. We just had to bring down our waste on the morning of the pick up and set it by the road.
My apartment now has a designated communal disposal area with green bins, trash bins, and recycling.

If you are unsure how it works in your building, ask a neighbor, your Hauswart, or call your landlord.
