Give your Christmas tree back to nature

Thanks to friend and community organizer Corinne for this tip on how to recycle your Christmas tree in Paris this year. The city authorities are organizing a pick-up of trees from January 2 to February 1 at 95 collection sites in the city’s parks and gardens. No ornaments or fake snow please – only the bare tree will be accepted. They will be ground up and used to enrich soil in the city’s green spaces. Last year 15,000 trees were recycled this way.

  1. Just to report back: we looked up the parks in the 15th arrondissement where you could drop off your tree. Then we chopped off some of the branches so we could get the tree down the stairs, and Ted took off on foot with it to Dupleix. He found a pile already started with loads of trees dropped off. Then he picked up another tree from a sidewalk nearby and dropped it off, as well.
