And already the atmospheric Christmas season is over again. In numerous parlours, the Christmas trees are already being removed, as it is not uncommon for the little trees to leave more needles on the floor than they still have on their branches. So it is time again for the annual Christmas tree disposal. The FES Frankfurter Entsorgungs- und Service GmbH offers two options for this again this year.
Option 1: You dispose of your Christmas tree as before during the month of January either via the brown organic waste bin, the grey residual waste bin or with the street cleaning. The prerequisite is that you remove all ornaments and tinsel from the tree and trim it to pieces of no more than one metre.
Option 2: You use the collection tour, which is being offered for the sixth time and is now well-established, with fixed dates in the individual districts. This involves a special vehicle between Thursday, January 7, and Wednesday, January 27, that collects only Christmas trees. You simply place the trees on the collection day at the property line - i.e. easily accessible and clearly visible. These trees should also be decorated and shortened to pieces of no more than 1 meter.

Please note: The border between Sachsenhausen-South and -North runs along Offenbacher and Mörfelder Landstraße. Mörfelder Landstraße: even house numbers to Sachsenhausen-North, odd house numbers to Sachsenhausen-South. Offenbacher Landstraße: even house numbers to Sachsenhausen-South, odd house numbers to Sachsenhausen-North.
There are no separate dates in the Bahnhofsviertel, the old town and the city centre, because there the street cleaning is in daily use and takes away the Christmas trees.
Of course, Christmas trees can also be dropped off free of charge at RMB Rhein-Main Biokompost GmbH in Osthafen or as part of the car boot service at the FES recycling centres.
FES expects the combination of both options to result in faster removal of the estimated 80,000 Christmas trees, about three-quarters of which are composted. Still, it remains a logistical challenge. FES asks for your understanding if trees lying around are visible in the cityscape for a few days.
