"By burning them with other communal waste, heat and electricity are produced and further distributed to 22,000 households," Humenikova added for TASR.The number of collected and removed Christmas trees increases every year.

While in 2014 it was 84 tonnes of Christmas trees, in 2016 it was nearly 99 tonnes and last year more than 112 tonnes.Apart from leaving it to OLO, people can personally bring their Christmas trees and dispose of them in OLO's collection yard on Stara Ivanska Cesta, which is open from 8:00 to 18:00 every day, except Sundays and holidays.
