Recycling

Retrieval service.

During the first week of January, we help our customers dispose of the Christmas tree. We come to your place with two men strong and dispose of the Christmas tree again, without leaving a trace of needles. Then we make sure that your Christmas tree is completely recycled. If you want to make use of this service, we recommend adding the pickup service directly when ordering the Christmas tree. You can determine the pickup date yourself. If you order the collection service for several Christmas trees in one order, you will automatically receive a discount per tree. This service is for individuals and businesses.

Initiative.

In 2020, we started recycling Christmas trees in cooperation with the City of Amsterdam. In Amsterdam there was a lot of confusion what to do with the Christmas tree in January. With projects / our collection service we are also active in other major cities in the Netherlands and there we saw that it was better organized, especially by the many drop-off points. In the summer of 2020 we had several conversations with the City of Amsterdam to create drop-off points and asked if there could be clarity for Christmas tree owners how to offer your Christmas tree for recycling.

Drop-off points.

Since 2021, the City of Amsterdam has been working with drop-off points again for a long time and the city already looked a lot cleaner. It didn't go completely smoothly yet, but the first step has been taken. In January we were able to reopen our sales point at Stadionplein as a manned drop-off point. We really enjoyed doing it and noticed that the neighborhood found it a great initiative. If you handed in your Christmas tree to us, you received a product made from a Christmas tree. Among other things, we had a bee hotel made from the trunk of the Christmas tree and a room fragrance from our Christmas trees.

Recycling.

Of course, there are an awful lot of Christmas trees in Amsterdam and small initiatives are very nice, but what happens to most of the Christmas trees? As mentioned above, special Christmas tree drop-off points have now been created, when you offer your Christmas tree there, the City of Amsterdam collects them with special Christmas tree trucks. The Christmas tree trucks drive directly to the green recycling facility in the Western Port area. There the Christmas trees are shredded and the wood pieces and needles are separated. The Christmas tree needles are stored for several months, leaving fine compost. The fine compost is used in the spring by local gardeners (for gardens, parks, etc). The wood chips are used for green energy in Amsterdam.
