Christmas tree collection delayed

Normally Christmas Trees in Oberursel are collected from the roadside on a single day in January.  This year, that day should have been Saturday, 14th January.

However the company that was due to collect them was unable to complete the tour, so in many areas trees are still laying in front of buildings and on the footpaths.

These trees should be collected in the coming days.  If they are not, send an e-mail to

Trees (without decorations) may also be put into the Biotonne or taken to the recycling depot.
