Bratislava, 21 March 2023 – The city, the Waste Collection and Disposal company (OLO), the Municipal Enterprise, BUČINA EKO and IKEA have joined forces in a project to collect this year's Christmas trees. In under two months, Bratislava residents deposited approximately 43,000 trees weighing 237 tonnes into the pens, exceeding last year's figures. The trees were converted into chipboard in terms of material and then made into bookcases. 150 items of these recycled bookcases filled with books from KOLO - Bratislava Re-use Centre will be returned to Bratislava.
