Every Odesa citizen, who wants to get rid of Christmas tree after the winter holidays end, will be able to do it in a specially allotted place, but not near the trash container, the city’s website reports.

By handing in softwood, the citizens will be able to get candies or other sweets. The number of handed softwoods will not influence the number of sweets.

The promotion will run until February 1, 2020.

Specially allotted places have been allocated in the regions of Odesa. In total, there are 67 places. In particular, they are located in the courtyards of residential buildings and near shopping centers.

The full list of addresses can be found on the city’s website.
