In Cureghem, as well as in cities everywhere all over the world, the city has planted trees in the streets, hoping that they cool down the air, beautify the city, offer space for rests in the shadow and serve as a small habitat for insects and birds. Also, pretty much everywhere in the world these trees suffer from pollution, sealed surfaces and a lack of rainwater. In Cureghem though, another factor comes in, the factor of garbage. Due to the lack of an efficient waste disposal system and space, the street trees are often used for waste disposal. This of course leads to creative solutions from the citizens of Cureghem.
