Recycling and waste disposal
In Zürich (Dübendorf) it is required to purchase official bin bags to dispose of your household trash. You will find some in the apartment. If you stay for a longer time or you use more than the ones provided, you can be purchased them in all supermarkets (they are usually not out on the shelves so make sure to ask at the cashier's desk for "kehrichtsack Dübendorf").
These bags are NOT for recyclables. Compost, PET bottles, glass, carton, paper, aluminium cans, batteries and other toxic waste are disposed of separately to household garbage.
Full bin bags are not picked up from the street. They must be placed in designated neighbourhood containers.
If the garbage is not disposed correctly, it will not be picked up and you will receive a fine of 300.- CHF!!
Compost can be put in the green container next to the grey container. Please make sure not to put any non-compostable material in there!
Glass and aluminium need to be separated and then deposited at local recycling points.
The closest recycling point to the flat is at: Sammelstelle Stadthausparkplatz: https://goo.gl/maps/oaBwvVME6RUoXGxG7
Plastic PET bottles can be dropped off at the large containers in front or inside of supermarkets (Migros or Copp).
Cardboard are picked up for free in front of your house every two weeks.
