Recycling and waste disposal

 

Garbage Disposal

In Argau it is required to purchase official bin bags to dispose of your household trash. They can be purchased in all supermarkets (they are usually not out on the shelves so make sure to ask at the cashier's desk for it).

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.
The container is the grey one, just in fron of the house.

Plastic PET bottles can be dropped off at the large containers in front or inside of supermarkets.
