Recycle

Waste disposal and recycling

In Oberengstringen it is required to purchase official bin bags to dispose of your household trash. You will find some in the apartment (they are blue or white). You can purchase them in all supermarkets (they are usually not out on the shelves so make sure to ask at the cashier's desk for "Kehrichtsack").


The containers are located next to the building:

These bags are NOT for recyclables. Compost, PET bottles, glass, cardboard, paper, aluminum cans, batteries, and other toxic waste are disposed of separately from household garbage.

Full bin bags are not picked up from the street. They must be placed in designated neighborhood containers.

If the garbage is not disposed of correctly, it will not be picked up and you will receive a fine of 300.- CHF!

Recycling

Glass and aluminum need to be separated and then deposited at local recycling points. 

The closest recycling point to the flat is at Riedhofstrasse 9, 8049 Zürich: https://goo.gl/maps/5VJ2aESpHU4aNgqm7

 

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

 

Cardboard and paper are picked up for free in front of your house every 2 weeks (see dates here: LINK   – "Karton" is Cardboard, "Papier" is paper). 

Cardboard and paper must be folded correctly:
