How to dispose off a baby stroller / pram?

Hi,

I have a broken pram with me. And as there are rules to dispose off anything and everything here in Switzerland, I was wondering how do I get rid of this pram?

Thanks for your suggestions!

Had the same problem, you can take it to the local incinerator..cost is about 30 chf for uo to 100 kg, so if you have other stuff to burn..

I see people put things out with a trash sticker (in basel land) or in a bebbi sack in basel Stadt. That should work

Check your recycling info leaflet, it has all the collection dates, times or collection points for your local area. If you don't have a copy- your local library or town hall surely will. Mind you I think they send the new ones out about right now?

If it's a metal frame, then take it to the recycling centre. If you can remove the fabric section would be able to place in the metal recycling.

Thanks for all your replies.

I am not sure Zurich has the sticker concept similar to Basel. Regarding the collection day, I think it is always about regular trash and paper etc.

I can remove the fabric part, but the frame still would be mix of metal and plastic parts.

Re: How to dispose off a baby stroller / pram?

A friend of mine lives in Dalikon (near Regansdorf) she said they have a 'dump' thats free, not been there myself but it might be worth you finding out about it.

Re: How to dispose off a baby stroller / pram?

Id the condition good enough, that an EF Member might want to take it over ?

- There is a Recycling yard at Tram 4 End Station Werdhölzli.
I dumped a PC-Screen there a few days ago, and that was free of charge.
They are not open every day, I think it was tuesday and thursday afternoons only, but not sure.

Doc.

Re: How to dispose off a baby stroller / pram?

Your location says 'Zurich'. There are two big recycling/rubbish dumps in Zurich, Hagenholz and Werdholzli.
Zurich residents receive 'Entsorgungs-Coupons' in the post - 4 free coupons per year per household, each allows you to take 100kg of rubbish to the dump for free. Otherwise you pay to use the dumps.
Or just check out when the Cargo-Tram is next collecting in your area. See this site for details for every street in Zurich. www.erz.ch
I had a broken pushchair last year - I took it to Hagenholz with a Coupon (plus lots of other stuff), and it was a very simple process. No need to separate out the plastic/metal, etc!!

you don't need to go there to dump a PC-screen. You can bring it back to any shop selling consumer electronics/PC. Everytime you buy a computer or an electrical device you pay a recycling tax. This tax allowes you to bring it back to any shop for recycling.

Re: How to dispose off a baby stroller / pram?

You can find the schedule for "Sondermüll" in your area here:
http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/ted/de/i...skalender.html

You can get rid of up to 20kg for free, so no need for any sort of sticker, or special bag. Just leave it out in time for the scheduled pick-up day/time. Just the other day, I saw all sorts of pieces of old furniture left out on the sidewalk for this purpose.

Do you need to give out a coupon to use the Cargo-Tram facility? Today is the Cargo-Tram day in my area.

Also, I have those coupons, but in addition to 100 Kg, they have mentioned CHF30 on it. So does it mean I have to pay 30 francs to dispose off 100 kg of refuse?

Thanks!

Hi All,

Thanks for your suggestions. I was able to dispose off the stroller to the Cargo Tram today. Other than the electronic devices, they seemed to accept all kinds of things/furniture. No charges whatsoever.

No, you only pay CHF 30 at the recycling centre if you don't have the coupon. If you present the coupon, it is free. If you have more than 100kg of stuff, there is a charge. They can tell if it weighs more than 100kg because your vehicle is weighed as you drive up to the counter before you enter, and then again just as you are leaving the recycling centre.
Glad you found the Cargo Tram service. Sorry I didn't see your post earlier, but, as you found out, the Cargo Tram is free!

Re: How to dispose off a baby stroller / pram?

You could always drive out to this place in Winti:

http://www.maag-recycling.ch/maag/

There you can dispose of everything at almost no charge. I think the buggie wouldn't cost you more than a buck or two.
