If you live in Zürich city you can create your full garbage collection calendar ONLINE
Just put in your street name (Strasse) and number (Haus.Nr-Zusatz) pick from the choices that you want to know about (green garbage, garbage, newspapers, cardboard, etc) and it will come up with the results. It is only in german though.
For example at my house they pick up the garbage (Hauskehricht)
"wöchentlich am Donnerstag" weekly on Thursdays.
