Hi,

Does anyone know where I can take gas bottles/canisters to be disposed of in Luzern?

Thanks

Re: Gas Bottles - Disposal (Luzern)

The website of the local waste disposal/recycling thingy doesn't seem to cover them:

Folgende Abfallarten können bei jedem Ökihof abgegeben werden
Aluminium, Batterien, Bauschutt, Blechdosen, Bücher, Elektroschrott, Glas, Altholz, Kaffeekapseln aus Aluminium, Karton, Textilien und Schuhe, Leuchtstoffröhren und Sparlampen, Altmetall, Altöl, Papier, PET-Flaschen, Pneus, Sperrgut, Styropor

Do you mean the big Butagaz-type bottles used for gas cookers? These would normally be returned to the shop where you bought them.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, it is those type of big bottles for a gas BBQ. I've read about returning to the place Of purchase, but the BBQ and bottles were left by the previous tenant. I would like to get rid of both the BBQ and bottles.

Re: Gas Bottles - Disposal (Luzern)

Take them to any shop that sells them. You won't get a deposit back on them unless you have the card that they were sold with. But at least it gets them out of your house.

Cheers,
Nick

Alternatively send the previous tenant a bill at SFr1000 / day for rental of storage space for harbouring their junk.

Re: Gas Bottles - Disposal (Luzern)

They only started with the car system about 2 years ago so you might get away with the story that they're old. It's like 30 francs a bottle!

Thank you!

I will try and find a place in Luzern to return them to.

One is full and the other half, so if you also know of anyone that wants them and the BBQ, don't hesitate to pass it on!

👍

Make a big bonfire and chuck 'em on - in a short time, they'll be someone else's problem ..... a couple of streets away.
