[Zurich] Recycling Bike Tires/Tubes

I recently was cleaning out my storage area and realized I have several used bike tires and multiple tubes that are no longer re-useable.

Is there somewhere I can take these to be recycled? As I understand all those Freitag bags are made from old bike tires and such, so I assume there must be somewhere to take them.

They can't be recycled regrettably. You can dispose of them at the Hagenholz. Or give them to the garage shop next time you buy new ones.

Freitag bags are made of truck tarpaulin and similar materials.

Thanks, seems like a waste though. I do remember reading in my Swiss airline magazine that they used bicycle tires but maybe that was when then started out.

Does this still hold true? Is there really nowhere in CH that you can take old bike tires to be recycled?

Places that sell bike tyres will take them. Migros Do It took my old set after I changed my bike tyres
