Recycling in Basel--if you missed the monthly pickup

Hi,

I have been living a long time in Basel but only just realised where you can go if you want to recycling things. There is the calendar which tells you when you can leave things out so that they can be recycled but what happens if you have things you want to get rid of during the month.

Well you can go here
http://www.lottner.ch/de/RecyclingparkF.html

which is at Schlachthofstrasse 18 just by the St Louis border.
Der Recyclingpark ist geöffnet:

Montags bis Freitags 14:00 bis 16:30
Samstags 8:00 bis 12:00
Schlachthofstrasse 18 (Nähe St.Louis Grenze)
4013 Basel

I got rid of a load of paper and cardboard at the weekend.

Have fun
Martin

Re: Recycling in Basel--if you missed the monthly pickup

Does anyone know if the recycle centre in Basel will be open this coming Friday and Saturday?

I'm guessing that it will be closed Thursday May 14th.

By the way, the link to the park is http://www.lottner.ch (the link in the earlier post doesn't work anyone).

My abfuhrplan shows that I have garbage collection tomorrow, (normally it's Tuesday/Friday for me), so I imagine they'll be open. Most stores will be too.

Re: Recycling in Basel--if you missed the monthly pickup

Having been to http://www.lottner.ch today, I thought I would share my experience.

To say that it is a recycle centre, may be a bit misleading, as based on my experience, you can pretty much take anything you want there.

The process is as follows:
- Enter the premises at Schlachthofstrasse 18 just by the St Louis border.
- Stop at the small office as you enter to collect a "form".
- Follow the arrows and drive around to the rear of the premises, where you will immediately see piles of rubbish/recycle-materials.
- There will be a member of staff, who will approach you and take from you the form you collected earlier.
- The staff member will then assess what you have in your vehicle/trailer and advise on which piles you can dispose your stuff on.
- He will then write an amount on the form and hand the form back to you.
- You can now happily empty your vehicle of your stuff/s**t
- Once finished, return to your vehicle and return to the front office.
- Hand over the form to the office person and then settle the bill ... please note CASH ONLY!

And that's it.

I had a full estate-car/station-wagon load today, consisting of broken old wooden benches, an old wooden ladder, an old pair of step ladders, some off cuts of insulating material, a bucket full of scrap metal, a broken electric lawn mower and a broken childs ride-on toy and it cost me CHF20 ... not bad value.

One point to note. The opening hours on the website are not correct. As I was in a hurry, I did not write down the exact time, but on a Saturday, they stay open longer than 12:00

I wasn't asked for any ID and no one checked car plate ... well I don't think they did.
