Re: Recycling Electronics (Zurich)

The answer was stated above:

Any electronic shop will take old items (migros electronics, fust, interdiscount, media markt etc).

Find the nearest one to you and dump it there.

What is the Advance Recycling Fee for my equipment?

An Advance Recycling Fee (ARF) has been charged on all new electronic and electrical equipment in Switzerland since 1994. It is used for recycling the equipment in line with environmental regulations, for recovery of materials and for appropriate disposal of non-reusable materials and pollutants. SWICO Recycling guarantees that all equipment that reaches its partners will be recycled in line with environmental requirements.

So it is fee-less to dump it.
Is this the case even if the items were not purchased in CH?
