Re: Garden damage - responsibility?

Considering the disposal of trash is a costly affair in Switzerland, I would think a bit about the motivations of the previous tenant. It was less expensive to give away the trash instead of cleaning. I shared a flat for some years and there was nothing that made people more furious than asking them to take all their property when leaving. People complained about my rudeness for not taking a "gift" (a chair, a plant, a bed frame, etc). I just pointed that getting rid of the trash would cost me X amount of francs, so if someone wanted to leave an object behind, should also leave some money for proper waste disposal.
This. It took us (actually my wife) about 2 months to properly get rid of all the stuff we had acquired but were not taking back with us. This included house plants, electrical items, garden items, etc not to mention trips to various recycling centers for the one off stuff.
