Plant Pot with Mud disposal

Hi There,

Looking for advice as to standard way of disposing of 2x plant plots with mud (including the brown clay pot). Is there any special bags / stickers to use.
I live in Basel land.

Thanks in advance

Why not offer them for free to EF members here - I'm sure somebody would love them.

You did not mention the size. if they are Large, you could either advertise on EF or place outside with a Free sticker in French/German.
We had a live plant in a large pot had no room for, so that is what we did and was gone in a day or 2 (ideal for someone's rooftop or balcony). Were able to place outside, but it was still within the bounds of the property, so no problems with it being on the public road.
I dont see any problems with putting mud into normal rubbish sack.

Thanks.
The pot is about 30cm tall (2x palm trees; trees no more).
I want to dispose the pot with mud together (separating would be messy for the condition it is now).
Is it allowed to dispose clay brown pot in normal rubbish bag?

I can think of no reason why not. the only restrictions on the bags is the weight, ie the amount of litres.

What else do people do with eg chipped or broken crockery, if I was disposing of them, i would ensure they were wrapped well in the rubbish bin, so the collection people dont cut their hands.

slightly off topic, I use empty flour, sugar, rice packets etc to put in my vegetable & fruit peelings so that my bin does not smell too much for the once weekly collection.

Re: Plant Pot with Mud disposal

Volume is definitely the same as weight

We are taxed by weight, not volume - makes a big difference as to how you deal with things. We have to open the large Mollocks bins with a sort of credit card with our account- the refuse is then weighed and registered, then we close the lid and the bag drops down. Broken pottery, eg inert materials, are put in a special bin at the Commune/gemeinde tip.

As said, if the pots are in a good condition, offer them here for free. Soil (earth, otherwise know as mud in US) you could put carefully around bushes or trees around your area.

Mud is wet dirt in the US.

Odile, thanks for your middle paragragh, I must look out for that bin, next time I am at the tip/ recycling area.

OP if you choose to advertise the Pots for free in EF, you do it at the Marketplace heading, be sure to put Basel in your heading & in the description, let people know where about in Basel.

good luck
