Re: Plastic bottle Disposal

Recycling plastic PET bottles?
Practically any supermarket has containers or chutes - and perhaps there is a local collection point for recycling and waste (Sammelstelle).

You can search on "recycling" and find out what else can be recycled too; also for Zurich area, "Hagenholz" would assist you in finding the local collection point aka dump

Re: Plastic bottle Disposal

The answer is thus definitely NO. Those bottles would be PET. Check the label. Then there is milk bottles (like Emmi drink yoghurt, these are PE, this name is listed at the bottom rather than on the label). These tend to be more of a pain, as only supermarkets usually have a box for PE bottles.

Hmmm, not sure where you got that from, but it sounds like Gebärungsack, which isn't a real word anyway, but would be "birthing bag" if it were. Certainly not a place for PET bottles I would guess. For reference correct German term is Kehrichtsack - might save you some embarassing moments if you said the Gebärung thing to some German speakers

Hint: This place is called englishforum, and we have people from all the language regions of Switzerland here. Stick to English on the forum - the safer and more universal option around these parts.

I found This post to be very useful. There's more signal buried in the noise of that thread too.
