Cargo Tram / Deep Fountains

I just learned about Cargo Tram.
I understand I can drop off some "trash" for free there.

I read that it is happening today (Jan 31 2017).

Few questions:
* I have some styrofoam - is that ok to drop off
* Where is Deep fountains?



Here is the text on the website:

Re: Cargo Tram / Deep Fountains

The last time I tried to take general household waste (plastic containers, bubble wrap and Styrofoam),


They said I should be using Zurisacks to dispose of this material.


However they did make an exception for me when I pulled my "Sorry I didn't know face".

"Deep fountains" It's a tram/train/bus stop called Tiefenbrunnen. Sometimes it's a good idea to look at the German website

Re: Cargo Tram / Deep Fountains

There is the E Tram and the Cargo Tram. And you cant bring anything with the car. Well you could but you have to unload it somewhere and bring it by foot.

You can bring most things-even your wife if she's pretty!

I once gave a mass of styrofoam to them. They said nothing. Styrofoam is one of the biggest evils of modern man!!
