The idea of recycling things is not using bags
Or, indeed using bags...

Recycling is not viewed here as virtuous, rather a way to save money (on your household rubbish collection).
That depends on whom you ask.

Re: Using another town's dechette

Please ready the firing squad.

I do this all the time, as the other place has better opening times and also collects cartons, mine does not. The upside is that I do it so often that I'm a regular there and no one would ever suspect me.

Ours are free and unlimited in quantity, included in the yearly charge.

Are you sure that you are not allowed to use it? Is the school so far away from your residence?

My local dechet is shared with 5 villages, there's another about 1km away that's shared with a different bunch of villages. They both open on different days.

The "guards" at our place are quite logical, they are not gonna demand to see your card if you come with a bag of paper.. But if you come in van with a plate from another canton they won't let you in.
I live in another of the 5 villages. The déchetterie is a serious loss-maker and loses money on every bottle, piece of paper, cardboard box etc. that is deposited there. Each resident pays a supplement to cover the losses. Please put your stuff in your own déchetterie. Thank you.

Re: Using another town's dechette

I could dig out the figures from our Council budget- it is indeed very expensive for them to deal with rubbish - and at the end of the day, WE pay for it.

The average Zürcher causes waste management costs in the region of 85 CHF annually. Of course costs vary but that shouldn't be by all that much.

A family from canton Zurich staying in a holiday flat in Ticino can use the local recycling/refuse point.
It would be utterly absurd for them to have to literally save up three weeks worth of stinking rubbish in the summer heat to take it back to their own town. There is also the public hygiene aspect of the matter to consider.
No they can't use them. However for all normal household waste there are plenty of places close by where the rubbish can be put. For oversized items you have to go to the dump and for that you need a card issued by the commune. I know from experience. Besides it's unlikely a tourist would have oversized rubbish such as old cookers etc.

That is because the owner of the holiday home pays garbage tax for it.

Only if the tax is per dwelling. Not if it is per registered resident. Holiday flats often have no person registered as resident. The way it is charged varies from place to place.

I was under the impression that every municipality (even in Ticino) has its own rules and rates concerning refuse collection.

Yes, but they are all similar since the first of the year.

The only difference is in the yearly taxes and the bag prices.

Why should they be identical?

The rules are still the same.
