Using luzern garbage bags in zurich

Hi All

I just moved from Luzern to Zurich and I had a bundle of garbage bags left which I brought over. Can I use them in Zurich? Does anyone have any experience in using garbage bags of a different canton? Will it be taken as a gross negligence or as a minor issue ?

Thank you

Far as I know you can't use them. Could end up with a fine or worse if you do. Can't you give them to your old neighbours back in Lucerne?

It will be treated in the same way as any other illegal dumping. How seriously any given Gemeinde deals with it will depend on them, but the fact that you're using bags from another area will be viewed in exactly the same way as if they were simple black (or any other colour) rubbish bags.

You can use them where I live, so long as you put a sticker on them

Re: Using luzern garbage bags in zurich

Due to cantonal pride they won’t accept LU’s refuse bags in ZH and vice-versa. Took so many productive years of building confederation CH to keep it that way

Nope, the fee on the bag pays for the service you receive. If you want Zurich EWZ to dispose of your garbage, you have to pay Zurich EWZ = buy their bag.

Zug bag is not accepted by Zurich authorities. I guess will be the same with all others.

In some places the trash tax is paid through stickers and you use the bag you like.
In Zurich there are no stickers, you must buy directly the printed bags.

@robot: you could give them away to someone living in Luzern and working in Zurich. I got some with the apartment when I moved in
