Recycle / throw away a scooter

Hello everyone, I want to throw away / recycle a scooter (with its original box) in Basel. Could you please advise how to handle it? Should I use the sticker "Sperrgut" and place it outside my building?

If anyone is interested in a second-hand scooter, I am happy to give it to you! It is a gift from a friend but I've never used it!

I look forward to hearing from you although it seems to be a trivial issue.
Thank you very much!!

Hi JackieH, thanks for your suggestions! I tried to upload the photos but it was not successful.
This is the details of the scooter that I found on the internet:https://www.aldi-suisse.ch/fr/servic...8827627831297/

Looks great- would love it for when my grandson visits- but I am too far.

Hopefully it will be great for someone here.

Re: Recycle / throw away a scooter

Put a note up in the foyer of your building (there might be a noticeboard you could pin it to), offering it to a neighbour.

Or put a notice on the Offers board in your local Migros or Coop; cards to write on are available from the customer service desk and advertising is free.

Re: Recycle / throw away a scooter

Either put it on Ricardo for whatever someone will pay, or put it outside or in the foyer with a note "gratis zum Mitnehmen" and someone will probably take it (without the box, which you can just recycle).

Re: Recycle / throw away a scooter

Or bring it to a local Brockenhaus. More 3D trouble than ricardo.ch but you‘d get to see the place. There are always surprises in store there.

In principle a good idea, but I assume they're all closed at the moment.

Re: Recycle / throw away a scooter

Put a photo of it on Facebook marketplace and exchange it for some greenbacks.
(or rather, red/yellow-backs, since we are in CH)
