Re: where to dispose of soil in basel

I would suggest burying it.



or more seriously, page 34 of the following pdf has the information you need, or at least phone numbers which put you in touch with someone who will point you further in the right direction.

Re: where to dispose of soil in basel

Hi, I have the same problem of Rackiec but I am in Zurich: any clue about how to dispose of -small amounts of- soil? Thanks!


P.s. The pdf posted by nqlnl does not work.

How much soil are you talking?
I could probably take it off your hands for nothing

Thanks Dodgyken. I guess the quantity would fit in a 35 lt bag, it's just from a few pots we have on the balcony. Let me know

In that case just put it a 35l bag and throw it in the big.

If you had lots of soil I'd have been interested

Well, that's good advice in pretty much any situation.

Or if you really want it to go into a garden you can bring it to Basel and I'll make good use of it

Re: where to dispose of soil in basel

Garden Waste= Will be collected from your home, needs a "vignette",do not use plastic bags to collect it, they will not be taken from the city.


http://www.tiefbauamt.bs.ch/entsorgu...lkalender.html


Soil= Small amounts will be taken by the recyclingparks,
http://www.aue.bs.ch/abfaelle/hausha...lingparks.html

Huge amounts will be taken by the" muldenzentrale" or by a company who is specialized in gardening/landscaping.
