Paint disposal

Does anyone know how we dispose of house paint here? We're in Basel and I can't seem to find anything online but it might be because I'm not searching in German.

Re: Paint disposal

Most towns will have a (or several) central places where you can dispose rubbish. Abfall sammelstellen. You may also be lucky that they will collect (against a fee).

Re: Paint disposal

On this site: http://www.stadtreinigung-bs.ch/page.php?lang=0&sel=15 there are 'garbage-calenders' with a lot of information. You just need to know in which zone you are living.

Re: Paint disposal

Hi,

If you go to this page on the Baselstadt rubbish collection website:

http://www.stadtreinigung-bs.ch/page.php?lang=0&sel=13

You'll find a link to a PDF that lists all the different ways of disposing of rubbish:

http://www.stadtreinigung-bs.ch/data...erbuch2004.pdf

Page 74 of which tells how to dispose of pain (Farbe) - looks like you have to take it to be incinerated.

Cheers,
Nick
