Disposing of a big box of misc items

So we're leaving Switzerland As part of our pre-move cleanup, we ended up with a cardboard box full of misc stuff we don't want anymore - everything from broken electronics to small decorative trinkets to food past its expiration date, etc.

How do we get rid of this? Can I put the box outside with enough sperrgut markers and expect it to be taken away? FWIW, we live in Winterthur.

Re: Disposing of a big box of misc items

for your electronics you can take them to an electronics retailer, such as Inter Discount, and they will take them off you for recycling. I believe, although i could be wrong, that built into the pricing of electronics by retailers is a fee for this recycling service. I have even taken things into Inter Discount with english plugs on them and they have happily taken the pieces off me.
