Basel Mattress Removal

Apologies if this has already been covered as I was having trouble with the search function.

Could anyone advise the best/easiest way to have an old mattress taken away for disposal here in Basel Stadt?

TIA

Re: Basel Mattress Removal

Put it out for garbage pickup with a few stickers on it. That is what we do here in Zurich.

Re: Basel Mattress Removal

For each 10kg, you need 1 CHF4.50 sticker. Also, from here: http://www.aue.bs.ch/dms/aue/downloa...er_english.pdf

"Bulky goods, non-inflammable rubbish and compost must be provided with an adequate number of fee vignettes and deposited clearly visible at the roadside. Collection must be arranged via the cleanliness hotline or the Internet."

Also, check out http://www.aue.bs.ch/abfaelle/haushaltsabfaelle.html.

If you are lucky, the cargo tram will stop in the neighborhood

You should have received vouchers from the city by mail
