Where/how to throw away broken ceramic/porcelain dishes in Basel

Hi all,
I'm living in Basel now, but I'm about to leave Switzerland within this few weeks that's why I cannot match the time with the recycle schedule. I have few broken dishes and some glasses to throw away. I wonder where and how can I throw it away. So far, I know that it's not possible to put in the recycle glass area.

Thanks!

You can wrap them up in paper to prevent injury and put them with your normal household rubbish. You can take them to an recycling depot - there's one at Birsfelden, another at Oberwil/Therwil.

Your local details are here: http://www.aue.bs.ch/abfaelle/hausha...-abfaelle.html

Shame - my community takes it for free at the local depot.

Recycle the broken glasses, and as NotAllThere says, wrap up the broken porcelain in plenty of paper and put inside the rubbish bag.

If it is just a small amount (one mug or dish): In the Bebbi Bag.
No super correct but ...

If it is a bit more than you can put it in a box next to the bebbi bag, put one sticker (Sperrgutvignetten available at Coop, Migros and Drugstores) per 10 kg onto it. Additionaly you have to pre-advice them the day before pick-up day before 12am that there will non-combustible (Unbrennbares) stuff.
