Cost of disposing mattress?

Hello! I have someone coming who will deliver a new mattress and pick up and dispose of the old mattress tomorrow (160x200)

I've lost my Enstorgung coupons. Can anyone estimate from experience what it might cost in Zurich city to dump it? This is so that I can prepare an appropriate amount of cash for the delivery guy.

Re: Cost of disposing mattress?

In Zurich the disposing of a mattress will work for pieces up to 40kg

Contact the ERZ:

Or contact the supplier of the new mattress, if he will dispose the old one.

If you can bring the old mattress to the cargo tram, the disposing of the mattress will be free of charge.

The company delivering the new mattress should take the old one away without any coupons - I have no idea what these are…

Re: Cost of disposing mattress?

EDIT: I totally missed the post from Blackbird, sorry. I leave here only the extra information.

No coupons needed for the Cargo-tram, they are only needed for the two big recycling centers and up to 400 kg.

Also, to use the Cargo-tram you must not get there by car (this to both promote public transport and avoid overloading the service).
