Re: Moving...removal or disposal or donating or sale of items

You make a list, possibly with pictures, and publish it on EF with "Free Stuff" in the title.

You call or visit the nearby Brockenhaüser and ask them if they want anything,

You take the rest to the dump,

Are you also able to buy the voucher things from super-markets and leave unwanted stuff in your disposal area near to your apartment? Something like 9 Chfs per 5 kilo?

Also try to see if there is an HIOB store near you. They will take all sorts of items and are usually happy to come out with a vehicle to collect from you. Website is www.hiob.ch and you can check there for a store near you.

If you want to donate, you can contact CSP (http://www.csp.ch/). They have offices in different cities.

Hope it helps!

Re: Want to dispose off my crockery

Go to www.hiob.ch to find their nearest store. They take all kinds of things including crockery. If you have a lot they may even pick it up from you if you ask nicely.
