Help!!! recycling magazines or "altpapier"

Hi, we're moving in about a month and are having trouble getting rid of our old magazines. We tried leaving them out for the garbage truck (properly tied up with twine on a designated "altpapier" pick-up day) but with no success.

We have also tried to but the magazines in brown "altpapier" containers on the street, but that didn't work because they were locked...I imagine this is only for the residents in the immediate area that pay for this service via their taxes or additional rental costs.

Any help or guidance with this would be greatly appreciated!!!

Magazines should actually go with the Altpapier collecting days.

If not try to put them out on the "Karton" (cardboard) collecting day.

Re: Help!!! recycling magazines or "altpapier"

There are some recycling facilities where you can go if you have a car. I'm not sure if there's one close to Luzern though. As far as I could find, there are 2 in Zurich: http://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/ted/de/i...linghoefe.html
and one in Reinach: http://www.recycling-paradies.ch/

Here's a map: http://maps.google.ch/maps?q=recycli...864&gl=ch&z=11

It should be free of charge if you bring stuff (like paper) that is normally free to recycle.
