Put it in your cellar/attic room and wait for the next paper throw-out day. That's what I do. Or find a very large apartment complex and see if they have a big bin for paper waste and throw it in there at night, when no one is looking.

There's a facility where you can set up SMS alerts for paper, cardboard, etc., collections so you know a day before.

Not sure what the link would be in Basel but I'm sure if you look up "Entsorgung" on the Basel City website you'll find it.

I suppose you could make a lot of paper boats and send them down the Rhine, when the cops become agitated tell em it is art and you want to express yourself this way.

Hmm I actually wonder if that would work..

Re: Basel - does somebody know someplace where I can throw paper???

There's a recycling dump at the end of the number 11 (?) tram at the St Louis border near Novartis.

Instead of crossing into France, walk left as you get off the tram -past the border station which should be on your righ - and it is 200 m on the right hand-side. Just before the road dips down under the tram tracks. Recycling "free" things (e.g. paper, cardboard, tins, PET etc) has no charge, but you have to pay a small fee for the rest (e.g. furniture).

Become famous and then sell them at Sotheby's.

Some illegible scrawls by Einstein recently fetched several million.

Instead of crossing into France,
Alternatively, continue to the border and throw it over. The French would never notice the difference.

A very handy service for those in Basel.

For the OP (in Muttenz) your local website has the dates for the rest of year and probably worth storing as reminders in your calender/handy/etc:

http://www.muttenz.ch/de/verwaltung/abfall/abfalldaten/

Infact most www.<insert-swiss-town>.ch websites have this information, just search for "abfall" or local language equivalent.

So... try checking to see if there is a www.binningen.ch, perhaps the answer you seek will be there.

(Actually, if you click the link, you'll see there is - which I wasn't aware before. )

I dunno quite how it happened .. but I`m now actually enjoying the warped sense of humour on this forum. I get to laugh out loud to myself.

I`d like a place where I can throw bottles.... Instead of just pushing them thru those little flaps in a container.

Update your profile then. Oh, and hi. (I'm also in Binningen).

The appropriate link is http://www.binningen.ch/xml_1/intern.../d129/f675.cfm] The date depends on whether you're west plateau or east plateau. The clue is when your neighbours start putting it out - bales of paper start appearing the night before.
