Cardboard/Carton recycling for city Zurich

I walked out the door this am, and said to myself 'Aye Karamba!'

All the neighbours had their cardboard out overnight, and somehow I missed it. I came home this evening, and sure enough, the sidewalk was back to it's normal self.

I have a pile of cardboard (&paper) for several months now and I need to get rid of them.I know a place where I can take 'em all and burn them (nromally used for sausagge grilling for the kinderkrippe ), but I prefer to recycle, if possible.

In city zurich (or thereabouts), is there a place where I can take the cardboard and the paper? I'm thinking, the recycling people must them them somewhere....

If such a place is open on saturdays, that's ideal.

TIA!

Regards,

Re: Cardboard/Carton recycling for city Zurich

I used to collect the Carton in a 120 litres plastic bag and take it to IKEA. They accept there Carton/Paper and styrene as well.
I used to forget to pay attention on the collecting days, so this is a working solution for me.

I can put 3 bags into my Mini without any issue, so it is doable.
