Random leftover "trash" when moving

I'm moving out of Switzerland (Adliswil). I already know that I will have a solid amount of random items leftover in my apartment that I will need to dispose of.

I don't have a drivers license, so that complicates things a bit. Is there a comprehensive list of things that I cannot put into normal trash?

Is there a company that I can pay to just pick-up and dispose of everything?

list the items, you might find your "trash" is of use to someone and they may well come and collect it

This is after selling anything of value. Also if someone comes to pick up part of the pile, that doesn't really solve my problem.

It really isn't complicated... it is your responsibility to dispose of your own trash within the rules of your local gemeinde. Either you dispose of it, or leave it there when you move out the rental agency will charge you a LOT of money to organise it themselves as they will use high priced services to do it.

Using some initiative, you can hire a man with a van from this forum (either search the jobs offered section or make a new thread in the jobs wanted section) and pay them to do it for you.

Re: Random leftover "trash" when moving

Part of the pile gone is less of the pile to move. But your choice.

This might be an option: https://www.stadt-zuerich.ch/ted/de/...nd_e-tram.html

A man with a van can take it to the local disposal place where they will charge by the kilo to take it. Problem solved.
