Recycling in Thalwil

Hi - anyone know where there is a paper recycling drop off in Thalwil?
I have magazines, newspapers, junk mail, etc.

I live by Starbucks, by train station.

Also - I have a lot of plastic bags that could be recycled if anyone knows where to drop those off as well, I'd be interested. Thanks!

The paper is picked up 1x per month in Thalwil and everything you have mentioned can be bundled and left out the night before. The next paper pick up is June 6th.
I have no idea about the plastic bags but in the Coop next to the recycle centre there is a bin for used bags (I only ever put in paper ones but I see people pulling bags from there so you could ask at the store if you can leave paper ones.)

Re: Recycling in Thalwil

Next paper collection see this. Other rubbish disposal Info is also on the same site.
Please tie the paper together with string; don't use sticky tape, don't put the papers into paper or plastic bags. Envelopes with 'windows' are not 'waste paper' but normal rubbish.
I take plastic bags to our little local shop where they are gratefully accepted. Otherwise, in future take them with you when you go shopping and refuse a new one.

CB1 beat me to it - but please remember the above link too, to give you the rest of the Info you will probably need one day,
