Recycling and Appliances in in Switzerland
Recycling in Switzerland is a very big thing. There is very little that cannot be recycled. They recycle tin, bottles, plastic, glass, paper, metal etc. Then you need to bring it down to the mall called Zugerland and put the recycables in yourself. The things that cannot be recycled, go into special trash bags that you pay for. Here is a picture of the bags.
Another interesting note is that you need a manual for all appliances here because they are written in German. Our swiss guide was nice enough to print all of the manuals in English that include the range, the oven, the dishwasher, the washing machine, dryer, and espresso machine.
