4.) Garbage collection

Volume principle (taxed garbage bags)
Except for the GlattBach development (Glattpark subdivision), only official taxed bags can be used for household garbage collection: they are black with a purple sunshine logo and marked with “IGKSG Zürcher Unterland”. They can be obtained from the cashier in most grocery stores. The special stickers for bulky items cannot be used for garbage bags. Household garbage collection is on Thursdays .

Weight principle (magnetic charge cards for the GlattBach development)
Household garbage for the GlattBach development, Earhart-Strasse, 8152 Glattpark (Opfikon) is disposed of in the press container by using a magnetic charge card. The garbage that is thrown in is precisely weighed and immediately debited from the card (which is why taxed garbage bags do not need to be used). The magnetic charge cards are issued by the landlord and can be loaded with credit at the machine next to the container. If lost, the card can be replaced at a cost of CHF 20.- at the Opfikon city hall. Credit on lost cards cannot be refunded.

Bulky items
Special bulky item stickers (with the sunshine logo) must be used for the collection of combustible bulky items. Bulky item stickers are sold in the Opfikon city hall (at the city treasury or “Stadtkasse”) and at the main collection center "im Rohr". Non-flammable bulky items made of metal, stone, etc. must be disposed of at the main collection center.
