Frequently asked questions & answers

Unfortunately we can't offer our service in whole Switzerland yet, but we are constantly expanding our area. You can get an insight into our current availability area using the map at Pick Up.

Grundsätzlich alles was trocken ist und sich für Recycling eignet. Weitere Einzelheiten findest Du in unserer overview oder ruf uns an.

An existing subscription can be changed at any time - e.g. if you need more pickups. It is best to contact us by phone at +41 44 523 61 51 or send us a message.

Es gibt verschiedene Abonnements und Laufzeiten. Am besten kontaktierst Du uns telefonisch. You'll have to send us a written cancellation which is possible at any time and will end after your active subscription. 
Telefonisch erreichst Du uns unter der Nummer +41 44 523 61 51

Your subscription can be suspended at any time. A collection that is not required can be canceled free of charge up to 24 hours before the pick-up. If you need an alternative pick-up date, just give us a call at +41 44 523 61 51

The subscription can be paused at any time. Just give us a call at +41 44 523 61 51

With the bags you'll get a pink sticker.. Label the sticker for supplies, stick it on a full bag and the driver will put a new roll in your mailbox. Or simply give us a call.

We'll send you a Invoice . You can pay the bill via online banking or at any post office. 

The materials you provide us are delivered to our recycling partners who carefully sort by hand.

As member of Swiss Plastic Recyclers we ensure that plastic waste is reused efficiently and sensibly. 

Approx. 80% of all materials in the bags can be recycled.

Yes - in every detail. This can be clearly seen in the example of a yoghurt mug: the aluminum lid, plastic mug and cardboard sleeve are separated manually. There are no machines for this in Switzerland yet.

As a result, we also offer fair-paid work to people who can hardly find employment in other sectors.

Unless otherwise discussed, our driver will expect the bags in front of your mailbox. If this is impossible, you can note where you'll deposit them when registering or contact us at any time. 

Yes, that is possible. Send us the numbers to which we should send the SMS. This makes sense if e.g. two partners should be informed, in shared apartments, companies etc.

We treat up to 4 bags per collection as a guide. As long as you don't deviate too much during your subscription period, there is no surcharge. If you're using your bags too quickly, we may charge CHF 2.90 including VAT for each additional bag.

Special pick-up can also be arranged after prior consultation. Without consultation, anything that is not in our bags will not be taken away.

If you are unsure just aks us. We're glad to help you. Voluminous and light materials can according to arrangement be put to the bags.

Special pick-ups can be arranged for bulky goods and other items.


Seit rund 3 Jahren bin ich Kundin. WeRecycle hat mich immer sehr zuverlässig bedient und am Telefon freundlich und hilfsbereit Auskunft gegeben. 2 zusätzlich abgegebene Säcke nach dem Zügeln waren kein Problem.

Wir arbeiten seit Sommer 2018 mit WeRecycle zusammen und haben klar weniger Müll, das ist sehr positiv. Am meisten sensibilisiert sind wir auf Plastik-Abfall, dabei gilt es am meisten anzupacken aus unserer Sicht.
Leider darf ich aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nicht mehr Autofahren. Dank WeRecycle spare ich mir das schleppen und den Weg zu den Sammelstellen. Meine gewonnene Freizeit nutze ich lieber zum Wandern.
