With the bags you get a pink sticker.For replenishment, stick it on a full bag and the driver will put a roll in your mailbox or call us.

We send you an invoice by mail. You can pay conveniently via online banking or at the post office counter. 

The materials you provide are delivered to our recycling partners and carefully sorted by hand..

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

Currently about 80% of the materials in the bags can be recycled.

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

We thus offer fairly paid work to people who can hardly find employment in other industries.

If not otherwise agreed with us, our driver will wait your the bags in front of the mailbox. If this is not possible for you, you can make a note of this when you register or contact us at any time. 

Yes, this is possible. Send us the numbers to which you would like us to send an SMS reminder. This makes sense if, for example, two partners are to be informed, for shared flats, companies etc.

We treat up to 4 bags per pickup as a guideline. As long as you do not deviate from this limit during your pickup period, there is no extra charge. If you regularly need more bags, you can always order additional bags at CHF 2.90 incl. VAT.

Special collections can also be arranged after prior consultation. Without consultation, anything that is not in our bags will not be taken along.

If you are unsure, please contact us briefly. Voluminous and light materials can be placed with the bags by appointment .

Special collections for bulky goods and various other items can be arranged on request.

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.
