Happy New Year to Living in Nyon readers!
If you are in the process of tidying up after the Christmas holidays and you need to throw out different kinds of rubbish/garbage and you are not sure where to take it, look in your mail box for a brown envelope with the words “Déchets 2017” on it.
This envelope has been distributed to all Nyon households. There are two brochures in the envelope, one includes a map showing Nyon divided into two sections – the North Sector and the South Sector. On the map you will see the location of Nyon déchèteries (waste collection points), the eco-points in the different sectors and the location of the déchetèrie for organic produce.
There are also dates for 2017 for the collection of household items that can left outside or in a communal area. Christmas trees will be collected on Wednesday 4th and 11th January 2017.
The second brochure entitled “ABECEDAIRE” has a comprehensive list of what you can throw out and where and which items can be returned to the point of sale.
For example, did you know that ink cartridges, coffee capsules, paints solvents, radios, stereo units and many other items can all be returned to the store that you bought them from for the retailer to recycle?
If you have mistakenly already thrown out the brown envelope containing the recycling information… ! you can view most of the information online here (note, the 2017 brochure is not online yet) but the 2016 is and has most of the information you need, the only difference will be the dates of collection for this year.
If in doubt, the big new recycling centre in Nyon accepts many items, read about this new centre and how it works in a previous Living in Nyon article here
There is also a free help line to call 0800 451 452 if you have any questions on recycling. It is open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 08:30 – 11:30 and 14:00 -16:30.
