Electrical Sockets and Extensions
Switzerland has its own standard for electrical power plug sockets. You may need to purchase separate adapter plugs to fit any sockets from other countries. The Swiss electrical grid has a voltage of 230V and might not be compatible with power supplies from other countries.
Details about electrical voltages and plugs are available using the following link
Environment, Waste and Recycling
Most waste products are recycled in Switzerland, aluminium and tin cans, old batteries, light bulbs, glass, paper/cardboard, PET bottles, textiles, electrical and electronic equipment.
At the ZHAW PET containers are provided for PET bottles as well as containers for recycling cans and general paper.
Note: In Switzerland household waste disposal is not free. You have to buy specific waste bags that are available in most grocery stores to dispose of your trash. If you do not use these bags the waste will not be collected. Garbage trucks will collect the trash weekly, the day and time depending on your location. For more information about the system in Zürich, see this link. General information about recycling in Switzerland can be found using this link.
