Welcome to another edition of the SwissPats’ How-To Series. In this episode, Carrie Aikman explains how Switzerland's trash and recycling programs work.
Aikman hails from the United States,
holds a BA in English, and is also a LEED AP. She is happy to
finally be putting her degree in Creative Writing to good use as
the Chief Storyteller at the Hub, as well as writing segments on
sustainability for The English Show on RadioX. She loves nature,
art, furniture-making, traveling, reading, karaoke, every margarita
ever made, and all things eco. And she truly believes that each of
us has the power to make a difference.
Unlike our typical show that features a guest or our first-of-the-month What's Happening, our How-To Series is here to help those who are new to Switzerland or even those who have lived here for a long time. Hey, you might’ve forgotten what it was like when you first got here and didn’t know anything.
In our How-To Series, we have sought out those in the known to help you navigate your life here in Switzerland. From getting the train, to taking out your garbage, there are rules, regulations and guidelines that we all need to follow.
A lot of information is out there, but we wanted to bring it to you in a short, bite-sized podcast. Maybe you already have this stuff sorted out, but if you see a newcomer to Switzerland, send them our way and hopefully we can help make that transition to Swiss life a little easier.
