Our first garbage day has come and gone. And I have failed in Swiss Garbage 101.
I put our garbage out on the curb along with the other bags of garbage. In the morning the truck came along and took everyone else's garbage. Our garbage was left sitting there, looking a little dejected.
We received a sticker on the offending garbage explaining why they did not take the garbage. But of course, understanding very little German, I had no idea what it meant.
The landlady explained that I had used the wrong bag. I was confused about which bag to use and went the wrong way.
The garbage is now in our basement storage room, already placed in the correct bag. We'll give it another try next week.
