Migros causes dissatisfaction with plastic collection bags

The first attempt went horribly wrong. Two years ago, with much fanfare, Migros announced that it would set up a Switzerland-wide system for plastic recycling. This heralds a “new era in the field of sustainability,” said the retailer proudly. Only a little later, Migros had to stop the project to collect plastic in its branches: the action had not been agreed with the authorities.

Now Migros in Zurich dares to try again. In cooperation with the city of Zurich, a pilot operation for plastic recycling is to be started in four branches in the summer: consumers can buy collection bags there, fill them with plastic waste such as yoghurt cups or meat packaging and take them back to the supermarket. So far there are only collection points in central Switzerland and in the regions of Friborg and Lausanne VD.
