This question refers to the different ways of eliminating waste produced at home daily.
Garbage truck: this service can be provided with a garbage truck or compacting truck, property of the canton municipality or by a private garbage collector whenever this service is contracted and paid for by the municipality. This does not include private services contracted directly by the people of the community.
Thrown in a hole or buried: this option should be assigned when the garbage is deposited in a hole with the objective of remaining outside the dwelling. In general when the hole fills with garbage, this is covered, and the buried garbage burned.
Burned: when the garbage is deposited in a hole or recipient with the objective of burning it in order to eliminate it. If it is burned and then buried, consider this to be burned.
Thrown in a vacant lot: when the garbage is deposited in a lot or unoccupied terrain, whenever this is close to the dwelling.
Thrown in a river, gorge, or sea: when the garbage is thrown or deposited in some river, gorge, or sea, whenever this is close to the dwelling.
Other: this includes for example, directly depositing garbage in the garbage cans or municipal dumps, taking to waste centers, or when the garbage is collected by a private contracted service and paid directly by the people of the community.
