Safety & Cleanliness
Safety, order and cleanliness contribute greatly to the high quality of life in the City of Zürich. Environmentally friendly waste disposal and sustainable energy and water supplies are essential factors when in comes to competition with other international locations.
The city's administrational activities create incentives for residents to act in an environmentally conscious, energy-efficient way and to reduce waste accumulation and air and noise pollution. Glass, metal and textiles can be properly disposed of at over 300 collection points, for example, while paper and cardboard are collected and recycled by refuse collectors free of charge.
Zürich is not just a clean city, it is also a safe one, thanks to the trust that locals have in the forces of law and order and which can also be attributed to various measures implemented by the city. Surveys tend to show that the Zürich population enjoys a high feeling of security.
