How should I correctly dispose of magnets?

According to information provided by the waste management department of the city of Zurich, you may include small amounts of disused neodymium and ferrite magnets with your regular domestic rubbish collection. Take larger quantities to a scrap metal recycling centre. To be sure, confirm with your local municipality how the disposal is regulated. You also have the option to send magnets purchased from supermagnete.ch back to us.
If you want to do a good deed for the environment and help preserve the so-called rare earth metals (neodymium, dysprosium) contained in these magnets, you can return the magnets purchased from us. We will collect these magnets and periodically send them back to China for recycling. Please send the magnets in a protected package with sufficient postage to the following address:
Murghof Werkstätten
Balierestrasse 17
8500 Frauenfeld

Our popular ferrofluid can be discarded in the same way as engine oil. Small amounts you may have used for your experiments can be soaked up with paper towels and disposed of in the household rubbish.
