As for the garbage bag, I'm assuming you are given a 35l garbage bag. This is a designated disposal bag used only in a designated commune or municipality. It is taxed so it cost a bit more than an ordinary garbage bag. Glasses, alumnium, paper, carton and PET bottles are recyclable materials and should go in separate recycle bins. Recycling is free by the way. All other household waste are disposed off in the designated garbage bag. Based on personal experience, depending on the size of your household, a 35l garbage bag should lasts you from a few days to a week.
The waste disposal system in Switzerland works based on the principle of less waste, pay less. The more you recycle, the less trash you have and you'll minimise the need (and therefore pay less) for garbage bags.
Hope this helps.
