Optimization of Waste Separation
Project supervisors: Mr. Wiemann
This recycling lexicon is intended as a guide for waste separation and disposal. It shows in which bin all recycling material and waste should be placed in. The list is sorted alphabetically. Each bin is identified clearly by a combined color/logo code. The color indicates a specific disposal route. The stickers on the presorting bins, the swap containers, and the container compactors are all the same color.
Yellow Sack (Gelber Sack)
Paper Recycling Bin (Papierkorb)
Gray Bin (Graue Tonne)
All items with a white field are recycled separately.
This list is not exhaustive. If you do not find the item you are looking for, please contact the Department of Environmental Protection (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you need to dispose a large quantity of waste, such as for a move or a large-scale cleanup operation, you should contact us beforehand. Toxic waste is not included in the list. Departments which regularly dispose toxic waste have appointed one or more assigned persons, who are in charge of waste disposal. These waste representatives may be consulted directly at your workplace and are in possession of all necessary forms and recycling bins.
Electronic scrap metal is picked up at regular intervals with prior notification. All electronic devices you wish to dispose must be removed from inventory beforehand. To do this, contact Department 2.1 of the Central University Administration [URL only accessible in the Freiburg university network], which will then automatically notify the Department of Environmental Protection. You will be informed in advance as to the date of the pickup. Devices which have been removed from inventory can be registered at the Department of Environmental Protection (email@example.com). All devices must be free of liquids such as motor oil, acids, bases, or solvents.
Refrigerators and freezers are picked up separately directly at the department. These collections also occur regularly with prior notification. It may also be necessary to remove a refrigerator or freezer from the inventory.
