In every of our objects there is a defined compound area for waste, which is emptied by the city administration. Your waste must be thrown in the foreseen trash cans. Placing waste beside the trash can is prohibited and can cause costs which you have to pay. If you can not find the compound area please ask your flat mates or neighbors.
Important: In Germany most of the waste has to be separated. So mostly there are special trash cans for normal (domestic) waste, plastic waste (with the green dot), paper waste, glass and organic waste.
The trash cans can be devided by the following colours:
Domestic (normal) waste - Grey or black trash cans
Plastic waste (with green dot) - Yellow or orange trash cans
Paper waste - Blue trash cans
Organic waste - Brown trash cans
Normally you can find trash cans for glass on public places in your neighborhood.
