Glass waste

First see UU on glass, glass packaging and labglass/other glass.

Glass packaging.
Sorted into fractions colored and noncolored glass and placed in each receptacle in departments own recycling station or in recycling central in D0.

- Packaging must be well emptied and cleaned.
- Remove all markings and labels in proper way.
- Absolutely forbidden to put anything on the floor.
- Never overfill the vessels.
- If vessel is full - Use other bins.

Glass packaging labeled with pictograms for 'Acute toxicity' ('The Skull and Crossbone'), 'Hazardous to the environment' ('Fish and tree') or 'Seroius healt hazard' ('Exploding lung') must NOT be recycled but left as chemical waste according to these routines.

Labglass and glass that are not packaging should not be placed in receptacle for recycling.
Non contaminated laboratory glassware and non-packaging glass is classified as cutting/puncturing type 1 non-contaminated and shall be handled as combustible fraction.
Pack the glasswaste in yellow plastic waste box with blue label.
These boxes are placed on conveyor belt of D0:005. See map.

If labglass is chamically contaminated, it must be treated as cutting & Puncturing type 2 chemically contaminated or chemical waste due to contamination cause.
If labglass is infectious contaminated, it must be treated as cutting & Puncturing type 3 infectious.
