Eine Geschichte aus dem Internet: Hermann the German. And an amnesic American lost in Berlin. November 03, 2005 “The garbage police”
I got caught for the third time this morning and people in the house are starting to talk. It looks as if there may be consequences for me this time. Hermann said he got a visit from Frau Plassmann, the old lady on the ground floor. She’s the garbage Spitzel (informant) in our building. She’s the only one we know about for sure, that is. She saw me put some empty milk cartons in the normal garbage bin and not in the yellow “empty container” garbage bin next to it. One doesn’t do that here. I don’t know how she saw it but she did.
Oh man I’m dead. You can’t just simply put your household garbage in a garbage can in this country. That would bring the entire garbage collection process to a screeching halt. Glass goes in one container, the biodegradable stuff goes in another, newspapers in the next one. If you break the rules, they won’t pick your garbage up. And if they don’t pick your garbage up, people like Frau Plassmann start making calls to the Zentrale, you know; the garbage police. I’ve never actually seen them, but they must exist. They have to. How else could you get everyone here so nervous and anxious about separating their stupid milk cartons and stuff?
Antworten auf die Geschichte: I'm so glad I live in Texas where we don't *have* garbage police! Written by: pensive elf at 2005/11/12 - 04:47:57 Great stuff! This is so true it's scary. I cried laughing. Written by: Michael at 2005/11/12 - 17:12:50 Why don't you just learn how we do it in Germany? We had to learn it (because it has not always been that way) and you should be able to leern it, to. If I'm abroad, I have to accept local behaviour as well - so why can't you just accept it?

We Germans tend to believe that separating garbage is a German specialty - but obviously, that is not true. When I was in California recently, I learnt that they have a garbage separation system that works almost exactly in the same way as the German system does. You have to separate your garbage as well - and I guess the organizers of this system won't accept it when you do not comply with it. And you should not overlook that Frau Plassmann has no official function, she is not really an informant or police - just an old lady who probably is lonely and hasn't much to do, so she tries to do something that she considers "useful".
