Norwegian to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Environment & Ecology / waste collection
Norwegian term or phrase:ambulerende
De vellykkede pilotprosjektene for økt innsamling av farlig avfall er blitt videreutviklet og utvidet med sikte på gjennomføring i hele x kommune. Dette dreier seg om bydelsvise *ambulerende* innsamlinger og innsamlinger fra borettslag....
Not sure what sort of collection is meant. Advice appreciated.
Explanation: Not really sure, but I think we have something like this here. Twice a year householders can put out hazardous/bulky waste alongside the wheely bin for collection (all other times it has to be transported to the depot by the householder) and the municipality makes special collections. I assume housing associations, blocks of flats etc have one fixed depot point for occasions like this.
I guess the point is to make sure hazardous waste ends up in the right place, however often the collection is, rather then being put in the wheely bin 'cos it's easier.
