Try to keep the surfaces clean and clean up accidents. We've been warned about mice. Leaving any food around will attract them and create problems. Think chewed cables and mouse shit everywhere.


There are to be no dishes left dirty/used. See above for the reason. We do have a dishwasher.

Running the dishwasher

If dishwasher is full with dirty dishes, you can run it. Soap tablets are in the drawer beneath the bar on the right. Tablets should be used without removing the plastic layer.


  • Put a tablet in the designated space and close the little lid
  • Close the dishwasher
  • Start it by pushing the button

Emptying the dishwasher

If dishwasher is full with clean dishes, please empty it. Dry if needed and put stuff away.


Basically once a week should suffice just a quick run around the main room.

Once a month the higher surfaces should be vacuumed with a brush attachment. (window sills, desks and such)

  • This should keep things nicer for people who are sensitive to dust and dog hair.
  • Equipment itself will have to be cleaned less often

Tidy up work spaces

Before you leave, make sure the next person to use the place has all the room he or she needs. Don't occupy desk space after you leave, don't leave parts laying about. As a rule of thumb, try to leave the space behind in a tidier state than you found it.


PMD Waste (orange bags)

PDM (plastic, metal, drink cartons is collected in Orange bags. Bags need to be dropped at a PMD container. There is one on the way to the Aldi. There's one behind the AH.

Garbage Bins (usually black bags)

These need to be emptied when full, and are not to contain any food/edibles/liquids. Full bags can go in the container. Here are the dates that the container will be collected by ACV:

Put the container outside the evening before, on the corner outside the game room.

Paper / Carton / Cardboard Waste

Goes in the paper container near the fuse box. Here is the schedule near it when the container will be collected by ACV.

Metal Waste

There is currently no metal waste collection, only for metal cans. They go in the orange bags, see above (plastic). Rest of metal waste can go to Afvalbrengstation.


There is a little box in the tool room. When it's full, they need to go to Afvalbrengstation or in the designated bins at some stores, for instance Hoogvliet.

Empty Bottles

There is a glass disposal container near the space, visible in the distance @ There is also one on the way to the Aldi. Bottles that carry a deposit can be brought to a supermarket (yay monies for free).


Reorder space

If you see some place where storage is changed to chaos, try to clear it out with these simple steps;

  1. Clear out a storage place
  2. Sort out the chaos, find the biggest common denominator
  3. Move this to the cleared out place
  4. DOCUMENT both what has moved and what stays behind!!! Post it on the wiki (for example here and/or here)

Document something

If you find something lacking documentation, fix that. Create a page, take a picture, describe what you know and what you can find out yourself. Let others know about your efforts so they can chime in.
