Mixed waste, of course, shall include things and materials, which cannot be sorted into other categories. Yet one should keep in mind that if a yoghurt cup is, from time to time, dropped into mixed waste it does not mean so much as if the mixed waste is contaminated with any hazardous waste as, for instance, only one AA size battery.
