This thesis analyses the feasability of automatic sorting of solid waste and potential recycables as well as the utilisation after conditioning. Objecitve is the description of sorting devices (state of the art) and resulting consequences for communal waste collection. On the basis of description of devices, intermediate results of ongoing studies and data of pilot projects options for collection, sorting and utilisation are compared. Advantages and disadvantages as well as problems by modifying collection systems are described in terms of ecology, economy, jurisdiction and politics. Result is that present-day sorting devices are able to assort complex, dry potential recycables nearly automatically. In case of reorganisation of systems opportunities and effects have to be evaluated in every particular case. A complete stopping of seperate collection of potential recycables is certainly premature. Adjustments towards a single stream accumulation bin for several potential recycables or the use of conditioned waste as refuse derived fuel are with adequate general framework absolutely possible.
