you can change the rust on the bridge of angels, modern on lampposts in front of or obstruct the metal bracket in front of train stations: Every year, the Berlin district offices to dispose of thousands of scrap bikes. Especially now that the temperatures are climbing, and people are increasingly back on the bike climbing, resent cyclists on pitches that are blocked by bulky waste. Because the elimination of the Bicycle is lame bodies of their opinion, comes from the CDU, the demand for a new method.
"It needs a bike Park, houses and a Central disposal site for Scrap tires," says Oliver Friederici, transport policy spokesman in the house of representatives. "In the past, each district have the Problem differently, most of the regulatory agencies are responsible, but sometimes the parks and recreation Department." Also, under the vagina, how often districts out wheels served to collect.
Friederici has made a request to the Senate administration for environment and transport, in order to gain an Overview of the extent of the problem. From the response of the Secretary of state Ingmar Streese, that of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf has scrapped in the past year, the majority of Bicycle bodies, namely, 507.
Neukölln is ranked in the Legacy on with 494 wheels, followed by Steglitz-Zehlendorf, with 335 bikes and Pankow with 129 bodies. A Trend is evident over the past few years, the Numbers for 2017 and 2016 have consistently been several hundred wrecks.daily mirror people for Free order
Only a few districts participate
However, four-ranged more of the twelve districts, just their Numbers in the Senate. Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg is also reported to request that the district moved in the year 2018 903 wrecks off the road. The recent city-wide Figures are out of date: 2015 the districts moved to 1338 Radleichen from the traffic, 2014, there were 2588. Together, the five 2018-adds alone 2368 illegally disposed of a wire donkey. The comparison indicates a city-wide increase.
Friederici suggests the lack of involvement of the districts as a lack of interest. "I don't understand why there are about in the Parking space management of a uniform execution provision from the Senate and Scrap bicycles," he says. So Neukölln wrecks on a monthly basis, Steglitz far-Zehlendorf, only two to three times per year.
The Senate administration for environment and transport has not commented on the request in the short term to the desire for more centralization. From the Letter of Ingmar Streese hevor only that, there are pages of the Senate, any efforts to make "scrap bicycles functional, and to sell again". This is a proposal by Oliver Friederici.
The General German Bicycle Club (ADFC) criticized as the CDU Deputy, that often too much time goes into the country before wrecks disappear from the street picture. "The Offices not to come to work often fast enough," says Nikolas Linck, a spokesman for the Berlin state Association.
Yellow circle on the bike frame
Generally, the method provides that passers-by or local residents to report Radleichen, such as the App of the clerk's office. Field service employees have in their tours an eye on any possible wrecks. What is heard is allegedly in the trash, marking the patrols. Many districts are working now with the "yellow point" method: you put a piece of paper with a large yellow circle on the frame of the bicycles. He points to the owner that their vehicle will be disposed of if it is in three weeks, still unmoving in the same place. After the expiry of the period of time the BSR is coming and disposed of the bodies properly as scrap metal.
Other districts to handle the disposal in a different way: About Steglitz-Zehlendorf has its own warehouse, docked Department of the deep. Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, works with a repair shop, the wheels, if possible, re-fit, and non-profit institutions given away.
ADFC: There is a lack of secure Parking facilities
For ADFC spokesman Nicholas Linck of the scrap in the streets is also a big Nuisance, because it's missing in Berlin is in secure Parking facilities for bicycles. How Friederici, he calls for a bike Park houses, guarding against a small fee, wheels. "Especially at railway stations, where there are especially a lot of scrap wheels to collect, would guarantee the city commuters a Parking space and with the fee, at least here, no wrecks more land," says Linck.
The district of Neukölln sees no need to. "We have created in the past year alone in the North of neukölln over 1000 new Anlehnmöglichkeiten," says Christian Berg, spokesman for district mayor Martin Hikel. He defends himself against the accusation, bike wrecks would have to be disposed of slowly. "For us, the regulatory Agency, approaching often within a couple of days, when a message is received in the App."More about

Berg reported that the BSR served recently moved alone to two days, more than 60 bikes from the traffic. For a learning process at the waste-to-sinners, disused wire donkeys belong to the recycling center instead of on the road, the not just.
