Blue is for all paper and carton, newspapers, magazines, and all packaging made from cartons such as milk and juice cartons. Rinse all food from the materials and compress them to make room for more. Do not put any plastics into the blue bin.

 

Green is for all plastics, both soft and hard. Soft plastics are for example plastic bags, plastic film and bubble plastic. Hard plastics are containers of all sorts, for example yogurt boxes, plastic trays, and shampoo containers. Rinse all food and chemicals from plastics before placing them in the bin.

 

The brown bin is for food waste. Food waste should be collected in a paper bag. We recommend that you dispose of this bag every 2-3 days and do not throw very moist/wet food waste in it.

Please note that you can also throw the white coffee capsules (from Te&kaffi) into this bin.

You can leave the bottles and cans in the apartment, take it to “Endurvinnslan, if you want to get the deposit back, or bring it to “Grænir skátar” at Hallgrímskirkja and the local Scouts will get the profit.

There is a Nespresso coffee machine in your apartment.

 

 

How it works

Make sure this is enough water in the water tank on the back of the machine. If the buttons show red lights, the water level might be too low.

To add coffee, pull up the handle on top of the machine, add the Nespresso capsule in the compartment and close it by pulling the handle down again.

Choose the type of coffee you want (espresso: small cup or lungo: large cup) by pushing the small rounded buttons with the cup image.

If you can’t close the machine with the handle, the capsule compartment might be full.

Empty the compartment by pulling the front tray, taking the compartment/drawer out and empty it. Place it in the machine again before continuing to make your delightful cup of coffee.

There is a Whirlpool dishwasher in your apartment.
Please remember to use ONLY specific tablets for a dishwasher. Do NOT use the dishwashing liquid in the dishwasher machine.

To turn the dishwasher on, press the power button on the left, choose the program you want to use with the P button and start the program with the Play/pause button on the right.

If you have any problems with using the dishwasher, please contact us.

You need to pull the string on the back of the sofa forward, until the bed is open and the mattress is fully flattened out.

You need to make sure the mattress is placed within the mattress frame before closing it. If you have any issues closing the sofa, it is possible that you need to pull the mattress towards you before trying to close it again.

You should then be able to turn them in both directions.

Most of Iceland’s houses are heated by geothermal water. The water runs through the radiators heating up the cast iron and warming up the place.

Sleeping sofa

 

To adjust the settings of a radiator you must turn the knob to a higher or lower setting. The knob is usually located on either side of the radiator.

Note that it takes a little while for the radiators to get hot so don’t put them on full blast just yet. In fact, setting it to 2-3 is usually enough for a radiator that goes up to 5. For a radiator that goes up to 8 the normal setting is about 4-5. Adjusting the setting any higher can lead to rooms getting steamy and the radiators to start emitting heat smell.

In Iceland we have the standard Europlug, a flat, two-pole, round-pin domestic AC power plug, rated for voltages up to 250 V and currents up to 2.5 A.

 

For these plugs, you can use adapter types “C” or “F”. These are often labeled as a Northern Europe adapter.

95% of all water in Iceland comes from springs in the ground, so it never comes in touch with any pollution. Unlike in many neighboring countries, the Icelandic water is free of chlorine, calcium and nitrate. It contains sulfur, which sometimes gives an egg smell when you use the hot water. 

The quality of tap water in Reykjavík is well monitored, so you are not to worry about drinking directly from the tap, as Icelandic water is one of the purest water you’ll find in the world.

Alcohol is quite expensive in Iceland and can only be bought at state run stores called Vínbúðin. The DutyFree store at the airport is a lot cheaper (you will see all the Icelanders go straight there). If you plan on purchasing alcohol, we recommend doing that before picking up your bags at the airport.

Don’t be fooled by the “beer” you see at local supermarkets. Those are light beers with only 0-2% alcohol.

People under the age of 20 are not allowed to buy alcohol of any kind in Iceland. 

Just a kind reminder: No parties are allowed at the apartment.
