Residents of detached houses or housing companies with 1–4 homes will then have three alternatives for biowaste sorting.
1. Separate Biowaste Container in Your Own Yard
You can sort biowaste in a separate container in your own yard as of 1 October 2023. Stormossen will automatically bring a container (140 liters) to your yard. The container will be emptied and the waste transported by Stormossen. Check this link to find out your area’s bio waste transporters. The charge of emptying the biowaste container (140 liters) is 8,56€/emptying. It will be emptied every other week during in the summer (April–October) and can be every fourth week in the winter (November–March), or more frequently if needed. If you’d like to extend the emptying interval on your biowaste contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 010 320 7600.
Help, I Have Received an Extra Biowaste Container
Please contact Stormossen if you have received a biowaste container in your own yard, even though you use a Multi-Compartment Container or have reported to the Vaasa Region’s Waste Committee that you compost. To ensure that the information is accurate, we kindly ask you to send an e-mail to email@example.com providing your address, phone number, and the names of the adults in the household. Please mention”Biowaste Container” as subject. Stormossen will collect the extra biowaste container from your yard as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience.
2. Shared container with a neighbour
You can also sort your biowaste in a shared container with a neighbour. In that case, you need to apply for shared biowaste container to Vaasa Region’s Waste Committee (Vaasan seudun jätelautakunta) (in Finnish).
Any changes according to the shared waste container has to be reported via a form to Vaasa Region’s Waste Committee (Vaasan seudun jätelautakunta) (in Finnish).
3. Your Own, Year-Round, Closed, and Insulated Compost
If you have a closed and insulated compost that is used year-round, you can sort your biowaste into it. You can also share the compost with a neighbour. Bokashi is also allowed. In that case, post-composting in a closed compost is compulsory. You must fill out a composting notification form at Vaasa Region’s Waste Committee’s (Vaasan seudun jätelautakunta) website (in Finnish).
If you wish to stop composting and choose another method of sorting you must fill a form at Vaasa Region’s Waste Committee’s website (in Finnish).
4. Stormossen’s Multi-Comparment Container
In the Stormossen’s Multi-Compartment Container you can sort biowaste, metal packages, plastic packages and carton packages in the Multi-Compartment Container. The price for the emptying of the container is 14,86€/emptying (incl. VAT 24%). The price includes transportation cost, the container service cost and the treatment cost for biowaste (the package waste don’t have treatment fees). One household can not share a Multi-Compartment Container with another household.
The emptying interval for the Multi-Compartment Container is every other week in the summer time (1.4.-30.10.) and it can be extended for every fourth week in the winter time (1.11.-31.3.).

Combustible waste container remains mandatory
All households must continue to have a combustible waste container. Residents will choose their waste transporter and order their waste transports themselves also in the future. The combustible waste can be shared with a neighbour. You must apply for a shared combustible waste container from Vaasa Region’s Waste Committee (in Finnish).
