What is vehicle gas?

Vehicle gas is refined biogas (CBG = compressed biogas), natural gas (CNG = compressed natural gas) or a mixture of the two gases. At Stormossen’s refuelling stations we sell only CBG. The gas used for vehicle gas refuelling is first compressed to about 300 bar and then filled into the car’s tank at about 200 bar.

Where do I find the opening hours for the waste reception stations?
I don’t have a customer card. Can I still bring waste to a waste reception station?

You need to have your customer card with you when visiting a waste reception station. If you don’t have a customer card you can fill in a form on our website to order one. If you are in a hurry you can get a card from the waste reception station.

To download your customer card as an application on your smartphone you need your customer card number. If you already have a customer card but can’t find your card number you can ask for it at info@stormossen.fi or by calling Stormossen’s office 010 320 7600 (Mon-Fri 9 am – 3 pm).

I produce no waste. Do I have to have a container?

Yes. All households must be connected to the municipal waste service. This is to minimize instances where waste is dumped in the nature. If you only produce a small amount of waste, then we recommend using a small waste container and optimized emptying intervals. A container shared with a neighbour is also an option.

The waste bin has not been emptied. What to do?

Stormossen is responsible for emptying the following waste containers:

  • biowaste
  • multi-compartment containers
  • package waste (metal, glass, carton and plastic packages) and batteries

If the waste bins mentioned have not been emptied, please contact logistiikka@stormossen.fi or 010 320 7676.

If the emptying conserns mixed waste (combustible waste) or paper, contact your own waste transporting company.

What is an eco-charge?

The eco-charge is charged to all households and holiday homes in the Stormossen area. The eco-charge is used to maintain eco-points, waste reception stations, campaign collections and waste advice, among other things.

The eco-charge is based on the waste legislation, under which both permanent and holiday residents are obliged to contribute to the investment and maintenance costs of the service facilities set up by the municipality for the management of waste from their property.

The Vaasa Region Waste Committee (Vaasan seudun jätelautakunta) has established a fee, which is a so-called public charge. Therefore, no contract between the municipality and the property owner is required. According to the Waste Tariff, Stormossen will take care of the invoicing. The Waste charge is available on the Waste Committee’s website www.jatteet.fi (external link in Finnish).

What kind of waste is sorted as biowaste?

All waste that decomposes, e.g. all food leftovers, peels from fruit and vegetables, fish trimmings, solid and liquid fats (in a carton packaging). Also coffee filters, tea bags, paper towels, napkins and faded flowers are biowaste. You can also put egg cartons in the biowaste but unfortunately egg shells cause huge trouble at our biowaste management plant so we recommend to put egg shells in mixed waste (combustible waste). Dog poop, cat sand etc. is not acceptable in the biowaste.

Who is entitled to a customer card?

All households and holiday homes in our region that pay the eco charge are entitled to a customer card. Read more about how the customer card works by clicking on this link.

How is the eco-charge calculated?

From 1.1.2023, the eco-charge for properties with 1 to 4 apartments will be calculated per apartment and not on the basis of the number of residents, as was previously the case. The same applies to properties with five or more residential units.

Where can I get a customer card from?

You can fill in a form on our website and you will get your card via mail. You can also get a customer card when visiting our waste reception station.

To download your customer card as an application on your smartphone you need your customer card number. If you have (had) a card, but can’t find your card number, you can ask for it at info@stormossen.fi or by calling Stormossen’s office 010 320 7600 (Mon-Fri 9 am – 3 pm).

Which bags for biowaste work in the Stormossen plant?

We recommend that biowaste is sorted into Stormossen’s paper bags, other paper bags, e.g. flour or potato bags or bags made from folded newspapers. We recommend paper bags because they decompose better than so-called bioplastic bags in the biowaste treatment process. Do not use regular plastic bags.
