Rowhouses and apartment blocks

Housing companies with five or more apartments must have waste containers on their own yard aimed for:

  • Biowaste
  • Combustible waste
  • Paper
  • Glass packaging
  • Metal packaging
  • Batteries

Properties must also have the following waste containers as of 1 July 2023 the latest:

  • Plastic packagings
  • Cardboard packagings

Contact your waste transporter if you already want to start sorting plastic and cardboard packagings.

As of 1 July 2023 Stormossen takes over the collection of packaging waste. L&T Ympäristöpalvelut Oy will take charge of packaging waste transports from 1 July 2023. Stormossen will be responsible for transport-related customer service and invoicing.

Hazardous waste, electrical and electronic waste, and large items must be brought to a waste reception station. Every household is entitled to Stormossen’s customer card and, consequently, an unlimited number of visits to a waste reception station. Our pop up waste reception station Mikromossen goes around Vaasa area. The pop up station is a service especially for those who don’t own a car or a trailer, and therefore have no possibility to visit waste reception stations very often. You can bring as much waste as you can carry by yourself to the pop up station.

Save money by sorting biowaste

One quarter of the content of combustible waste from row houses and high-rise buildings is faulty sorted bio-waste. By sorting biowaste more efficiently, the property’s total waste costs can be reduced.

Paper bags and biowaste kitchen bins can be picked up from waste reception stations, Minimossen, Stormossen’s office in Kvevlax, or the citizen info in Vaasa and Vähäkyrö. Biowaste bags can also be picked up from Ekosoppi or the Red Cross flea market in Vaasa city center. Contact your waste transporter if you want brown paper bags for biowaste available in your own waste collection point or in another location on the property.

Information for general managers and housing companies

Always notify Stormossen about new housing companies or change of general manger in a housing company tel. 010 320 7610 or info@stormossen.fi.

Make sure that the waste collection point and containers are easily accessible, both for the residents and waste transporters. Remember to check that there is enough space around the waste containers.

Ensure that the number and size of the containers as well as their emptying intervals correspond to the needs of the property. Check that the waste collection point is kept clean and tidy. The biowaste container must be washed often so that it is neat and encourages the residents to sort their biowaste.

Inform the residents, especially new ones, of waste sorting. Provide information on what kind of waste belongs in the property’s waste containers and what should be taken to a waste reception station. If necessary, residents can be handed Stormossen’s household sorting guide. You can order this guide via our Household Sorting Advice, tel. 010 320 7676. Check that unauthorized waste is not left at the waste point.

Clear instructions at the waste point in terms of waste sorting and the acceptable contents of waste containers facilitate sorting. Make sure that containers are marked with waste type decals. Contact your waste transporter in questions concerning decals.
