Housing companies with five or more apartments must as of 1 July 2023 have waste containers on their own yard aimed for:
- Mixed waste (Combustible waste)
- Glass packages
- Metal packages
- Plastic packages
- Cardboard packages
As of July 2023 Stormossen takes over the collection of biowaste, packaging waste (metal, glass, plastic and carton packaging) and batteries. 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. Order your houshold customer card here. For bringing waste produced by the housing company as a collective, e.g. cleaning or renovating shared spaces, the housing company needs a corporate customer card which can be applied for here (in Finnish)
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.
Sorting waste is smart
Around a quarter of the waste incinerated in rowhouses and apartment blocks is incorrectly sorted biowaste, which can save both the environment and money. However, the majority of incinerated waste is plastic and cardboard packaging, the effective sorting of which clearly reduces the need to dispose of the most expensive type of waste – incinerated waste. This allows a property to reduce its overall waste management costs.
Paper bags for biowaste can be picked up from several places. Take a look at this page where we hand out free biowaste bags for biowaste sorting.
