Rowhouses and apartment blocks
Housing companies with five or more apartments must have waste containers on their own yard aimed for:
- Combustible waste
- Glass packaging
- Metal packaging
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.
