Waste must be sorted into proper containers as per the sorting instructions. In houses with more than 10 apartments, there are separate collection containers for organic waste, cardboard, paper, metal waste and landfill waste. Incorrectly sorted waste is a cost item to the house, and the residents must pay for it in their rents. Waste bags must not be left beside the waste containers. The lids of the waste containers must be closed at all times.
Hazardous waste, old domestic appliances, furniture and large-size waste must be delivered to a waste station. Exceptionally large volumes of waste created in conjunction with moving out must also be delivered to a waste station. More information on waste issues can be found at www.kymenlaaksonjate.fi.
