Waste management

Ensure that you dispose of or recycle your waste in an appropriate manner. Every property must join organised waste management. Summer cottages must also be connected to organised waste management, unless it can be proven that the property is not in usable condition.

The municipality or a municipal waste management company is responsible for organising the waste management of municipal waste generated in dwellings. Your own municipality can provide any information you need on joining your municipality's waste management system, sorting and other waste management arrangements. 

If you have any questions related to waste management, please contact your municipality or the waste management company providing the service. The contact details for municipalities are available for example in and on each municipality’s own website.
