The Environment Department advises and supervises businesses, operators and residents in matters relating to waste and waste management.

The advise and supervision may concern, for example, the sorting of waste or the storage and processing of toxic waste. The Environment Department can be informed about litter and defects in the sorting of waste or the storage and processing of toxic waste.

See the HSY website for further information about waste management, sorting and recycling.

To whom and on what terms

The service is free of charge.

Background information

Municipalities and municipal waste utilities provide advice on how to treat municipal waste. As part of the advisory service, local residents are provided with information on the environmental impacts of their own activities, sustainable consumption, recycling, composting, food waste and waste treatment. The purpose of the advisory service is to reduce the amount and harmfulness of municipal waste and to ensure proper waste management practices. You can report on littering or inadequacies in the treatment and storage of dangerous substances to the waste advisory service of your municipality.

Waste advice is available online, in printed publications and at information briefings. Municipalities may organise the advisory service with their own resources or by other means (such as an outsourced service).
