About the HSY website
The HSY website is a web service maintained by the Helsinki Region Environmental Services Authority. We published the Finnish language version of the website on 1st January 2010. We expanded the contents and services provided on the site in spring 2010. We also set up limited versions of the site in Swedish and English.
We apologize that all contents and services are not yet available in Swedish or English and for any possible inconvenience caused by this. If you wish to receive service in Swedish or English, please contact our customer service by telephone on 09 15611 or by email at hsy(at)hsy.fi.

The HSY website is not scalable. It is designed for optimal operation at a resolution of 1024 x 768. If you have a lower resolution, the website content may not necessarily be fully visible, and if the resolution is higher, the website margins will include blank areas.
HSY holds the legal rights to the material in the web service unless otherwise stated. The website content may be freely included in any links, although use of the material for commercial purposes is always subject to separate agreement with the Chief Web Editor.
The copyright to photographs, other illustrative material and maps rests with the photographers or creators or with HSY. The use of such material is always subject to separate agreement with the Chief Web Editor.
HSY is responsible for the content of the web service and makes every attempt to ensure it is up to date. If errors are found, these will be corrected at the first opportunity. The date on which the information was last updated is given at the foot of each page. HSY cannot, however, guarantee that all information on the website is true and accurate at all times.
HSY shall not be liable to users or third parties for any errors or omissions in the web service information, nor for any direct or indirect damage or loss caused by use or interpretation of the web service.
The web service may contain links to other websites. HSY is not responsible for the content of such external websites nor for the functioning of the links to them.
