The vehicles accept three different types of waste from residents free of charge: domestic hazardous waste, electric and electronic devices as well as scrap metal. We deliver the waste for proper treatment.
What can you bring to the HSY collection vehicles?
Hazardous waste (formerly problem waste)
Hazardous waste includes, among other things, energy-saving light bulbs, paints, solvents, cleaning chemicals and batteries.

Electrical scrap includes, for example, refrigerators, freezers, televisions, coffee makers, washing machines, computers and electric mixers.
Deliver larger quantities, such as trailer loads, of electric and electronic equipment to Sortti Stations.
We cannot guarantee information security. If necessary, use a service such as Seiffi.fi to dispose of devices with memory storage, such as computers and mobile devices.
