with the energy waste collection as a temporary service in 2007. Back then, the
Helsinki Metropolitan Area had no facility where waste could be utilised for
energy recovery. Combustible waste, i.e. energy waste, sorted separately on
properties, was transported to Lahti for district heat and electricity
production until July 2015.
2015, we began to transport energy waste to Vantaa Energy's waste-to-energy
plant. Furthermore, domestic mixed waste has been delivered to the
waste-to-energy plant from the beginning of autumn 2014. Domestic waste is
turned into district heat and electricity.
of energy waste that was organised by HSY was terminated in April 2016. In lieu
of the collection service, we launched a trial to collect plastic packages on properties in May 2016.
