Sort non-combustible material into mixed waste, like ceramics, china and other porcelain, cat litter, drinking glasses, glass bakeware dishes and mirror shards. These are non-combustible materials for which there is no recycling option or which cannot be utilised for making new products. They cannot be burned or generate energy but a waste-to-energy plant is able to deal with this kind material to some extent.
Large amounts or large-size objects of non-combustible material, such as aggregates or sanitaryware, have to be taken to a Sortti Station. Check out more specific instructions on our web pages under Sortti Stations.
The result from non-combustible materials after a waste-to-energy plant’s treatment process is called slag. We transport slag for pre-treatment at Ämmässuo and it is used for earthworks, for example.
However, sort separately all recyclable material, for instance glass bottles and glass jars, as well as metal items. They will be turned into raw materials for new products. Large metal items in particular can cause harm in the waste-to-energy plant. There is also a separate collection available for electric and electronic devices and for hazardous waste free of charge.
