Recycling


We transfer a part of the collected plastics to Wimao Oy in Lappeenranta und a part to the sorting plant of Päijät-Häme Waste Management Ltd (PHJ) in Lahti. 

Wimao Oy recycles plastics in its own production processes into new composite products. Check out example products on Wimao’s website ».

At the sorting plant of Päijät-Häme Waste Management, the sorted plastics which are suitable for recycling are delivered to Fortum Riihimäki and processed into raw material for recycled plastic.
