Give waste items a new life – thank you for sorting your waste!

Sorting and reducing waste is an act for the environment. By sorting, you are giving waste items a new life, as the sorted waste is turned into new products. This allows you to reduce the amount of mixed waste and to keep valuable natural resources in circulation.

A warm welcome to you from waste management!

The property’s own waste collection point enables the recycling of most types of waste. Waste that does not fit or is not suitable for the property’s own waste containers can be delivered to our Sortti Stations, for example. We also take care of the emptying of sludge in cesspools and septic tanks belonging to residential properties. Our customers include all residents of Helsinki, Espoo, Kauniainen, Vantaa and Kirkkonummi, as well as other operators covered by our waste management.

Waste containers at the property

The larger the residential property, the wider the possibilities for sorting domestic waste at your own waste collection point. We provide various waste management services for both residential properties and holiday homes.

Waste services for properties


Recycle your waste and deliver it to our Sortti Stations

Bring broken sofas, renovation waste, and brushwood to our Sortti Stations. They are turned into new products and energy. In addition, paint cans, waste oils, and other hazardous waste can be delivered to our collection points; there are almost 40 of them across the Helsinki metropolitan area. Our touring collection vehicles tour once a year, collecting electric and electronic equipment, scrap metal, and hazardous waste. If you have accumulated a truck load of waste, the appropriate reception location for it is the Ämmässuo eco-industrial centre in Espoo.

Environmental education and training

Waste management as part of the circular economy

Only sorted waste can be recycled and reused as raw materials. As a consumer, you can influence how much waste is generated. Conscious purchases, repair, restoration and recycling are all good actions to promote the circular economy and sustainable development.
