Sortti collection tour for hazardous waste
We organize a collection tour for hazardous waste in September–October 2023. We are piloting a service whereupon a collection vehicle makes tours in areas where there are currently no permanent collection points for hazardous waste. The service pilot is meant for residents.
Locations and times:

Hazardous waste (formerly problem waste)
Hazardous waste includes, among other things, energy-saving light bulbs, paints, solvents, cleaning chemicals and batteries.
