Join the waste transport system by contacting our customer service, tel. 0200 47470 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Individual waste containers in the main land
On the main land and the biggest islands of Pargas (Nagu, Korpo and Houtskär) each property shall have it’s own waste container. The waste container of a detached house must have a lid and wheels. Only sorted burnable waste, used for energy production at a waste-to-energy plant, is to be put in the waste container.
The most common container size is 240 litres, well suited for a family of four. Our customer service is happy to help you select a suitable container. Waste containers can be purchased by contacting our customer service, or from a DIY store, for example. It is also possible to rent a container from LSJH.
Place the waste container so that the distance from the waste collection vehicle to the waste container does not exceed 10 metres. Often, the best place is at the junction of the driveway to the property. The road must be able to bear the weight of the waste collection vehicle, often more than 20 tonnes. There shall also be enough room to turn the vehicle. The container should be marked with the name of the owner or the number of the house.
Emptying of the waste container
The longest interval for the emptying of a burnable waste container is four weeks. If the property is composting food waste in a compost bin protected from rodents, the interval for the emptying of the waste container can be extended to eight or even twelve weeks.
The waste containers of summer homes shall be emptied at least during the period between May and the beginning of October.
Our aim is to always empty the waste container on the same day of the week, but the day may vary by +/- 1 day.
Where to take other types of waste?
Only everyday burnable household waste shall be placed in your own waste container. Glass, metal, paper, cardboard and plastic containers shall be taken to a public waste recycling point. You can find the recycling point locations with the help of the recycling point search. It is advisable to compost food waste in a heat-insulated compost bin.
Waste hazardous to the environment and humans shall be taken to a waste treatment centre or sorting station. This also applies to electronic devices, renovation waste, furniture, and garden waste. For more detailed sorting instructions please see the Waste search.
All reusable goods should be taken to a recycling centre or flea market.
The waste management authority has set container-specific waste fees. LSJH bills properties according to the number of agreed waste container emptyings. For waste left next to the waste container, or other special services, an additional fee is charged in accordance with the price list.
Shared waste containers in the archipelago
For the residents of the archipelago we have arranged shared waste containers for the burnable and the mixed waste. In the islands where there is no road connection, the residents sort their everyday waste into these shared waste containers. Containers are used in Kimitoön’s Rosala-Hitis, Högsåra and other smaller island, in Pargas’s smaller islands (not the islands of Nagu, Korpo or Houtskär) and in the islands of Masku and Naantali.
Residents and summer quests in the archipelago pay an annual waste fee for each permanent home and summer house in the area. Composting food waste gives you a lower price so it pays to sort bio waste even in your summer house.
Basic fee for waste management
In addition to the waste collection fees, every residence holder or owner pays a so-called basic fee. The basic fee for waste management is an annual fee.
