Sorting guidelines:

Pack bio waste in wrapping that will decompose, such as newspaper or a biodegradable bag, before putting it into a bio waste container. It’s importat to pack bio waste in order to keep the waste container clean and odourless. You don’t need to pack bio waste for your home composter.

If you do not have access to a composter or bio waste container, bio waste is burnable waste.

Sort both recyclable waste and hazardous waste separately.

Sell usable clothing and home textiles in good condition for example on a flea market or take them to a collection for a charitable organisation.

Sort clean and dry used up textiles into end-of-life textiles. Sort dirty, damp, mouldy, intensively smelling and textile pest containing textiles as burnable waste. Sort rugs, shoes, handbags, belts, underwear, socks, stockings, pillows, blankets, padding and stuffed toys according to size either as burnable waste or large burnable waste (larger than 60 x 60 cm).

Please pack the end-of-life textiles in a tightly closed plastic bag or waste bag. Textiles that are not packed, will be received as burnable waste and charged according to price list.

End-of-life textiles are not received at the Mörttilä sorting station.
