Transportation fee covers one sewage water system’s one-time sludge collection and transportation costs.
In one visit to Nagu or Korpo, a maximum of 13 m³ of sludge can be emptied. In Houtskär, the maximum amount of sludge in one visit is 6 m³.
The sludge treatment fee is applied according to the cubic volume of the sludge emptied from the sludge tank.
Transportation equipment transfer fee
If the sludge treatment vehicle must be transferred between sludge tanks with an upper limit of 300 metres, a transportation equipment transfer fee will be added to the emptying price.
If the location or condition of the sludge tank requires special measures in connection with the emptying, a special-measure fee will be added to the price by the hour.
Fee for unnecessary collection
The fee for unnecessary collection is applied if
- the sludge tank is not found based on the directions or its location has not been marked,
- the sludge tank contains material that does not belong there and emptying cannot be carried out,
- the sludge tank’s condition or cover prevents emptying or causes an occupational safety risk,
- a lock on the sludge tank prevents emptying, the route to the tank is impassable, or
- the sludge tank is empty.
Only the unnecessary collection fee will be applied, no other fees.
Transportation fee for fixed-date emptying
A transportation fee for fixed-date emptying is applied when the sludge collection is separately ordered for an agreed date.
If fixed-date emptying is ordered for a separately agreed-upon weekday, it must be booked two working days before the emptying at the latest.
If fixed-date emptying is ordered for a separately agreed-upon Saturday, Sunday, or public holiday, it must be booked four working days before the emptying at the latest.
Transportation fee for express emptying
If same-day emptying is needed, a transportation fee for express emptying will be applied. If same-day emptying is needed at the weekend or on a public holiday, a transportation fee for express emptying at weekends will be applied.
