Hazardous waste is dangerous to humans and the environment. Hazardous waste can be small and seem innocent, but in the wrong place it can cause serious damage to health and the environment. This is why it’s important to sort and treat hazardous waste safely.
Keep different types of hazardous waste separated. Store it in the original packaging or write the content clearly on the package. You can return old medicines to pharmacies and used batteries to shops.
Collection at the sorting stations
All our sorting stations accept hazardous waste year round. For households it’s free of charge up to 50 kg or litres. Hazardous waste from companies is accepted according to the pricelist. We accept 100 kg/l per hazardous waste type.
In addition to our sorting stations, hazardous waste is accepted in the recycling centres, in the Siira sorting station on wheels and in the Pop up -sorting station.
Collection points in recycling centres (up to 50 kg/l)
