Waste management for detached houses


Waste container for combustible waste and contract for emptying

Every household must have a waste bin for combustible waste. You yourself make an agreement about emptying the waste container with a waste transport company. It is the waste transport company that invoices the transport and treatment fee of the combustible waste.

‍Emptying interval.

In the summertime, from may until september, the waste container must be emptied at least every two weeks. In winter, from October to the end of April, the emptying interval can be a maximum of four weeks. For one- and two-person households, that produce little waste, the emptying interval can be four weeks all year round.

 Application for extension of the waste bin emptying interval (in Finnish)

If you compost the bio waste in a heat insulated compost, you can be granted an extended emptying interval of maximum eight weeks. An extended emptying interval is sought from the Suupohja’s waste committee.

 If you compost the bio-waste, you must notify the Suupohja’swaste committee, either electronically or with a printable form:

Waste center

Large amounts of waste are delivered to the waste center in Teuva. Household waste that does not belong in the combustible waste bin at home or can’t be delivered to an ecopoint are mainly delivered to the recycling station. As a rule of thumb, a car trailer with waste belongs at the recycling station, while a tractor trailer with a single type of waste is brought to the waste center.
