Waste management for rowhouses and apartment blocks

Waste container for combustible waste and contract for emptying

Rowhouses and apartment blocks must have one or more waste bins for combustible waste. During the summer, i.e., from May to the end of September, the bins must be emptied at intervals of 1–2 weeks and at other times at intervals of 1–4 weeks. An agreement of emptying is made with a waste transport company. The waste transport company invoices the transport and treatment fee of the combustible waste.

‍The ecopoints

If the residential building is in a rural area or is located in an urban area, but consists of less than 5 apartments, separate collection of paper and packaging waste is not required, these types of waste can be taken to the nearest ecopoint.


Waste paper, metal and glass packaging can be taken to the nearest Botniarosk ecopoint or Rinki ecopoint. In addition to paper, metal and glass packaging, cardboard packaging is also collected at the Rinki eco-points.

Waste center

Large quantities of waste are delivered to the waste center in Teuva. Household waste, that does not belong in the waste bin at the residential building or at the ecopoints, is 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 left at the waste center.
