From the beginning of the year, dry waste collected from households in Central Finland has been incinerated to produce energy

From the beginning of 2016, the content of regular garbage bags from households in Central Finland is longer transported to local landfill sites. Combustible household waste, i.e. dry waste, is transported to a waste-to-energy plant where it is incinerated to produce energy – power and heat. This is based on a regulation which came into force at the beginning of the year. Accordingly, organic waste, such as plastics and textiles, can no longer be disposed of at landfill sites. Instead, such waste must be recycled or utilised as energy.

The objective of the Lajittele mua (“Sort Me”) campaign is to improve the quality of combustible waste by reducing the amount of biowaste and to encourage people to sort their waste.
