Own container

The waste container is acquired by the owner / holder of the property and its location is subject to a suitable road to the garbage truck. The maximum emptying interval (without separate application) of a permanent residence waste container is four weeks. The waste container for a leisure home is emptied as necessary, however, at least three times in the summer for a maximum of four weeks of emptying interval.

Use of a shared container is economical

The shared waste container for multiple users is the most economical way to properly handle waste management. The shared container system can consist of two or more nearby neighbor properties. In the sparsely populated area, the shared container system can also be formed by village committees and road authorities. The waste container must have a contact person to whom the invoice is sent and which corresponds to the maintenance of the container.

Change from the regional waste collection system to property-specific collection

From 2017 permanent and leisure house holders who have so far used regional waste collection system, should move to a property-based or shared container system. The use of leisure houses in the archipelago is organized by a collection of waste at the town’s boat docks.


In the Eurajoki area there is a contractual waste transport system where the owner of the property concludes an agreement with the waste transport company they want.
