Biowaste

Kuvassa omena

 

Around a third of all household waste is made up of organic material. You can use your biowaste container or composter to dispose of all organic matter, i.e. anything that was previously a living organism. Please place your biowaste in a paper bag or in a folded newspaper bag.

Biowaste is turned into gas at the biogas plants. If biowaste is not separated from other waste, it will be incinerated alongside mixed waste and this will impair the incineration process.
