Glass

Both colored and clear glass are suitable for collection. Take the glass to the recycling point or to the Hevossuo waste station. Return the returnable glass bottles to the stores!

If necessary, rinse the glass packaging and remove caps, covers and metal parts. You don’t have to remove the labels and the neck rings. The glass is delivered to Suomen Uusioaines Oy for recycling.
