Hazardous waste

Hazardous waste includes substances that, even in small quantities have the potential to harm human health and the environment. Hazardous waste must never be mixed with other wastes. You should always return all explosives, fireworks and emergency flares to the place where you bought them or hand them over to the police. All medicines and mercury-in-glass thermometers should be returned to a pharmacy.

Private individuals can dispose of their hazardous waste free of charge at the Hevossuo waste treatment centre. We ask that you return items in their original packaging wherever possible. If you no longer have the packaging, please label your waste clearly.

Hazardous wastes are delivered to Ekokem Oy for disposal. Impregnated woods will be delivered to Demolite Oy for reuse.
