Waste sorting and recycling

We have been given the task of, among other things, taking care of the main waste management responsibilities of the municipalities, according to regulations and orders. These tasks are performed in an effective manner and in an environmentally friendly way, irrespective of the boarders of the municipalities.

Waste bin for recycling

We offer services such as,

  • reception of waste on manned waste stations, recycling points and mixed waste points, in touring collection vehicles and collection cabinets for hazardous waste
  • waste collection from households
  • arranging the recycling of waste materials
  • waste advisory services.

Biowaste – separately sorted and collected

According to the waste management regulations biowaste should be sorted and collected separately in residential buildings with three homes or more.

In the future biowaste should also be sorted and collected in small residential buildings, including detached houses, in larger urban areas as well as in holiday homes in year-round use.

Sorting of biowaste is mandatory for the inhabitants in the Rosk’n Roll area (12 municipalities in western and eastern Uusimaa) as follows:

  • Lohja’s largest unitary urban area since 1.9.2023.
  • Nummela urban area and its surroundings in Vihti since 1.11.2023.
  • Porvoo urban area starting 1.4.2024.
  • Nikkilä and Söderkulla urban areas in Sipoo starting 1.4.2025.

Rosk’n Roll has around 100 employees. Furthermore, we employ dozens of workers as the waste transportation are supplied by subcontractors.

We have 15 manned waste stations and two offices that are located in Lohja and in Porvoo.

Reduce, reuse, recycle and recover

Good waste management follows the 4 Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Recover, as well as avoiding illegal dumping and littering.

Reduce – buy only what you really need and avoid single use items.
Reuse – buy second hand and donate your old usable clothes & other items to charitable organizations.
Recycle – sort your waste into its different categories like paper, glass, metal and plastic, so that it can be used to make new products.
Recover – mixed waste is treated in a waste-to-energy plant, where the waste is converted into heat and electricity.

Below you can find guides on how to sort your waste correctly.
