Waste Sorting in Pyhä
Recycling is very important to us in Pyhä since by sorting your rubbish properly, the waste becomes either new raw material or energy for producing electricity and heat.
You will find our recycling points in three locations:
- K-market parking lot: glass, metal, paper, cardboard and combustible waste
- Sienimaa crossroad: glass, metal and combustible waste
- Lake Pyhäjärvi recycling point, next to road Messupyhäntie: glass, metal and combustible waste
Did you know that you will get a refund for bringing your empty drinking bottles and cans back to the K-market?
In Pyhä, instead of dumping our waste to a landfill site, we are now collecting combustible waste. The energy stored in the waste is taken into use, by burning it in an eco-power plant. As a result, electricity and heat for households are created.
You can sort e.g. your plastics, food scraps and other biodegradable waste, as well as dirty or wet cardboard into combustible waste. Take a look at our waste sorting instructions here.
Note that it is very important to separate metal and glass from combustible waste as they harm the burning process.
