The City of Riihimäki has transferred the responsibility for the tendering and transport of dry, mixed, biowaste and plastic packaging to Kiertokapula Oy. The system also applies to regional collection points for mixed waste. Residential properties agree on the waste management of these waste components with Kiertokapula’s customer service. Kiertokapula also handles invoicing.

Joining waste management

The easiest way to join waste management is via our online services (only in Finnish) or by contacting Kiertokapula’s waste management customer service. In the case of waste components other than those managed by Kiertokapula, properties agree on the emptying of containers with their chosen transport company.

Invoicing of waste container emptying

We normally invoice for waste container emptying every three (3) months. If you wish, you can change the billing interval to one month, three months or six months. Invoices of less than five (5) euros will not be invoiced, with the amount instead carried over to the next billing period. No separate fee is charged for paper invoices, but we recommend using an e-invoice. 

For Riihimäki, invoices arrive in January, April, July and October.  If your only invoice is the basic waste management charge, invoices arrive in January and July.

Washing of waste containers

The washing of the waste containers is included in the emptying prices. Biowaste containers are washed twice a year and dry and mixed containers once a year.

Christmas tree disposal

Christmas trees will be collected free of charge nearby the waste container during January-February.

Environmental damage and littering

If you notice littering or other inappropriate treatment of waste, please contact the environmental protection authority of your municipality. The contact information is available here (only in Finnish).
