Waste disposal in housing locations of Soihtu

Waste disposal in housing locations of Soihtu is handled with concentrated waste collection points in which most of the container are deep collection containers.


If the waste collection point you normally use is full, do not leave garbage bags or other waste outside the containers, but use other collection containers in the area (see maps below). Waste left outside containers increases collection costs and can attract vermin to the area. Also, it is strictly forbidden to leave garbage bags in the corridors of the apartment buildings for the same reason.
