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
