Garbage disposal

Post by ogiv » Mon Nov 23, 2020 2:11 pm

Hello, Please let me know how I can dispose the following items in Finland -

1. Expired medicines
2. Batteries
3. Old electronic items
4. Furniture

Is there any online information in English about the garbage disposal in general?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Warm Regards
Ogiv

1. You can return then to pharmacy.
2. Many shops are having used batteries collection points, normally near bottle collection machines. or at recycle points.
3. If they still work you can give them to kierrätyskeskus, if they are broken to sortti asema. For free. Also big shops like Gigantti takes them if you buy a new one.
4. If is usable at kierrätyskeskus or similar places. If is not usable sortti assema. Shops also takes old ones if you buy new one.
