Changes in our services and instructions to customers

Sorting and packing of waste during pandemic

Put tissues and napkins to mixed waste container, not in the biowaste container.

Gather contaminated waste in their own waste bin. Cover the bin with plastic bag before use.  Before taking the plastic bag to the waste container close it carefully. Empty the separate bin daily.

Sort different kind of packaging waste, flatten and pack them tightly to reduce the amount of waste. Don’t leave your waste to recycling or areal collection points if the containers are full.


UFF informs that most of its textile collection points are closed for the time being. At Jätekukko's area of operation it means all UFF's collection points. The coronavirus pandemic has complicated delivering forward the collected clothes. Customers are asked to store clothes at home in a dry place until exceptional circumstances are over. In Jätekukko's area textile collection points are located in sorting stations and some of the areal collection points.
