Waste Collection Points

There are several waste collection ("eco") points meant for private persons in the Oulu region. Collection points are intended for household waste including paper, cardboard, glass and recyclable metal.

The collection points are not intended for hazardous waste, which is received at points such as the Rusko waste centre. For more details, see the Oulu Waste Management website.

Businesses can leave their waste at the Rusko Waste Centre, where private persons can also take infrequent large quantities of waste (such as waste created in conjunction with renovation, moving, or gardening).
