Sanitation well service can be ordered by contacting customer service by phone, email or using our service orders page. The wells are emptied on weekdays from 7 am to 3 pm and outside this time there is an on-call service.

Summer is active time for the sanitation service side, so we recommend ordering the service well in advance if possible.

We recommend filling alarms if you have a bottle well (closed well).

This way you can ensure thst the well does not be overfilled by the time the service is able to reach you.

If necessary, the emptying can also be taken on the route, in which case the emptying comes automatically every year.

Route services are made outside peak periods, ie well in advance of Easter, Midsummer or Christmas.

In winter, it is good to shovel a path to the sanitation well and mark the location of the well with a stick, shovel etc.

If the lid of the well is opened in advance before the day of emptying, it is recommended to put a plastic bag between the lid and snow on top of the lid as insulation, to prevent the lid from freezing shut.

If there is unobstructed access to the well throughout the day, there is no need to be at home in the time of emptying service.

Questions about container emptying or pricing? Our customer service is open on weekdays from 8.00 am to 4.00 pm. (tel. 020 710 9750)

When purchased from us, the delivery of the new container is free of charge in the Jämsä area.

We offer container sizes e.g. 140 l, 240 l, 390 l and 660 litres. Our containers are in accordance with the waste management regulations.

According to the area regulations, the containers need to have wheels, a lid and they must have a sufficient grip height that enables safe emptying with a garbage truck.

Low containers or sack racks that require manual lifting are not ergonomic to use, and are not suitable for safe mechanical emptying.

The emptying interval can be mainly 1, 2, or 4 weeks. Please note, however, that according to waste management regulations, the interval between emptying biowaste can be a maximum of 2 weeks, and mixed waste maximum 4 weeks all year round.

Disposal of mixed waste can also be ordered between 8 weeks for the wintertime.

Emptying of containers takes place according to weekly routes, and the day and time of emptying may change, especially during public holidays.

Please note that the emptying day may differ from the usua also on other weeks.

There must be unobstructed access to the waste container at all times.

Therefore it is important that snow is not piled in front of the containers and that the container is visible and thus easy to find.

Please also note that we only enter into a waste contract with the property owner, not directly to the tenant.


We supply large containers for the collection of larger waste batches.

Container rent pricing is calculated by:

  • Rental duration
  • Total time spent on container delivery and retrieval (starting point is in Jämsänkoski)
  • Quality and weight of waste


Our containers are free of charge for the first 3 days. The container can be pre-ordered for a certain period of time, after which it will be picked up automatically.

Pick-up can also be ordered when the pallet is no longer needed.

The waste is weighed in the reception point in Jämsänkoski and the quality is checked at the time of collection.

The final waste disposal fee is determined by weight of the material. Containers can be found at different side heights as needed. (approx. 16 – 35 m3)
