Household waste and biowaste

Monitoring waste streams and recycling rates in a sub-national level is important in order to provide informative data for local decision-making as well as to find ways to reach the ambitious EU waste recycling targets nationally.

Regional amounts and recycling rates for municipal solid waste from households have now been estimated in a similar way in different regions in Finland.

Our aim is to provide information on the progress of the circular economy as well as improve the availability and quality of regional data on waste.

Monitoring household waste consists of a questionnaire for the public waste management companies and supplementary information from producer associations, national statistics and estimations.
