Amount of landfill waste increased in Ämmässuo

In January–March, the Ämmässuo waste treatment centre received more waste this year than during the same period the year before. The Vantaa waste-to-energy plant received as much waste as the year before. The amount of waste in Ämmässuo grew to 80,100 tonnes and remained at the 84,000 tonnes in Vantaa.

The Vantaa waste-to-energy plant was opened in 2014, which significantly decreased the waste volumes delivered to Ämmässuo. The Vantaa waste-to-energy plant receives more mixed waste than the Ämmässuo waste treatment centre, but Ämmässuo has received more waste on the whole.
