Amount of mixed waste increased

In April–June, the total amount of mixed waste grew as the Ämmässuo waste treatment centre received clearly more mixed waste. However, the total waste amounts in Ämmässuo remained the same. The Vantaa waste-to-energy plant received less waste this year than during the same period in the previous year. Ämmässuo received 123,400 tonnes of waste and the Vantaa plant 62,100 tonnes.

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.
