Waste management and related services affect everyday life and business everywhere. In the circular economy, legislation increasingly guides the focus of waste management. In modern waste management, negative environmental and health effects are effectively avoided, and materials are circulated. A functioning waste service infrastructure is vital for safe living and the circular economy! 

The order of priorities in waste management 

Waste management activities and choices are guided by an order of priority. Waste generation is avoided as a rule, but if it is impossible, the resulting waste is reused and recycled whenever technically or economically feasible.  

The effort to reuse and recycle materials is a key element of the waste management principle. 

The owner of the waste, such as the owner of a property or company, is primarily responsible for the organisation of waste management. Municipalities are responsible for organising waste management of household waste and waste from municipal management and service activities, as well as for the treatment and reception of hazardous waste generated in households.
