Glass waste receiving
The goal of Uusioaines is to help each company find its most fitting way to implement glass recycling. We accept almost all glass waste – and it’s also possible to arrange logistics solutions to collect smaller quantities of glass.
Glass can be delivered directly to the Forssa plant. Smaller windscreens or glass panes can be sent to us, for example, on a wooden pallet as cargo – or delivered to your local waste management company.
Pickup and transport services
We also offer a pallet rental and pick-up service for companies, where we collect and transport your waste glass in transfer lorries. For larger quantities of glass, we can deliver an exchange pallet, whichwe will collect for processing once full.
