A step towards more sustainable recycling — tenants of Teekkari Village can now recycle their plastic waste

AYY strives to promote the principles of sustainable development in housing and we want to enable our residents to sort waste as ecologically as possible. Containers for plastic are located near the following buildings:

  • Jämeräntaival 3, 5, 6 ja 7
  • Otakaari 18 ja Otakaari 20
  • Otaranta 8.

Instructions for recycling plastic have been distributed on the notice boards in all the properties mentioned above. Plastic waste is collected in Molok waste bins at recycling points.

Why recycle plastic waste?

Plastic packages are collected and turned into raw materials for new plastic products. This is how materials can be kept in the cycle, as a part of the circular economy. Collected plastic packages are turned, for instance, into plastic bags, flowerpots and buckets.

How to recycle plastic?

Most of plastic packaging can be recycled. Empty plastic packages for food stuff, such as yoghurt containers and packages for cold cuts, cheese and convenience food can be put into the collection container for plastic packages. Empty shampoo and soap bottles and plastic bags can also be put in the collection containers. Rinse or wipe clean empty packages, if necessary. It is clean enough if there is no odour nuisance.

Dispose of other plastic products, such as broken sledges, toys, watering cans and kitchen utensils in the mixed waste container.

Applications for the renovated Jämeräntaival 3 B apartments are open from the 11th of March to the 24th of March!

In May 2019 the renovation of Jämeräntaival 3 B will be completed and most of the apartments in the building are shared studios. Residents can move in to the apartments starting from the 2nd of May 2019. 

The AYY Board has decided that all AYY’s members with valid right of residence are given equal opportunity to apply for the Jämeräntaival 3 B apartments. Lots will be drawn to determine who gets an apartment. 

The application process for the apartments differs somewhat from the usual: 

  • You can apply for the apartments between the 11th of March and 24th of March 2019. 
  • The place in the queue for all applications submitted within the deadline will be drawn by lot. 
  • The lots will be drawn within different score groups. 
  • After the 24th of March 2019, the applications will continue according to the normal queuing process. 

A shared studio apartment is a cross between a shared apartment and a studio. Each tenant has a personal room with their own toilet/bathroom and a kitchenette, equipped with a fridge, freezer, oven and stove. Keeping the communal spaces clean and tidy is the responsibility of the tenants. 

Read the application instructions here. 

Find out more about the apartments and send your application to us via Domo starting Monday 11th March.
