Waste Collecting Pipe System To Helsinki Resident Area


Helsinki Kalasatama harbour area will be constructed to house 20 000 residents. Even though no buildings are yet constructed, a project to build a waste collecting pipe system has begun. The system will collect residents' waste into a waste station under a shopping centre.

In total there will be 13 km of pipes with about 180 waste collecting posts. The pipes will move the waste at 70 km/h and the amount of waste handled is estimated to be 21 tons per day. (Source: www.tekniikkatalous.fi, 20.1.2014)
