Waste transfer stations accept sorted waste that cannot be put in domestic waste bins. These include, for example, large waste items, hazardous waste and electrical equipment.
The maximum amount of waste that can be brought to a waste transfer station in one go is what can be fitted onto a trailer pulled by a car.

Recycling points are meant for small items of sorted recyclable waste. Recycling points are managed by Kymenlaakson Jäte, Suomen Pakkauskierrätys RINKI Oy or the municipalities themselves.
All recycling points collect small metal items and glass packaging. Most also collect paper and cartonboard.
Some also have receptacles for plastic packaging and reusable textiles.
