The Tornio Ekoasema development project

Pohjaset is building the waste management centre Ekoasema in the district of Pirkkiö in Tornio, which is a key part of the company’s development strategy for its recycling and bioenergy businesses. Ekoasema accepts waste from both local companies and individuals, and customers may also purchase processed secondary products after dropping off their waste. The environment and safety are the principles on which our operations are based, which is why we want to offer a convenient waste drop-off service for our customers and also the opportunity to buy secondary products. To better understand what our customers would like to buy at Ekoasema, please let us know what you think we should sell.

The Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment for North Ostrobothnia has granted Pohjaset Recycling Oy a development grant for the development of the recycling business project. The project’s key measures are the investments into the Ekoasema waste management centre in Pirkkiö in Tornio and the wider development of the company’s recycling business.

Pohjaset Recycling Oy develops and produces recycling processes based on its customers’ needs. The goal of the processes is to minimise the amount of waste generated and to produce secondary products for the company’s corporate clients and to sell secondary products to individuals at the Pirkkiö Ekoasema in Tornio. Our company is based on the principle of working continuously to improve our operations by listening to our customers and actively developing our services.

Pohjaset produces recycling and bioenergy services for its customers in a wide area across Finland and Northern Sweden. Our customers include both small and large industrial producers, large waste management and recycling companies and energy suppliers. In addition, we also offer bespoke logistics, terminal and factory services.
