Rahumäe waste transfer station temporarily closed for renovation

On 22 May, Rahumäe waste transfer station will be closed for one month due to necessary construction works; customers will be directed to other waste transfer stations during this time.

Deputy Mayor of Tallinn Joosep Vimm stresses that other waste transfer stations in the city will remain open. “Hopefully, most of the city residents will have completed their major spring cleaning and gardening works by the second half of May,” says Vimm. “Before the temporary closure of the Rahumäe waste transfer station, we will be able to organise another free collection campaign for bulky waste as well. We will make sure to keep the waste transfer station closed for as short a period of time as possible.”

The retaining wall by the driveway needs extensive renovation, the construction of which requires closure of the access road. Additionally, the territory of the Rahumäe waste transfer station will be cleaned of the accumulated rubbish during the renovation works.

Rein Kalle, Manager of the Tallinn Waste Centre, is glad that the leaning retaining wall will be rebuilt and the driveway will become safe for visitors. “However, we must close our most visited waste transfer station during this time, since we don’t consider it right to divert traffic to the narrow roads of the cemetery,” says Kalle.

Tallinn Waste Centre advises customers to go to the Paljassaare waste transfer station during the construction works in order not to overload the Pärnamäe and Pääsküla waste stations. Employees of the Rahumäe waste transfer station will lend a hand in other waste stations and the container park of the waste stations will also be supplemented.
