Tallinn waste treatment plants switch to shorter winter opening hours

Starting from November 1, Tallinn's waste treatment plants will switch to a winter schedule. All four waste treatment plants - in Pääsküla, Rahumäe, Paljassaare, and Pärnamäe - will continue to be open seven days a week, but their opening hours will be shorter during the autumn-winter period.

"Tallinn residents can still choose a suitable day of the week to visit the waste treatment plants. We are shortening the opening hours for the winter period, as fewer people visit during this time," said Deputy Mayor Joosep Vimm. "It's also worth noting that at the Paljassaare and Pääsküla waste treatment plants, you can both give away and take usable items, and in Pääsküla, there's a repair workshop open two days a week. Many items don't have to become trash yet and can find a new owner or simply have a longer lifespan."

From Wednesday, November 1, Tallinn's waste treatment plants will be open on weekdays from 14:00 to 19:00 and on weekends from 10:00 to 15:00. The waste treatment plants will be closed on public holidays, including the upcoming winter holidays like Christmas (December 24-26), New Year (January 1), and the Independence Day (February 24).

The Paljassaare waste treatment plant is located in the Põhja-Tallinn district at Paljassaare põik 5, the Pärnamäe waste treatment plant is in the Pirita district at Ristaia tee 8/Pärnamäe tee 36, the Pääsküla waste treatment plant is in Nõmme at Raba 40, and the Rahumäe waste treatment plant is also in Nõmme at Rahumäe tee 5a.

The waste treatment plants are managed by the Tallinn Waste Center. For more detailed information, you can visit the center's website at
