Evidence of the coronavirus year was visible at waste collection points and in water meters

The increase in the amount of waste and water consumption compared to the previous year is most likely partly due to people spending more time at home because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Last year, our tenants used roughly four per cent more water than in 2019. On average, the daily water consumption was 148.5 litres per tenant. 

The amount of waste that accumulated in Heka’s buildings was roughly 1.4 per cent more than the previous year. Mixed waste accounted for roughly 77.5 per cent of all waste collected. Although the calculated amount of mixed waste also increased, its proportion of all waste accumulated was still 0.7 per cent less than the previous year. In other words, Heka’s tenants sorted their waste slightly more precisely than before. 

However, waste management costs still increased by almost half a million euros. This is due in particular to the increase in the collection fees for mixed waste and the increase in the amount of bulky waste abandoned at waste collection points. 

The increase in the amount of waste and water consumption compared to the previous year is most likely partly due to people spending more time at home because of the coronavirus pandemic. The larger amount of waste is also explained by the increase in the number of Heka apartments and tenants.

Total energy consumption was 0.83 per cent less than the previous year.

The Heka website shows the waste amounts and waste management costs for the majority of the locations, in addition to the details of their consumption of cold water, district heat and electric energy.
