Kierrätys­keskus shop visits

Welcome to Kierrätyskeskus! With us, you can make a shop visit, which is fun, interesting and educational.

Shop visits in general

You can choose to visit any of the larger Kierrätyskeskus shops. You can go on a self-guided visit to any shop.

Choose the shop visit that suits you best:

  • Guided tour for daycares, schools and educational institutions, or for those interested in Kierrätyskeskus as a workplace, at a Kierrätyskeskus of your choice.
  • A paid visit by an environmental educator to the Nihtisilta shop, sorting centre and workshops.
  • A self-guided visit to a Kierrätyskeskus of your choice, using ready-made materials.

Free visits for daycares, schools and educational institutions

Free visits for daycares, schools and educational institutions include approx. a 15–30 minute shop presentation. During the visit, you will get an idea of what goes on in the Kierrätyskeskus shop and what steps are taken to get the goods to their new owners. The maximum group size is 20 people.

We are also happy to introduce Kierrätyskeskus’s activities to groups interested in Kierrätyskeskus as a workplace.
Arrange a free visit in advance with the shop’s contact person.

Visits led by an environmental educator for everyone

Book a circular economy visit led by an environmental educator to the Nihtisilta shop in Espoo!

The paid visit includes a tour of Kierrätyskeskus’s shop, workshop and sorting centre, through which more than 5 million products are circulated for reuse every year. During the one-hour tour, we will also discuss the significance of reuse and consider the consumption choices we can make to help save natural resources.

Children and adult groups alike are welcome to visit, and remote guided tours are also possible.
