The Programme for the Collection and Transportation of Plastic, Metal and Glass Packaging that is used and thrown away is now starting in public areas, food establishments, tourist facilities, municipal services etc. The recycling bins that are being put in place are special metal bases with a slot in the top for packaging to be posted in. Each bin is clearly marked as being only for the recycling of plastic and metal or glass packaging.
The Programme for the Recycling of Plastic, Metal and Glass Packaging has been approved by the Greek state (Ministry of the Environment & Energy) to organise and promote the recycling of packaging nationwide with the use of the Integrated Recycling Reward Centres under Law 4496/2017.
The collection of plastic, metal and glass packaging takes place in partnership with social cooperative enterprises, which receive the collected packaging and recycle it at Recycling Reward Banks or Environmental Education and Recycling Reward Parks.
The Programme for the Recycling of Plastic, Metal and Glass Packaging is implemented with the support, participation and under the auspices of the Panhellenic Federation of Restaurant Enterprises (POESE) and the Hellenic Confederation of Professionals, Craftsmen & Merchants (GSEVEE).
