These recycling bins for paper, plastic etc. are waiting in the field next to the sports stadium in Skopelos town. We hope they will be placed soon so we can make a serious effort and recycle even more. Bins for glass have been placed a long time ago but we should have the other ones next to them.

Mr. George Michalis has taken this initiative and I admire him for it. The meeting point is hotel Skopelos Green Bay in Panormos at 09.00 hours in the morning.

Spotted in the old harbor. A couple of new waste bins for plastic !! paper !! and other waste that is recyclable . There is also a press for the normal waste so it does not need to be collected so often by the municipality. Slowly slowly more of these bins will be placed on the island. If you see one please send me a photo with the location!

In the mood for recycling

Skopelos might not have all the right recycling boxes for the separation of paper, glass, plastic, cans etc. yet but many inhabitants are participating in the recycling process ! This bag with a paper saying recycling I saw on the ring road. It makes me feel happy and confident for the future. To make an effort and tape a paper on the bag saying it is for recycling means people care.

Apostolis from the recycling company told us yesterday that bins for different kinds of waste are coming within two weeks. I cannot wait !

It is nice to get in touch with somebody from the municipality when you have a question, a problem that you need help with. Voula Karatzas has been hired by the municipality and looks at problems, situations that occur in the daily life here. Some things seem very straightforward but you sometimes need to bring it to the attention of the right person. Thanks Voula for the immediate help.
