Recycling news

Skopelosnews spoke to Apostolis from the recycling plant the other day and he told us that he is talking to the municipality about putting bins all over the island for plastic bottles too.
The collection of glass objects like bottles is going very well. Hopefully the municipality understands how vital it is to start the collection of plastic too on this island. Already many people go to the plant and leave the materials that can be recycled. The plant is on the way to the Agios Reginos monastery, on the left. There is a green net hanging in front of the entrance.
At the moment the recycling plant is also using the pressing machine for the plastic that has been collected. There is a truck which drives through the town every day and collects items for recycling.
