Recycling in Agnondas

Rose has send us these lovely photographs of the recycling point which her landlady in Agnondas has set up on her own and which works very well.

Rose has also attached a recycling basket to the seats near the bus stop in Agnondas and she empties the basket regularly but the basket was thrown in the garbage the other day which is disappointing.

I think many people are waiting for recycling collection points for plastic, papers and tins.

The cleaning of beaches, streets, harbors and springs takes place every year in Greece. The event is called let’s do it. This year the municipality asked many different groups to take on a beach or an area on the island. They could choose themselves.

Skopelos has already started with the school children in Glossa cleaning the village. With them were teachers and municipal board members. On Saturday Agnondas and Limnonari will be cleaned and on Sunday the harbor of Skopelos and Stafylos and Velanio. Gloves and plastic bags will be provided. Anything that can be recycled will be separated from the other garbage. Glyfoneri beach was supposed to be cleaned on Monday but we are not sure if anybody went. Glysteri beach needs cleaning but the beach was not put on the list. That is a shame because especially because the beaches on this side of the island need better cleaning. There is much more garbage there !!
