Recycling Programme

The Paros Municipality inform us that the recycling programme - essential to reduce the amount of garbage going to the landfill sites - is under way. The project is entitled "To Taxidi tis Anakyklosis Archizei! Ela ki esi." (The Journey of Recycling Begins! Join us.) - a title inspired by work on recycling produced by students of all the schools of Paros.

The first step will be the collection of paper, glass, metal (including aluminium) and plastic for recycling. Leaflets are being printed - 10,000 in Greek and 1,500 in English - plus 1,000 posters in both languages to raise awareness and inform the Parian population as to how the collection will be performed.

The Municipality asks for volunteers to assist with the distribution of the leaflets for this project that is so important for our island. If you can help or for further information, contact Mr Ioannis Drakoulakos, responsible for environmental protection at the Dimos, on 02840-23244.
