Over 56,000 tonnes of packaging recycled in 2017

Last year, more than 56,200 tonnes of packaging were recycled, some 135 per cent over contractual obligations, Green Dot Cyprus said on Wednesday.
“The year ended with the recycling of 56,200 tonnes of packaging, which means that the goal provided by the legislation of 41,600 tonnes was exceeded by 135 per cent,” a Green Dot statement said.

“This success is thought to be even more important if one takes into account the lack of an institutional framework for mandatory recycling by the public,” it added.
“By the end of 2017, the collection of recycling packages programme was servicing about 82 per cent of the country`s population, covering 26 municipalities and 50 communities.”
