Pegeia Municipality joined in packaging recycling program of Green Dot Cyprus. Many efforts were made by our municipality and the Green Dot Cyprus to ensure the success of the project. The results have much room for improvement since the past years were collected by our municipality several tonnes of packaging. On this occasion we would like to thank those who participate in the program.
The reasons why we should recycle are well known to all. In about three years the landfill in Marathounta will be upgraded into a waste management center . Based on the Larnaca - Famagusta experiences that will multiply the cost of waste management . This cost will be added to the citizens's bills of each Municipality and Community in Paphos. A typical example, of Larnaca and Famagusta, is that 10 tons of household waste pays about 800 euros, while the same amount of waste in Marathounta, currently, pays 370 euros therefore it is essential that we all try to reduce as much as possible waste that leeds to these centers, this will benefit each one with reduced "garbage taxes" . This can be done by participating in recycling programs . Lets not forget that packages are 30 % of the total weight of our waste . We are confident that we will have your help to achieve even more.
