The installation of new recycling bins for electrical appliances in 12 areas of the island, The municipality of Syros has started – Syros.
Guided by the preservation and improvement of the quality of our natural environment, the prudent and rational use of natural resources and the protection of public health, the Municipality of Syros - Ermoupolis through…….. of the Solid Waste Management Agency, proceeded to recycle small electrical and electronic devices, which either plug in or run on battery power, including light bulbs.
Due to the rapid technological development and the great reduction of production costs, electrical items are spreading rapidly, resulting in a rapid increase in the volume of their waste.
The benefits of device recycling are many:
• Waste volume is reduced.
• The environment is not burdened by hazardous substances contained in the devices, when after the end of their useful life they do not suffer proper environmental management.
• By processing our electrical and electronic waste, usable materials are recovered, such as metals, glass and plastic, which are reused in the production process.
• By reducing production processes, energy is saved and industrial pollution is reduced.
• Manufacturers who produce products largely from recycled materials have the ability to reduce the production costs of their products., as they reduce their needs for raw materials and energy sources, in equipment and facilities Long term, lower cost for industry means lower prices for consumers.
The new recycling bins have already been installed in :
