The GREENPOINT-MOB is a mobile container consisting of smaller waste containers for all different waste streams (plastic, paper, aluminum, glass, electronic appliances and organic waste). The reason for this idea is the need to cover the recycling in distance and remote areas but also to reinforce the local citizens to start waste recycling through waste collection-at-home. The common problem is the low penetration of recycling in the CBC area and the remote character of the residential areas. Although a lot of efforts have been done, recycling remains in low levels.
With the purchase of two mobile green points (located in the area of Nestorio and Prespes), the environmental trainings in all school levels as well as the public awareness activities in these two areas, DIADYMA will try to improve the management of recycling materials with the appropriate monitoring and evaluation plan.
