The separate collection of biowaste was launched on July 29th, 2014 in the selected communities of Pyrgos & Panormos Bay, Tinos island. A raising awareness and training event took place in the afternoon of the same day, at the Cultural Centre of Pyrgos. The event signified the launching of the source-sorting of biowaste and the simultaneous initiation of the operation of the composting system. Various dissemination materials were prepared, i.e. posters for the event, posters including the project progress and the results of the recycling scheme, press releases which were published to all local media as well as an agenda. Furthermore, during the informative event the residents of the implementation area of the project were provided with the relevant indoor equipment, including a kitchen caddie (10-L capacity for households or 40-L capacity for industrial, commercial and institutional facilities) and a set of biodegradable bags.
