The Municipality of Irakleia in the Region of Serres, completed the maturing studies for the construction of the Municipal Green Point, which is one of the first 10 in the Region of Central Macedonia. The "green light" was given by the issuing of special terms from the Region of Central Macedonia on 5/2/2019. Thereafter, the Municipality of Irakleia proceeded in submitting a financial request to the funding program of Region of Central Macedonia for the construction of Green Points.
EPTA Consultants - Environmental Engineers (www.epta.gr), under a contract with the Municipality of Irakleia, contributed to this development by implementing the project's maturity study and by supporting the Municipality of Irakleia in submitting a financial request to the funding program of Region of Central Macedonia for the construction of Green Points.
The Green Point of Irakleia will be constructed on a municipal area of 4.000m2 and will provide an organized space where citizens can bring recyclables, edible oils and fats, electrical and electronic equipment waste, textile waste, biodegradable garden and park waste, bulky waste as well as small quantities of small repairs and household maintenance. The operation of the green points helps to promote separate waste collection.
Citizens will be able to transport their waste there and by following a circular route inside the site, they will be guided with the help of appropriate signs to the specific dumping locations for the separate collection of their recyclable materials which will then be prepared for re-use and recycling. Moreover, in the Green Point various events and activities related to environmental education and awareness can take place.
