Hellenic Recovery Recycling Corporation (HE.R.R.Co) also continued its dynamic performance in 2016, achieving in fact the highest quantitative results since the beginning of its operation
Having as its main concern the achievement of the national targets for Packaging Waste, HE.R.R.Co, apart from continuing to develop and expand the Packaging Recycling System, also established sound foundations for the achievement of even higher results in the following years.
94% of the country’s population has up to now been covered by HERRCO’s collaboration with 297 Local Authorities in which 157,000 Blue Bins and more than 7.000 Blue Bells have been placed, while 493 special vehicles have been given to the Municipalities in order to execute daily itineraries to the 32 Recycling Sorting Centers (RSCs). In 2016, almost 550.000 tons of materials were recycled via all HERRCO’s activities, thus achieving a 13% increase in the Packaging Waste quantities processed in comparison to 2015.
Despite adverse circumstances, HERRCO’s activities continue to earn Greek society’s trust. Keeping in trust the positive course of the Packaging Recycling System, we dynamically move forward, always with the valuable support of the Local Authorities, the affiliated companies which keep increasing and mostly of the citizens who participate actively in the recycling projects.
In the following pages, you will find HERRCO’s total work for 2016, while qualitative and mostly quantitative data is presented for the various projects and the development of the Packaging Recycling System.
