Mapping and clean-up of Paleokatritsa seabed
CORFU. Central Corfu and Diapontia Islands Municipality undertook the mapping and clean-up of Paleokastritsa central bay seabed yesterday.
The Municipality carried out the work with valuable assistance from Corfu AHEPA HJ-34 and volunteers from Lakones Cultural Society, Achilleon Diving Centre and Paleokastritsa Boatmen's Association.
Enough waste was removed from the sea to fill 10 large bags, including the following, which were sent for recycling:
200 plastic objects
30 glass objects
5 metal objects
Five bulky objects were also located, which will be removed with suitable equipment as the divers were unable to remove them.
The project was part of Central Corfu and Diapontia Islands Municipality's participation in the European Commission '100 Intelligent Cities Challenge', focussing on 'Waste Management and the Circular Economy'.
