CORFU. Two vehicles to collect from brown bins and two for paper and cardboard have been added to the fleet of trucks and will begin operating in the next few days.

(Central Corfu Municipality) Today, Mayor Meropi Ydraiou and Deputy Mayor for Cleaning Services Yiannis Seremetis received four new rubbish trucks, two for brown waste bins and two for cardboard and paper.

These four new vehicles have been added to the municipality's fleet and will begin operating in the coming days.

The municipality now has 40 new vehicles and rubbish trucks through leasing, as part of the "FILODIMOS" programme and the ESPA programme. Additionally, two street sweeper vehicles have been put into operation.

1,000 coffee waste bins for distribution to businesses and elsewhere, 1,000 yellow recycling bins, 500 new green waste bins, and 250 traditional clay bins were procured in the first three years of Mayor Meropi Ydraiou's term of office..

The Municipality of Central Corfu, a municipality that, as Mayor Meropi Ydraiou states, was literally established and operated from scratch since the beginning of her term, is continuously strengthening its infrastructure in cleanliness and recycling.

In a statement, Deputy Mayor for Cleaning Services Yiannis Seremetis said:

"Every day, we are doing better, that's our message. We are constantly improving and enhancing our infrastructure in cleanliness and recycling. With this infrastructure in place, we can now implement a comprehensive and reliable recycling programme.

Because we let our actions speak for us, we have a plan for the new five-year term, while some others only have a past, a grey past that held Corfu back. But on Sunday, Corfu is moving forward, leaving behind the tired faces of yesterday with divisive words. Those who want to drag Corfu back to a past of inertia and decline."
