In addition, a standard refrigerator has been installed in V. Herakleiou’s open space, where all organic waste from butchers, fishmongers, and grocery stores is stored and properly packaged.
When sufficient quantities are collected, they will be picked up by a specialized company, which will use them appropriately for biogas or animal feed production. Overall, Agora’s organizational structure has provided four collection rooms for all materials and a separation and management system.
There are also blue and brown bins in specific shops – for recyclable and organic waste respectively – to make the system work more efficiently. The aim is that the final fraction of mixed waste – what should go into the brown bin and be sent to the landfill – should be minimal to zero.
