We have witnessed a good practice of protecting the marine and coastal environment the past days in the area of Thessaloniki. The overwhelming amount of 40 tons of tyres were collected, removed and transferred to recycling facilities by a private company. The initiative was taken by the Head of the regional department of Development and Environment of Central Macedonia, while synergies were built with the project «plastic busters MPAS», run by the Ministry of Environment and Energy.
An interesting question is if this initiative is included in an approved regional cleaning and remediation programme regarding the coasts of the area of Thessaloniki, how it is funded and if it will be continued with more supporting activities in the same direction.
