A medium-sized Greek company is active in the field of recycling since 1994. The company undertakes collection and the management of solid waste for municipalities, large companies etc. The company is dealing with the sorting of recyclable solid waste regarding paper and glass. The company aims to recycle the packaging materials as well as to the promotion of recyclable materials in Greece and abroad, like paper industries, plastic industries, metal industries, etc.
