In November 2010 of the green waste composting facility of our company Premier Shukuroglou Cyprus started. This unit is the first of its kind in Cyprus, having specialized in producing high quality compost using only plant origin material. The unit is located in the industrial area Geri, Nicosia and operates under license by the competent government authorities.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO RECYCLE GREEN WASTE NOW?

1. It's simply a waste not to! Moreover, as is evident from the experience with the materials managed by Green Dot, the cost of sorting is minimal. It only requires a slight change in our habits.

2. Recycling make economic sense: The garden waste is estimated in Cyprus to be 10% of urban waste. Since the opening of the new integrated waste management center in the Koshi and given the high fees charged by the local authorities exceeding € 70/ton of waste, local authorities have every interest in trying to minimize the volumes delivered there. But this can not be done from one day to another and Larnaca region residents pay today a very high price. Other areas of Cyprus are soon to follow. It is therefore in everyone's interest to start now the sorting and recycling process. Here is why:

• Our unit charges a low gate fee, varying from €5.00 to €15.00 per van or truck load, according to size.

• Access to our unit is very easy. It is located in the Industrial Area Geri.

3. The use of compost is good for the environment. The soil of Cyprus is low in organic matter, just about 0.50% to 0.80%. In the fertile northern countries it is 1.5% - 2%. The arid conditions on the island, combined with a significant reduction in forest areas, create conditions leading to further reduction of organic matter and eventually to desertification. Therefore, the more we make compost and apply it the better.

4. The EU strongly encourages the use of compost and discourages the use of peat moss. Extensive extraction of peat from soils in northern countries entails not only severe ecological damage there, but also contributes to the greenhouse effect. Important amounts of carbon dioxide formed over the centuries under the peat are released in the air as a result of this extraction.
