It is Green Dot Cyprus’ strategic choice not to develop the activities of recovery, sorting or management of packaging material. On the contrary, almost all the activities required for the functioning of the System are outsourced to the private sector but they can also be provided by the Local Authorities with which Green Dot Cyprus cooperates.
The provision of these services is done through open competition (tenders), something which ensures healthy competition on the one hand and on the other, ensures that Green Dot Cyprus performs its projects with credible Organisations, which are in a position to offer best value for the money paid by the System.
It is therefore easily understood that the success of the Green Dot Cyprus’ System depends to a large extent on the quality of its cooperation with private Organisations for waste management and on the response of these Organisations to the needs and aspirations of the System.
Recycle your Commercial Packaging
If relatively large quantities of packaging remain in the premises of your company, you may contact a Green Dot Cyprus licensed handler/associate to decide together on the best way to collect them. The handler is subsidized by Green Dot Cyprus for every ton of material collected from the premises of its members.
But because their costs vary depending on the location of the premises that must be served, the quantity and the packaging material to be collected, the equipment that might possibly be needed and the prices of recyclable material, it is possible that the member may ask you to cover part of the cost or may return a percentage of the profit that is made to you.
It is important to point out that in the case where a certain member may be burdened with additional cost that members will not pay double as commercial packaging is charged less than household packaging.
