Hellenic Recovery Recycling Corporation

Known as HERRCO for short, the Hellenic Recovery Recycling Corporation has done a formidable job in recent years in terms of promoting recycling in Greece through the placement of blue recycling bins across the country. While the initiative has still not reached many islands and remote places on the mainland, it continues to grow. HERRCO awards hotels that recycle with its own recycling certificate. It has also placed over 7200 large blue-bell shaped containers specifically for recycling glass, accessible to over 16000 hospitality and tourism businesses in the country. For areas with no visible recycling facilities, we would like to ask all visitors to Greece to encourage their hotels to introduce recycling where not available. This will help empower the hotels to approach and pressure their municipalities to introduce recycling facilities by teaming up with HERRCO, ultimately advancing sustainable tourism.
