If so it is vital to know that this island is the first zero-waste island. In Tilos, circular economy becomes reality through the innovative and pioneering program Just Go Zero Tilos. Here we all recycle everything and give materials that have been already used a second life! Bellow you will find the instructions for how to manage your waste during your stop or stay on the island.
1. Divide the waste generated on board, into three different bags, as follows:
Recyclable materials: paper, plastic, metal, aluminum, glass. Organic waste: food, fruit or vegetable peels, stones and bones. Non-recyclable materials: soiled papers, personal items such as razors, masks, self tests.
2. While taking a walk, you can place the waste in the Municipality bins which are divided into the same categories, organic, recyclable and non-recyclable materials, according to the relevant marking.
3. For your shopping on the island, choose a fabric bag which you can find at the Zero Point Information Center in Tilos.
4. Visit the Zero Point Tilos Information Center located at the port and learn more about the program.
