The Strovolos Municipality would like to inform residents that the new “Green Waste Collection Point” is now in operation. The centre aims to receive and forward green waste/trimmings to be composted, as well as recycling and/or reusing other domestic material and objects, such as electrical appliances, furniture, toys, etc.

Residents are required to transfer this waste to the “Green Waste Collection Point” themselves since, as previously announced, the Municipality terminated the garden waste collection service and the collection service of trimmings and other waste from plots in April 2019. This waste will be received free of charge for residents.

The “Green Waste Collection Point” in Strovolos is located next to the Nicosia General Hospital roundabout, on Chalkidikis street, (next to “Leroy Merlin” store). See Map here.

In addition, the Municipality would like to inform the public that the “Temporary Green Waste Collection Point” is no longer in operation. This was open until recently in the warehouse area of the Municipality, next to the former “Orphanides hypermarket”. The Strovolos Municipality requests that residents do not place bags with trimmings in front of their houses or litter empty plots or other open areas of the city.  Instead, residents should use the “Green Waste Collection Point”, which has been especially created for this purpose. For additional information regarding this matter, residents can visit the Municipality’s website here or contact the Resident’s Service Bureau at 22470470 during working hours. The cleanliness of the Municipality’s requires everyone’s cooperation. Let’s keep our neighbourhoods clean and healthy.
