Zakynthos:- New garbage truck for our council.

In regards to progression in our waste management system good news comes our way.

The Municipality of Zakynthos has brought a new garbage truck for 148,499.99 which includes VAT, in order to renew its fleet which to say the least is falling apart.


The economic committee of the Municipality approved the expenditure for the supply of the garbage truck, type “mill” and has a capacity of 12 cubic meters. The money was raised from the grant of the “Philodimos 2” program. The amount of 225,000 euros was initially budgeted. After the challenge of interest which was answered by 5 interested parties, the most advantageous offer was selected, of 148,499.99
