Corks being recycled

Lagos Municipality has joined forces with environmental association Quercus to promote a campaign to collect used corks.

Lagos has installed dedicated containers, called Rolhinhas, where members of the public can deposit the corks, at Paços do Concelho Séc. XXI, Municipal Library, Mercado da Avenida, Mercado de Santo Amaro and at the Department of Environment and Urban Services of Lagos Câmara.

Other containers are placed at Continente supermarkets in Loulé, Tavira, Portimão and Guia.

This action is part of the Green Cork recycling programme developed

by Quercus.
