  • Description

    Description

    We are looking for a couple of helpers; WE are a volunteer based Recycling Center in the small village of Arillas, Corfu Island, Greece and the volunteers will be our angels!
    The center's aim is to make Arillas one of the cleanest villages of the island, we have already attained a huge change in the last year, so that the village has been featured in newspapers articles, but in the summer we need more help.
    Many recycling centers of this sort have popped up recently on the island to take a private initiative in solving the trash problem affecting the whole island.
