Greek operator OTE and its subsidiaries Cosmote and Germanos collected over 50 tonnes of electronic equipment in the year to June, as part of the group recycling programme. This includes batteries, cartridges and devices for mobile and fixed communications, collected at 500 locations throughout Greece. The company donates EUR 1,000 to environmental organisations for every ton of phones collected. The recycling programme will continue in 2014, supported by an awareness campaign on social media and the group's websites.
