Clean Cities, the ECOTIC itinerant campaign, dedicated to collecting echused electrical and electronic equipment in the urban environment, develops a new component dedicated to the rural environment - CLEAN COMMON. Following the same type of approach and mechanism, the campaign will start in the period April 30 - May 4, 2018 in partnership with the ADIS Association and APM Iași, in the locality of Ciurea.
As it is known, Romania has the obligation to reach a target of 45% collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). In this context, ECOTIC continues its awareness-raising efforts among the population in order to hand over WEEE to specialized collection points.
Thus, starting with April 2018, the traditional campaign of ECOTIC, "Clean cities", a campaign aimed at raising awareness in the urban environment, will develop a component dedicated to the rural environment, under the name of CLEAN COMMON. Together with local public and environmental authorities, ECOTIC will inform residents and rural areas across the country of the need to collect WEEE and provide collection points where this waste can be brought and handed over for recycling.
In 2018, the campaign continues in Ciurea, Iași County, with the support of the Ministry of Environment, ADIS Iași, Ciurea Commune City Hall, APM Iași and ECOREC RECYCLING. Between April 23-27, 2018, the inhabitants of Ciurea are encouraged to hand over correctly for recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).
Thus, during the campaign, any resident of Ciurea who will hand over a waste of at least 5kg cumulated at the specially arranged collection points, will receive an instant prize. The collection point is in the Lunca Cetățuii neighborhood, next to the Local Police (schedule 08:00 - 16:00).
For the collection of large and bulky waste electrical and electronic equipment, you can call the phone number 0747 412 240. An ECOREC team will travel and collect WEEE from home, on May 4, 2018.
