Clean Cities, the ECOTIC itinerant campaign, dedicated to the collection of used electrical and electronic equipment from the urban environment, makes a new stop, this time, in Braila.

In period April 8 - 20, 2019, ECOTIC in partnership with the City Hall of Braila through SUPAGL Braila and RER Ecologic Service Brăila SRL, encourages citizens to properly hand over for recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), following that for the delivery of waste of maximum 35kg cumulated to receive a voucher worth 10 lei, and for waste over 35 kg cumulated a voucher of 20 lei.

The collection center is located on Pietății Street, opposite Hospital 3, in the Small Complex "La Rotunda", being open between April 15 and 19 (9: 00-10: 00 and 17: 00-19: 00)

At the same time, the inhabitants of Brăila can benefit from a free service. Thus, the collection of waste of large and bulky electrical and electronic equipment will be done free of charge from home, based on a prior appointment at the phone numbers 0239 611 682, 0766 300 800. An RER team in Brăila will travel and collect WEEE between April 19-20, between 8:00 and 15:00.

Romania, as an EU member state, has the obligation to reach a target of 45% collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) by 2020. In this regard, ECOTIC continues its efforts to raise awareness among the population.

"The Clean Cities campaign returns to Brăila to continue raising awareness of the importance of separate collection of recyclable waste, especially waste electrical and electronic equipment by providing residents with a collection point and pick-up services from home," said Ms. Gina Agoston, Economic Director of RER Ecologic Service Braila.

"Clean Cities" is the ECOTIC campaign that pursues this goal in the urban environment. Together with local public and environmental authorities, ECOTIC has informed and continues to inform residents of dozens of cities across the country about the need to collect WEEE, providing specialized collection points.

In 2017 and 2018, ECOTIC carried out over 35 campaigns that informed over 400.000 people.
