It is important to understand that this separate collection helps to reduce the harmful effects on the environment, contributes to the efficient use of resources by reusing existing raw materials in this waste and, last but not least, creates jobs. " says Geanina Badicu - Deputy Director of ADI Prahova.

The campaigns are part of the national information campaign "Be with you in the country as well as abroad", organized by ECOTIC in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests. Its purpose is to contribute to the awareness of the general public regarding the responsible behavior towards the collection of WEEE - waste electrical and electronic equipment.
