"Campaign Orase Curate (Clean Cities) has a very important role, that of informing the inhabitants of the urban environment on the importance of collecting separately, especially of electrical and electronic waste, and of providing collection points or promoting the already existing ones ”declares Florin Catz , ECOTIC zonal coordinator.

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.

"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 in the first part of 2018, ECOTIC carried out 31 campaigns that informed approximately 320.000 people and led to the collection of 50 tons of WEEE.
