de | May 13, 2019 | News

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 Giurgiu.

In period May 13 - 18, 2019, ECOTIC in partnership with Giurgiu City Hall, Giurgiu County Council, ADI Giurgiu, APM Giurgiu and ROSAL encourages citizens to properly hand over waste for electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) for recycling, following that for the delivery of waste between 20kg and 40kg cumulated, to receive a voucher worth 10 lei, and for waste over 40 kg cumulated, a voucher worth 20 lei. People who will hand over waste of more than 5 kg accumulated will be automatically entered in the raffle, and can win attractive prizes: vacuum cleaner, meat grinders or citrus juicers.

The collection points are on:

  • Gloriei, no. 5
  • Plantelor, no. 25

At the same time, the inhabitants of Giurgiu can benefit from a free service. Thus, the collection of waste of large and bulky electrical and electronic equipment will be done from home, based on a prior appointment at the phone number 0786 398 516.

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.

"We try to bring the concept of separate collection of recyclable waste as close as possible to the citizens. Through these campaigns we encourage residents to selectively hand over waste that can be recycled, especially waste electrical and electronic equipment and, implicitly, to protect the environment, "says Ortansa Meclea, head of Giurgiu ROSAL.

"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.
