Recycling Station, the itinerant ECOTIC campaign, dedicated to the collection of used electrical and electronic equipment from rural and small urban areas, continues its route in 2018. After passing through 2017 counties in 7, informing approximately 200.000 people and collecting 100 tons of WEEE (waste electrical equipment and electronic), starting with March 15, 2018, the campaign “Recycling Station" starts in Hunedoara County.
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 efforts to raise awareness among the population in order to hand over WEEE to specialized collection points.
„Recycling Station" is the ECOTIC campaign that pursues this objective mainly in rural and small urban areas. Together with local public and environmental authorities, ECOTIC informs the inhabitants of the localities in each county visited on the need to collect WEEE and provides a mobile collection point - Caravan ECOTIC - where this waste can be brought and handed over for recycling.
In 2018, the campaign continues in Hunedoara County, with the support of the Ministry of Environment, ADI Hunedoara and Rechoralex. Between March 15-29, 2018, the first stage of the Hunedoara campaign will take place, being visited five localities, according to the following program:
- GURASADA, MARCH 15-17, 2018 (in the courtyard of Gurasada middle school)
- OKAY, MARCH 18-20, 2018 (in front of Dobra City Hall)
- Vetel, MARCH 21-23, 2018 (in the parking lot of the VEŢEL cultural center)
- BABY, MARCH 24-26, 2018 (in the fair area)
- Calan, MARCH 27-29 (in the parking lot of the House of Culture)
To encourage the correct delivery for recycling of used electricity and electronics, each resident who will bring to the ECOTIC Caravan at least 5 kg of such waste will receive an instant prize and will participate in a raffle with attractive prizes consisting of gift cards.
Taking home bulky equipment (TV, refrigerators, washing machines) is free based on telephone scheduling at the phone number 0732.148.550. The appointment will be made on the first day of the campaign in each locality.
