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 are trying to bring the concept of separate collection of recyclable waste in most cities in Romania. Through these campaigns we encourage the people of Siret to selectively hand over waste that can be recycled, especially waste electrical and electronic equipment, and, implicitly, to protect the environment "says Mr. Paul - Cezar Perlanovschi, Director of Communal Services Siret.

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

In 2018, ECOTIC carried out 53 collection and awareness campaigns, which informed over 320.000 people.
