Bucharest, December 08.

ECOTIC (www.ecotic.ro) together with hotnews (www.hotnews.ro ) organizes on December 15 at 15:00  the online event "Retrospective 2020. Forecasts 2021 in WEEE management".

We organize this online seminar by approaching two perspectives: how the collection and recycling of electrical waste took place in the conditions of the pandemic and what will happen in 2021, when the national target will increase to 65% from 45% and penalties of 4 lei will be imposed / kg (target not reached), the highest penalty in the European Union.

In this European context, the WEEE Forum, an organization made up of Producer Responsibility Transfer Organizations (TROs) around the world, of which ECOTIC is a part, presents this year a new vision that emphasizes the need to review the current extended producer responsibility system. , including the method of calculating the imposed targets.

The event will be attended by representatives of the most important actors involved in the management of the waste management system of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE): authorities, retail, sanitation, collectors, OTRs.
