Orase Curate (Clean Cities), the itinerant ECOTIC campaign, dedicated to the collection of used electrical and electronic equipment from the urban environment, starts in 2018. After 29 campaigns that informed about 300.000 people and led to the collection of 50 tons of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) during March 5-30, 2018, the campaign “Clean Cities" takes place in Galați.  

As it is known, Romania has the obligation to reach a 45% waste collection target for 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.

"Clean cities" is the ECOTIC campaign that pursues this goal in the urban environment. Together with local public and environmental authorities, ECOTIC informs residents of dozens of cities across the country about the need to collect WEEE and provides collection points where this waste can be brought and handed over for recycling.

In 2018, the campaign starts in Galati, with the support of the Ministry of Environment, Galati City Hall, Galati Environmental Protection Agency, ECOSAL, Apa Canal Company, Transurb and the Galati National Environmental Guard. Between March 5-30, 2018, the inhabitants of Galați municipality are encouraged to hand over correctly for recycling the waste of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

Thus, during the campaign, any resident of Galați who will hand over a waste of at least 10 kg accumulated at specially arranged collection centers, will receive an instant prize.

Here is the location and schedule of the collection centers in Galati:

- Green Point - Drumul Viilor, no.1, from Monday to Saturday, from 8:00 to 16:00, and on Sunday, from 8:00 to 12:00;

- Nufărului Street, no. 24-26, Monday to Friday, from 7:00 to 14:00;

- Barboşi sorting station, Monday to Friday, 7:00 to 14:00.

For the collection of large and bulky electrical and electronic equipment waste, you can call the telephone numbers 0236 312 282 and 0372 741 887. A SP ECOSAL GALAŢI team will travel and collect WEEE from home.

 Both the home pick-up service and the collection points mentioned above are available on a permanent basis, not just during the campaign.

The campaign in Galati continues, in 2018, the national program "Clean Cities", an itinerant program of the ECOTIC Organization, dedicated to WEEE collection in urban areas.
