de | April. 16, 2018 | News

Clean cities, the itinerant ECOTIC campaign, dedicated to the collection of used electrical and electronic equipment in urban areas, continues its route in 2018. After 29 campaigns that informed approximately 300.000 people and led to the collection of 50 tons of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment ) in 2017, during April 16-20, 2018, the campaign “Clean Cities" takes place in Ploiești and Slănic Prahova.  

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 awareness-raising efforts 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 continues in Ploiești and Slănic Prahova, with the support of the Ministry of Environment, Ploiești City Hall, Slănic City Hall and the Agency for Environmental Protection Prahova. Between April 16-20, 2018, the inhabitants of Ploiești and Slănic are encouraged to hand over correctly for recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

Thus, during the campaign, any resident of the two localities who will hand over a waste of at least 5kg accumulated at the designated collection points, will receive an instant prize. The collection points are located as follows:

Ploiesti:

Temporary points: North Complex and in front of the Central Halls
Fixed point: Str. Pool (warehouse and car column)

Slavic:

Temporary point: Central Park Parking

The collection schedule is from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 to 16:00.

To pick up large and bulky waste electrical and electronic equipment, you can call the phone number 0244.546.627. A team will travel and pick up WEEE from home.
