With the support of the Ministry of Environment and the City Halls of each locality, the campaign will stopbetween 14-25 May 2018 in the following localities:

Residents of these localities are encouraged to properly hand over waste for electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) for recycling. Waste collection will be done directly from home, between 8:00 and 16:00.

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.
