"We try to bring the concept of separate collection of recyclable waste as close as possible to the inhabitants of TImisoara. Through these campaigns, we encourage citizens to selectively hand over recyclable waste, especially waste electrical and electronic equipment, and, implicitly, to protect the environment, ”said Marius Ungurean, ECOTIC Western Area Coordinator.

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.

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

In 2017 and 2018, ECOTIC carried out over 35 campaigns that informed over 400.000 people.
