Clean Cities, the ECOTIC itinerant campaign, dedicated to the collection of used electrical and electronic equipment in the urban environment, develops a new component dedicated to the rural environment - CLEAN COMMON. Following the same type of approach and mechanism, the campaign will start in the period May 7–11, 2018 in partnership with the ADIS Association and APM Iași, in the town of Holboca.
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.
Thus, starting with April 2018, the traditional campaign of ECOTIC, "Clean cities", a campaign aimed at raising awareness in the urban environment, will develop a component dedicated to the rural environment, under the name of CLEAN COMMON. Together with local public and environmental authorities, ECOTIC will inform residents and rural areas across the country of the need to collect WEEE and will provide collection points where this waste can be brought and handed over for recycling.
In 2018, the campaign continues in Holboca, Iași County, with the support of the Ministry of Environment, ADIS Iași, Holboca City Hall, APM Iași and ECOREC RECYCLING. Between 7–11 May 2018, the people of Holboca are encouraged to properly hand over waste for electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) for recycling.
Thus, during the campaign, any resident of Holboca who will hand over a waste of at least 5kg cumulated at specially arranged collection points, will receive an instant prize. The collection point is at the headquarters of Holboca City Hall (schedule 08:00 - 16:00).
For the collection of large and bulky waste electrical and electronic equipment, you can call the phone number 0747 412 240. An ECOREC team will travel and collect WEEE from home, on May 11, 2018.
