"Recycling Station" is an information and waste collection campaign for electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), launched by Organization ECOTIC in June 2016 and dedicated especially to the rural environment in Romania. After passing through the counties of Iași, Brașov and Argeș, The Recycling Station also starts in Sibiu County, starting from July 18 2017, with the support of the Sibiu Environmental Protection Agency, the Eco Sibiu Intercommunity Development Agency, RECHORALEX, as well as with the informative support of the Sibiu National Environmental Guard.
