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.

"We try to bring the concept of separate collection of recyclable waste as close as possible to the citizens. Through these campaigns we encourage residents to selectively hand over recyclable waste (paper / cardboard, plastics / PET, glass, metal and electrical and electronic equipment) and, implicitly, to protect the environment, ”says Mr. Sava Constantin, mayor of Urziceni.

"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, providing specialized collection points.

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