Starting with January 2020, Romanians are encouraged to "be in the country as well as abroad" and to hand over waste electrical and electronic equipment responsibly.
Between August 3 and 7, 2020, ECOTIC, ADI Teleorman and Alexandria City Hall urge the inhabitants of Alexandria to properly hand over for recycling waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) and that each person who delivers waste of at least 5kg accumulated to be automatically registered raffle, having the chance to win one of the following prizes: vacuum cleaner, multicooker, waffle maker, drilling and screwdriver, screwdriving and drilling accessories, tablets or fitness bracelets.
Residents of Alexandria benefit from the free home collection service of large and bulky WEEE, calling the numbers 0247 312 763, 0247 314 314, 0723 803 131. The collection from home will be done in compliance with health and safety requirements.
"We want citizens to understand the importance of separate collection of waste electrical and electronic equipment and to learn about the correct ways to dispose of it. Many of these WEEE contain toxic substances that harm not only the environment but also our health, which is why it is important to dispose of them correctly, ensuring that they end up in recycling. The ECOTIC campaign does just that, urging citizens to hand over used electronics responsibly, thus protecting the environment. ” declares Mrs. Adelina Dumitrașcu - SOUTH area coordinator, ECOTIC.
"Clean Cities" Alexandria is part of the national information campaign "Be with you in the country as well as abroad", organized by ECOTIC in partnership with the Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests. Its purpose is to contribute to the awareness of the Romanian public regarding the correct behavior towards a type of waste: WEEE - waste electrical and electronic equipment.
Through it, ECOTIC aims to promote good practices in the European Union and to inform the Romanian public on separate collection solutions for electrical and electronic waste available to all: electronics and home appliances stores, municipal collection points and campaigns on which ECOTIC carries out regularly, in urban and rural areas.
