Otopeni is the first locality in Romania where the inhabitants have such an application at hand. This comes to complete our information and communication campaign on waste management (Guide for waste management distributed to every home in Otopeni, website www.OtopeniRecicleaza.ro and the Otopeni Recycle Facebook page). I am convinced that we will be able to increase the quantities of recyclable waste collected separately, we will collect and treat separately bulky waste, construction waste, vegetable waste, electrical and electronic waste and other types of waste for which there are recycling / recovery solutions. so we will significantly reduce waste sent to landfills. We are committed that we, Otopeni, meet our targets on waste management assumed by Romania and be a good example for many other communities. "
