Between March 21-27, 2016, ECOTIC is running a campaign to promote the first street collection points for small electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) waste in Bucharest. Residents in the vicinity of red WEEE collection containers will be informed and encouraged to hand over waste by organizing a prize raffle. Camp S3attractive.

On March 21, ECOTIC launched a campaign aimed at informing and promoting the first street system for collecting small WEEE at the level of Sector 3 in Bucharest. It is a system of 15 red containers, placed next to the already well-known containers for collecting plastic, paper and glass.

ECOTIC, in partnership with the City Hall of Sector 3, manages to set in motion again a viable solution for WEEE collection, in the context in which Bucharest is a city that is in great need of waste collection solutions, being on one of the last places between European capitals in terms of collection performance. In addition, starting this year, Romania has a mandatory target for WEEE collection at national level of 40%.

Between March 21-23, door hangers were distributed near the street collection points for WEEE. Between March 24-25, the information area will increase, distributing information materials in areas with high traffic on the entire surface of Sector 3 (street, parks).

Thus, the collection actions organized by ECOTIC are being prepared, which will take place on March 26 and 27, between 9.00 and 17.00. Residents of Sector 3 will be encouraged to come and hand over waste of electrical and electronic equipment (televisions, radios, computers, toasters, old vacuum cleaners, etc.), thus being entered in a raffle that has as prizes 3 LCD TVs. The draw will take place on March 28, 2016.
