Botoșani, December 4

Between December 4-15, the residents of Botoșani, are encouraged to be actively involved in the protection of the environment through the separate collection of electrical and electronic waste.

ECOTIC Together with Botoșani City Hall, Urban Serv, ADI Ecoproces, Eltrans and APM Botoșani organize a waste collection campaign for electrical and electronic equipment (including light bulbs and neon lights).


According to the study ECOTIC from 2022 "The habits of the Romanian population regarding small electrical equipment" only a third of the Romanian population knows of an electrical waste collection point in the vicinity of their residence. To the question addressed to the population regarding the disposal of electrical waste, over 60% of the population said that they intend to hand over for reuse or to a specialized collection point.

In order to meet the population's need for access to solutions to dispose of these types of waste, ECOTIC, together with local partners, is developing a series of collection campaigns aimed at bringing to the attention of local residents the collection points they have at hand .

The residents of Botoșani have at their disposal during the campaign:

  • FREE download from the home of bulky waste (minimum 50 kg of WEEE - eg: washing machine, refrigerator, etc.). The pickup order will be made by phone at the numbers 0231 517 007 and 0747 705 873.

Delivery at Urban Serv municipal collection points, open and outside the campaign:

  • Agroalimentar Market – Vârnav str., no. 22, Piața Viilor parking lot (Monday 09:00 – 16:00)
  • Association no. 36 (Str. Aprodu Purice – behind Magazin Util Gara) (Tuesday and Thursday 09:00 – 16:00)
  • Association no. 63 (Str. Independţei – opposite Serconf) (Wednesday 09:00 – 16:00 and Friday 09:00 – 13:00)


To encourage responsible behavior the organizers offer an instant prize: those who hand in more than 20 kg of electrical waste handed in will receive 2 LED bulbs.
