THE “RECYCLING STATION” CAMPAIGN STARTS IN SIBIU COUNTY
The Recycling Station is an awareness campaign that focuses on WEEE collection, launched by ECOTIC in June 2016 and dedicated to Romania’s rural and urban areas. After traveling through Iasi, Brasov and Arges Counties, the Recycling Station has started its journey in Sibiu County, beginning with July 18th 2017, with the support of the Environment Protection Agency Sibiu, the Inter-communitarian Development Agency Eco Sibiu, RECHORALEX, and with the informative support of the Sibiu National Environment Guard.
In 2017, Romania has a mandatory national collection target for WEEE of 45%. In this context, ECOTIC launched, in 2016, two national campaigns – one dedicated exclusively to the urban areas (Clean Cities) and one dedicated both to the rural and urban areas (The Recycling Station) both meant to cover as much of the country as possible and send out the message of the need to correctly collect and recycle WEEE.
Starting with July 18th, the first five localities visited in Sibiu County are:
- Dumbraveni (18-20 July)
- Mosna (21-23 July)
- Copsa Mica (24-26 July)
- Avrig (27-29 July)
- Cristian (30 July – 1 August)
By the end of the campaign, the Caravan will have visited 15 localities from Sibiu.
