In period April 2-6, 2018, the campaign “Clean Cities" takes place in Drobeta Turnu Severin.

Together with local public and environmental authorities, ECOTIC informs residents of dozens of cities across the country about the need to collect WEEE and provides collection points where this waste can be brought and handed over for recycling.

In 2018, the campaign continues in Drobeta Turnu Severin, with the support of the Ministry of Environment, Drobeta Turnu Severin City Hall, the National Agency for Environmental Protection Mehedinti, the Environmental Guard and Brantner Ecological Services.
