After the pilot project from Timisoara, the Recycling Patrol expands to seven counties. Over 130 institutions responded to our invitation and have already registered with the program, with an intermediary count of approximately 10,000 children who will get involved in waste electric and electronic equipment collection activities.
The large number of registration applications from schools made us extend the Recycling Patrol registration deadline to Tuesday, December 20th, at 12:00 am. Find details about the Recycling Patrol program and registration methodology on the dedicated page from the RoRec Association website, https://www.rorec.ro/ro/patrula-de-reciclare, as well as on the Facebook page, www.facebook.com/patruladereciclare.
Bistrita-Nasaud, Calarasi, Hunedoara, Prahova, Teleorman, Tulcea and Timis are the counties where the Rorec Association, as initiator of the Recycling Patrol program, with support from partners Indesit
, will carry out the Recycling Patrol program. Developed in partnership with Townhalls and County School Inspectorates in the pre-school and pre-university systems, the program provides the participants with a convenient and simple educational system, aimed at promoting the habit of collecting this type of waste selectively. The Recycling Patrol also helps students understand some of the causes for environmental pollution and become aware that mitigating them is up to everyone of us.
The 2011-2012 edition of the Recycling Patrol project will be carried out in pre-school and pre-university education institutions from the participating towns between November 25th
2011 and June 15th
2012. The organizers, supported by manufacturers Indesit and Philips, will reward the performance at this edition as well, offering prizes to education institutions and coordinating teachers that collected the largest WEEE quantity/member of the Recycling Patrol, as well as other prizes, presented both nationally and locally, in every institution that joined the program. The project’s media partner is Agerpress, the National Press Agency
The program supports the joint efforts of the Association, local authorities and RoRec members to create a coherent WEEE collection infrastructure to help meet the quantitative targets set by the European norms, namely 4 kg of WEEE collected per capita, per year.
