Iași, October 28, 2015 – Iaşi joins the National Collection Network, a project of RoRec Association in partnership with local authorities nationwide to create an infrastructure for collecting WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) accessible to a greater number of citizens. Thus, the Municipality of Iaşi, SC Salubris SA and RoRec Association launch Friday, October 30, an electrical waste collection center in Iasi.

The collection center that will be inaugurated on Friday, October 30, 2015, starting at 10.00, will be the 31st location of RoRec National Collection Network.
