The Recycling Map, the interactive national platform that allows the identification and location of separate collection points for recyclable waste in Romania, has increased by 70% this year and exceeded 12,100 points, inform the project initiators.
At this year’s level alone, more than 5,400 points were added to the dedicated platform compared to those already existing in 2019.
According to the association for sustainable development ViitorPlus, the platform has two components, namely the map with the collection points at national level and the one with educational resources.
Currently, the total number of collection points marked on www.hartareciclarii.ro has exceeded 12,100, of which most (1,770) are in Bucharest.
The capital is followed by Bistriţa-Năsăud counties – with over 872 points, and Braşov – with 648, then by Hunedoara, Cluj, Sibiu, Timiş and Mureş, each with over 500 separate collection points marked on the map, according to Agerpres.
The platform was launched in May 2019 by the ViitorPlus Association, in partnership with the Coca Cola HBC Romania and with the support of the Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests as part of the “After us, we gather all” project.
