Selective Collecting


Type of program: Selective Collection of Garbage

Time: 08.10.2011 – 09.10.2011

Location: Oradea

Between 8-9 Oktober, 2011 (Satuday-Sunday) took place a campaign for awareness, with the help of youngsters. The aim of this campaign was to make more and more people aware of the importance of selective collection, and that it has a key role on the level of everyday routine. The initiating company was the Eco Bihor. They advertised the movement with three weeks before it, in different TV programmes, newspapers, and they tried to do everything to ensure success.  On 7 October they held a discussion for the volunteers who took part in the campaign. Approximately 150 volunteers were present, high school students, university students and other youngsters, who got every instruction to the weekend program. We hope that we could move something in the minds of people in connection with the selective collection of garbage.

Description of the campaign

Taking in account the situation presented above, the ECO BIHOR company  – as the manager of the Non-Hazardous Waste Landfill and Sorting Hall of Bihor county-, and the RER Ecologic Service Rt. – as the collector of the household waste – were starting an awareness campaign for the local community, in connection with the selective waste-collection.

Together with the campaign the schools were asked to organize a competition of collecting paper.

The program was based on the participation of volunteers, so we sent a group of 2-3 persons to each collecting place. Here they gave flyers to people, and asked them about their way of throwing out the waste. They were also attentive o the people who were doing it by selecting the waste. These people got some little gifts. The volunteers were talking with people about their opinion and their knowledge of selective collection. These youngsters were wearing a bilingual t-shirt with the motto , “COLECTEAZĂ SELECTIV- GYŰJTS SZELEKTÍVEN” (I collect selectively).
