Eco-Rom Ambalaje registers four per cent collection growth in the first nine months of last year

Eco-Rom Ambalaje, founded to fulfil the recycling obligations for packaging waste incumbent on producers that deal with packaged products, collected and recycled 265,986 tonnes of packaging waste in the first nine months of last year, four per cent more compared to the same period of 2013

2015-02-06 22:32:45 - From the Print Edition

This means that the organization recycled 58 per cent of all packaging placed on the market by the members of the company, exceeding the recycling target of 55 per cent required by agreement with the European Union. "In 2008-2012, the quantities marketed nationally decreased, but the recycled quantities increased," Sorin Cristian Popescu, the general manager of Eco-Rom Ambalaje, tells The Diplomat – Bucharest. "Due to the significant contribution of producers and importers of packaged goods, through the responsibility transfer organizations, the obligations of packaging waste recycling - although growing - have been met every year, currently reaching a recovery rate of 60 per cent of all packaging waste put on the market."
In 11 years, Eco-Rom Ambalaje has invested more than 22 million RON (around five million Euro) in separate collection infrastructure and about the same amount in the bonus given to waste management companies for fulfilling waste collection services to the population. Eco-Rom Ambalaje ended the year of 2014 with over 3,200 customers in portfolio, over 200 waste management companies as partners and 500 agreements with local authorities.
