Smart waste collection station SIGUREC, with bounty on the spot, launched at Cora Lujerului

2016-04-10 12:08:13 - From the Print Edition

Retailer Cora Romania launched in March, together with Green Group - one of the main recycling players on the local market - the most modern waste collection infrastructure, the SIGUREC automated station, in the parking lot of Cora′s Lujerului hypermarket. Thus, Cora customers can bring all recyclable waste they generate at home from plastic packaging, glass containers or aluminium cans, to paper, cardboard, electronics, lamps, light bulbs and batteries, immediately receiving vouchers which can be used for shopping in Cora. The value of goods is calculated depending on the type and quantity of waste brought, based on the following values per unit: 0.05 RON for PET packaging, 0.03 RON for an aluminium can, 0.01 RON for a glass packaging, 0.15 RON for a kilogram of paper or cardboard. For electronics, the value of goods differs depending on the type and quantity of equipment. "We have designed the project to be handy to those who come for weekly shopping," said Constantin Damov, co-founder of Green Group, during a press conference. "They put the waste in the trunk, take their voucher and go with it to the store. At the same time, we want people to understand that the voucher is a guarantee that the waste has been registered and it will reach the shortest way to factories for recycling rather than landfill." Green Group posted a turnover of around 150 million Euro at the end of 2015 and comprises five important companies with around 1,500 employees: GreenTech, a plastics recycler; GreenFiber International, for synthetic polyester fibre and PET band; GreenWEEE International, for waste electrical and electronic equipment; GreenLamp Reciclare, for used lighting equipment; and GreenGlass Recycling, for glass.
