A EUR 4 million project designed to collect recyclable waste from households was implemented by Total Waste Management, part of recycling Green Group and a provider of integrated waste management solutions, and co-financed with grants of EUR 1.4 million from the Government of Norway, The Diplomat magazine’s portal said in a report.

Smart collection infrastructure is developed in 25 major cities in Romania, aiming to take over 15,200 tonnes annually of packaging waste and electrical and electronic equipment, destined for recycling plants in the country, the report said.

Norway has set itself the development objective to become one of the most innovative and green economies in the world, said Tove Bruvik Westberg, the ambassador of Norway to the country.

“Optimizing existing industries, encouraging entrepreneurship and investment in eco-innovation, developing and implementing new technologies, these are some of the steps taken by Norway to promote a green economy.”

To date, 11 collection points have been installed by Green Group, with the rest expected to be implemented by the end of the year, The Diplomat reported.
