Retailer Cora Romania partnered with recycler Green Group to launch its automated waste collection unit Sigurec at the parking lot of Lujerului hypermarket.

All recyclable waste from home can be brought: from plastic packaging, glass containers or aluminium cans, to paper, cardboard, electronics, to lamps, light bulbs and batteries, an article in The Diplomat explains. Collected vouchers can be used for shopping. PET packaging is worth RON 0.05 (1.12 euro cents) a piece, an aluminium can returns 0.7 cents, a piece of glass packaging gets the customer 0.2 cents, and a kilogramme of paper or cardboard is worth 3.4 euro cents. For electronics, the value depends on type and quantity of equipment.

Green Group said it aims to guarantee to customers that the waste has been registered to head the shortest way to factories for recycling rather than a landfill. The recycling operator, which posted a turnover of EUR 150 million last year, comprises five companies with 1,500 employees, the article said. GreenTech is a plastics recycler, GreenFiber International works with synthetic polyester fibre and PET, GreenWEEE International handles electrical and electronic equipment, GreenLamp Reciclare recycles lighting, and GreenGlass Recycling operates with glass.
