Active Municipality

The fight for 20,000 CZK has already ended and we know the regional winners of the ACTIVE MUNICIPALITY 2018 competition.

The ACTIVE MUNICIPALITY competition started this year on the first day of April, ending on the last day of September 2018. It was extended from three to six months in comparison with last year. For registered municipalities we record an average increase of small WEEE collection in red containters of 9%. Thirty municipalities that ranked higher were even more than 10%.

Municipalities and cities of the Czech Republic had the opportunity to win CZK 20,000 for winning the second year of the ACTIVE OBEC. The competition supports the collection of redundant electrical equipment in red containers and motivates municipalities to promote awareness of the importance of taking back and recycling old electrical appliances. Most small appliances and batteries are still ending up in municipal waste instead of throwing them into specialized red containers or taking them to the collection yards where they are going to recycle.
