Recicleta, presented by Teia (Catana) Gavrilescu and Cristina Simionescu from Romania, won the first prize in the special environment category. Recicleta’s main purpose is to collect small quantities of waste paper from offices for recycling by using cargo-bicycles and employing socially disadvantaged people. In Romania, standard commercial companies will generally only collect waste material in excess of 150 kg. Thanks to this scheme, substantial amounts of paper are recycled instead of being added to landfills and jobs are created. Funding comes from client fees, sponsorship, the sale of waste paper and state support. Moreover, the two cargo-bicycles that are used are an efficient and eco-friendly means of transport, unique to Romania and with zero CO2 emissions.
