The initiative follows a voluntary agreement signed by the FEP and the Ministry of the Environment, Sustainable Development and Energy three years ago, which highlighted the role of cleaning companies in collecting toner cartridges, bulbs, batteries and other electrical waste, European Cleaning Journal reported.
It committed those involved to collecting 200,000 additional tonnes of office paper by 2015, as “the management of non-paper waste offers opportunities for further growth with the setting-up of new associated services”.
The FEP hopes to extend the training tools to 500 cleaning companies by the end of 2016, and to 3,000 by 2020.
