Changing modes of consumption, production and eating habits have resulted in an explosion of the quantity and variety of waste that needs to be recovered. Waste management is a real challenge for communities, on both the financial and environmental fronts.
Local authorities are reworking the management of their services in order to set up made-to-measure collection systems that can collect more recoverable waste, reduce nuisances and optimise costs.
We offer a broad choice of solutions to set up collection systems adapted to every region, and we also propose innovative solutions that can improve the performance of the service and reduce the environmental impact.
Digital technology can play a major role in the reduction of nuisances, the optimisation of costs and the continuous improvement of the performance of the collection system.
Smart collection allows for:
The local residents are also involved in improving the performance of the service through web sites or dedicated applications that help them to manage their waste every day and to improve the quality of their sorting.
We offer waste transport services by river and rail in an effort to reduce traffic congestion in towns and to limit the environmental impact.
We can also supply collection vehicles that are 100% electric or are fuelled by alternative energies (Diester ©, natural gas).
We work hand in hand with local authorities to develop multi-modal transport plans that use railways and rivers.
We incite citizens to pay closer attention to sorting by helping communities to design and deploy incentive-based rates:
With the RECO collection solution, users can deposit their plastic bottles in 100% automated containers.
This remunerated alternative to selective collection rewards your users with vouchers they can spend with our retailing partners.
The RECO kiosk is equipped with an optical sorting system on the inlet and a container at the rear. The volume of waste inside the container can be monitored remotely and in real time.
We enter partnerships with start-ups, local associations and NGOs to organise the collection of special waste. The goal is to group together this disparate waste that is difficult to recycle in order to re-use it.
By way of example, SUEZ has teamed up with Terracycle to set up a system for the collection of specific waste streams that are not handled by the traditional sorting processes, because they are difficult to recycle (cigarette ends, disposable products, supple packaging, office supplies, cosmetics, dental products, used coffee capsules).
Today, almost 60 million collectors in Europe have already joined voluntary collection programmes “sponsored” by communities or companies, or recycling services funded by businesses, such as the “Zero waste box”.
