During the Tri-Athlon challenge organised by Récylum, the most dynamic lamp and light source collection companies are rewarded. These companies have pledged to offer local and sustainable collection solutions by singing Récylum’s charter for “licensed light collectors”.
38 certified companies participated in 2013, and Paprec D3E in Chassieu won the prize! This is due to their 15% increase in collection in the last year, and the best progression and absolute value.
We congratulate them for their exemplary work.

PAPREC IMPROVES ITS SERVICE OFFERPaprec has recently signed an agreement with Stora Enso for the recovery of complex paper-cardboard, or liquid-food packaging.
This agreement, as well as Paprec receiving the Eco-Emballage AZE subsidy (aid to isolated zones), will allow the company to charge the same amounts to all local communities.
This charge will be higher than today’s, for, among other things, the AZEs will be in charge of transportation costs. This partnership will benefit all communities, whether they work with Paprec or not.
These new condition will apply to current contracts, and for different consultations, to new contracts. Stora Enso’s strong involvement in the recycling of liquid packaging was Paprec’s main reason for choosing this company.
A perfect recovery rate: This process allows for a 100% recovery rate: 80% in the form of cardboard and aluminium; 20% as energy, with the use of polyethylene (PE) as an energy source for the creation of cardboard.
With this agreement, Paprec proves once again that it is a recycling company, not jus a reseller.

PAPREC IMPLEMENTS A CHARTER FOR SECULARISMIn the name of the war against discrimination, the Paprec founder and CEO Jean-Luc Petithuguenin has wished for his 4000 collaborators (from 56 different nationalities) to voice their opinion about the charter for secularism that will be added to Paprec’s rules and regulations. Although it is ahead of its time in terms of law, this initiative could help improve the national debate.
