REUSE, RECYCLE OR RECOVER: WHAT IS REQUIRED BY LAW ?
The French environmental code has defined priority levels for waste management methods to favour those that generate the least pollution. Waste producers are thus required to prefer (in order):
- energy production in particular
- storage or incineration if none of the above solutions are possible
The “5-flow” decree of July 2016 also requires producers to implement at-source sorting of paper/cardboard, metal, glass, plastic and wood.
WASTE RECYCLING: ECOLOGICAL AND ECONOMICAL
FOR THE PLANET
Sorting and recycling waste makes a substantial contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions: recycling reduces the need for virgin raw material extraction, and saves the energy and water required to manufacture these materials.
There is also an economic advantage to recycling waste. Material recycling now costs less than disposing of waste. It also means a lower rate of TGAP (the tax on pollutant activities), which is set to increase in 2021 and 2025
