The improvement in
sorting quality is
‍within reach of bins

Inter-municipalities or communities of agglomerations, communes and metropolises with their own waste collection systems analyze their routes and set up specific awareness-raising campaigns for their constituents.


Why improve sorting quality?

To meet the performance challenges facing local authorities, optimize waste recovery and promote the circular economy.
