Action leader(s)

SYCTOM - Paris metropolitan area's syndicate for the treatment of household waste


This initiative presents the different steps that were taken by the SYCTOM to increase the recovery rate of bulky waste over the past 10 years. It will especially focus on the modifications brought to the sorting processes, with the use of pre-sorting centres to remove part of the contamination.
