Description: 

In Chartres-de-Bretagne, France, SUEZ has invested EUR 10 million on the construction of a hub to recover waste from local businesses and authorities. The facility has the capacity to receive materials such as paper, cardboard, plastics, metals, bio-waste and building waste. The material is sorted and recycled on the same site to be sold on directly for reuse to the company's clients depending on their need for material and market demand.

Main results: 
  • The facility aims to achieve zero residual waste for a capacity of 100 000 tonnes of collected waste
  • 70 jobs are planned over time
  • This is one of the very first facilities of this scale to be installed in Brittany, giving it an important role in the regional circular economy.
