waste reduction

Ecomairie – the first online recycling centre !
Initialement lancé sur le périmètre de la Communauté Urbaine de Dunkerque, Ecomairie est un outil numérique permettant aux particuliers d’un même territoire de donner ou vendre un objet dont ils ne se servent plus avant qu’il ne devienne un déchet et finisse par être jeté.
 
Conçu comme un site internet de proximité entre particuliers permettant le don et la vente d’objets non utilisés et voués à finir en déchetterie, Ecomairie est désormais déployé auprès de nombreuses collectivités en France.
 
Le dispositif permet d’aider les territoires dans la réduction des coûts liés...
Initially launched on the perimeter of the Urban Community of Dunkirk, Ecomairie is a digital tool allowing individuals from the same region to give or sell an object which they do not use any more before it becomes surplus to requirement and ends up being thrown out.
 
Conceived as a website of proximity between individuals allowing the donation and sale of unused objects, doomed to end in the waste, Ecomairie is now deployed in many municipalities in France.
 
This device helps regions reduce the costs entailed by waste processing and create a local network bringing many stakeholders together (social and solidarity economy structures, social housing providers, repairers, cultural stakeholders…).
TriOmix, the first creative sprint that reinvents waste sorting in the city
L’enjeu du tri sélectif en milieu urbain dense est connu : on trie deux fois moins en ville qu’à la campagne.
 
Face à ce constat, Citéo, en partenariat avec la Métropole de Lyon, son laboratoire d’innovation ERASME et l’Ecole Centrale, a organisé TriOmix : le tout premier sprint créatif dédié à l’amélioration du tri en ville.
 
Organisé à Lyon les 3, 4 et 5 juillet 2019, cet évènement a rassemblé associations locales, étudiants, designer, start-up, experts des déchets ou encore enseignants, pour travailler collectivement à des propositions d’amélioration de la pratique du...
The issue of selective waste sorting in dense urban areas is well known: we sort half as much in the city as in the countryside.
 
Faced with this fact, Citéo, in partnership with the Lyon Metropolis, its innovation laboratory ERASME and the Ecole Centrale, organised TriOmix: the first creative sprint dedicated to improving waste sorting in the city.
 
Organised in Lyon on 3, 4 and 5 July 2019, this event brought together local associations, students, designers, start-ups, waste experts and teachers, to work collectively on proposals to improve the practice of waste sorting, increase recycling and reduce waste production.
 
The fifty participants first underwent an immersion sequence, before taking their position on one of the challenges facing the Lyon Metropolis concerning selective sorting. The teams then proceeded to prototyping and then prepared their pitch for the opening of the premises to the public.
 
Six prototypes were ultimately unveiled and some of them are expected to enter an incubation phase in order to be tested in real-world conditions as early as 2020.
Trilib', self-service waste sorting
Pour permettre à plus de Parisiens de trier plus simplement et pouvoir apporter une solution aux 10 % de Parisiens n’ayant pas de bac jaune, Citeo a conduit et financé une expérimentation à Paris : 40 stations trilib’, des containers de collecte de proximité disponibles 24h sur 24, implantés dans 4 arrondissements.
Mobilier urbain de tri et modulaire, la station trilib’ mutualise 5 flux : les emballages en verre, en métal, les bouteilles et flacons en plastique, les papiers et cartons et enfin les textiles. Innovation digitale et service à l’usager, les taux de remplissage des stations sont disponibles en temps réel sur...
To allow more Parisians to sort their waste more simply and be able to provide a solution to the 10% of Parisians who do not have a yellow bin, Citeo conducted and financed an experiment in Paris: 40 trilib' stations, local collection containers available 24 hours a day, located in 4 districts.
Modular urban sorting furniture, the trilib' station brings together 5 streams: glass and metal packaging, plastic bottles and containers, paper and cardboard, and finally, textiles. Digital innovation and user service, station filling rates are available in real time on the opendata.paris.fr platform.
The City of Paris has decided to deploy these stations that facilitate waste sorting and collection.
Each station collects around an additional 25 tonnes of packaging each year and improves the quality of sorting.
For 9 out of 10 Parisians, they are easy to use and show that waste sorting is really useful. Since 2017, this still experimental arrangement has already allowed the sorting and recycling, among other things, of 55 tons of plastic bottles, or about 2 million bottles.
A thousand Trilib' stations will be deployed throughout Paris from the end of 2019 to 2021 by the City of Paris with the support of Citeo.
 
Eco-responsible, solidary collection

Trophées Eco Actions 28ème édition

PRIX DE L’INNOVATION : Agglomération du Saint-Quentinois

Depuis décembre 2016, l’agglomération met en place, sur les propositions de ses agents, des collectes éco-responsables et solidaires. Ces collectes permettent non seulement la réduction des déchets en leur offrant une seconde vie, mais aussi le développement du don :  elles participent ainsi à l’essor de l’économie circulaire, un des leviers de la 3ème révolution industrielle.

Des collectes de jouets ont déjà eu lieu en partenariat avec les associations G L’Espoir,...

28th edition of the Eco Actions Trophies

Innovation Prize: Saint-Quentinois conurbation

Acting on a proposal from its officers, since December 2016, the conurbation has organized eco-responsible, solidary collections. These collections not only help reduce waste, providing it with a new lease of life, but also increase donations: they therefore help promote an upsurge in the circular economy, one of the levers of the third industrial revolution. Toy collections have already taken place in partnership with NGOs including G L’Espoir, Popular Relief and Catholic Relief. More than 3000 toys have been collected for local NGOs and redistributed to families. A collection of glasses for the NGO “Glasses without Borders” was set up for distribution to visually impaired people in France and abroad by the organization. Finally, a collection of books took place for the St Quentin ‘Restos du Coeur’ solidary library, with around 4.6 tonnes of books collected and given a second life.

The "Recycl'Lab" room and the "Tri Truck" vehicle, new awareness and prevention tools
Le Recycl’Lab est un espace collaboratif, vitrine pour les projets menés par le Grand Reims sur la prévention des déchets. C’est un espace à vocation pédagogique qui s’adresse à tous les publics du territoire. Les mots d’ordre du local sont REDUIRE, RECYCLER et REUTILISER. Quatres associations accueillent les habitants au Recycl’Lab :
-Vél’Oxygène qui animera des ateliers de réparation de vélo,
- Le SEL (Système d’échange local) de Reims qui propose une vision collaborative des échanges de service,
- la JCE (Jeune Chambre Economique) de Reims qui met en place une bibliothèque d’outils...
The Recycl'Lab is a collaborative space, a showcase for projects led by Greater Reims on waste prevention. It is a pedagogical space intended for all audiences in the region. The watchwords of the undertaking are REDUCE, RECYCLE and REUSE. Four associations welcome local residents to the Recycl'Lab:
-Vel'Oxygène, which will run bicycle repair workshops,
- The SEL (Local Exchange System) in Reims, which offers a collaborative vision of service exchanges,
- The JCE (Junior Chamber of Commerce) in Reims, which is setting up a library of tools on loan or lease,
- Les Petits Débrouillards (resourceful young people), a national network for popular science education.
The system is completed by the Tri Truck, a mobile service, which provides answers to questions about waste management and prevention as close as possible to the local inhabitants (markets, outside buildings, events, etc.).
The Greater Reims urban community has public partners such as ADEME and ECOLOGIC.
This project is one of the nominees for the 28th edition of the Eco Action Trophies, the leading sustainable development competition for local communities, organised by the Les Eco Maires association.
