Why sorting and how to sort the wastes, actions in favour of a selective sorting.


Why do we sort the wastes?


  • To preserve energy and natural resources: paper recycling limits the deforestation, glass recycling preserves tonnes of sand, plastic bottles recycling preserves petroleum .
  • To recycle wrappings: thanks to the sorting, our wastes have a second life.
  • To preserve the environment: the rubbish tip, to avoid greenhouse effect and atmospheric pollutions limiting the volume of residual wastes. 


Actions carried out


  • Administrative process  intervention of the municipalities upstream from the works contact in order to get plots for the setting of the sorting terminals.
  • Billposting campaign “En Alta Rocca, soyons sélectifs, trions.”

  • Competition : children’s drawings « Qui sera notre mascotte »
  • Purchase of sorting containers for glass, paper and wrapping.

  • Membership with the SYVADEC (Syndicat de Valorisation des Déchets) mixed regional syndicate for the treatment of the household wastes.

  • Setting up and management of 300 containers which will be dispatched in 100 special sorting places.
  • Establishement of a recycling centre
  • Opening since 2008 of a recycling centre in Sainte Lucie de Porto Vecchio
