The contract’s objective, which begins in January 2019, is to reduce residual non-recyclable household waste by 40% and recover 100% of waste by the end of the contract.
Veolia will optimize waste collection and treatment from the 21,000 households in a 700 km² perimeter, reducing the distance travelled in accordance with France’s energy transition law. Covering 2 distinct local authority groupings, the contract makes it possible to pool collection resources.
An incentive fee based on the "polluter pays" principle, which is already in operation in part of the “Lunéville à Baccarat” territory, will reward good sorters and those who make an effort to reduce their waste. This new approach to financing waste collection also allows users - citizens or industry - to control their bills.
Information campaigns are planned to reduce the production of non-recyclable waste. New collection resources will be deployed alongside a series of local social and solidarity economy initiatives.
