Info Focus: recycling: our waste is transformed into raw materials

Since March, it has been much easier to take action as an "eco-citizen" in the Principality. The blue bins for paper have been discontinued. Paper will no longer be sorted separately, but will be placed in the yellow bins, along with plastic and cardboard household packaging. Once it has been collected by SMA's trucks, the recyclable waste is then taken to the "Paprec Trivalo Côte d’Azur" plant in Cannes-la-Bocca. This impressive waste sorting centre, to which 57 municipalities are affiliated, belongs to the "Syndicat Mixte d'Elimination des Déchets". Sorted waste from Monaco has been brought here since 2008.
