Nanterre, northern Paris on the 2 April. This sorting centre is built to treat annually 40,000 tons of recyclable waste collected by about 1 million residents of Western Paris. The things that are recycled here clean paper, clean cardboard, plastic bottles, steel and aluminium packaging.
The sorting process here is done by a mixture of hand sorting and machine sorting.
In a community hall in Saint-Ouen, against a background mural depicting an industrial town decoratively cloaked in yellow plumes of smoke, people from Saint-Ouen debated the problems of waste and the alternatives to incineration.
Waste incinerator… What alternatives?
Waste & Environment Watch
On Monday 26 January, a working group was created on the theme: Waste / Incinerator, by eco-citizens, Convergence Citoyenne Association and the Greens of Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine.
It aims to reflect and act on:
- Reduction of waste associated with our lifestyle, consumption and production
- Assessment and reduction of adverse impacts on health by the incinerator which will be in operation until 2020 in our municipality.
With these issues, we wish to raise awareness for eco gestures and in collaboration to meet with industry, associations, businesses and municipalities, to propose and facilitate the implementation of concrete measures.
The first meeting - not to be missed - is during the week of National Sustainable Development 2009 (http://www.semainedudeveloppementdurable.gouv.fr/)
Thursday April 2 from 20.30, Labor exchange,
30 Rue Ambroise Croizat
After the debate, we propose to continue the discussion around a friendly drink.
This working group is open to everyone, so do not hesitate to contact us: Isabelle de Kochko: Mail: convergence.citoyenne AT club-internet.fr or Franck Rolland
