Where to dispose of your rubbish ?
Most communes offer regular waste collection. For special waste, such as clothing or large objects, specific collection points or waste collection centres are available.
Household appliances and batteries : This waste has its own sorting rules. For example, household appliances can be taken back when a new one is purchased, or donated to associations. Used batteries and lamps must be disposed of at specific collection points.
Medicines : These should be returned to the pharmacy for recycling.
Bulky goods : Some communes offer a collection service, while others require you to drop off your rubbish directly at a waste collection centre.
In a spirit of eco-responsibility, every household can turn its food waste into compost. Solutions such as individual composters and worm composters are available.
It is essential to respect your local collection schedule. In Paris, for example, green and grey-lidded bins are collected daily, while yellow bins are collected three times a week.
In short, selective sorting is a daily process, but one that is essential to preserving our environment. Each of us, at our own level, can contribute to a greener, cleaner world. Let’s adopt the right gestures!
