Market for Waste Management | France

Waste management, otherwise known as rudology, refers to the collection, transport, treatment, reuse or disposal of waste produced by human activity. The French State sets the policy and regulatory framework for waste management, in accordance with European Directive 2008/98/EC. This management is the responsibility of the local authorities. Depending on the type of waste, it may be the responsibility of the municipality, department or region. 

The waste management market is constantly growing in France, where more than 900,300 million tonnes of waste are produced each year by actors in agriculture, syviculture, mining, quarrying and construction, as well as by companies and households. Worldwide, 3400 to 4000 billion tons of waste are produced per year. In France in 2012, waste recovery and recycling activities produced 41 million tons of recycled raw materials. France has an average national collection rate of 63% for the management of agricultural plastic waste in 2012. 
 
Nevertheless, France lags in terms of recycling and waste treatment, especially for plastic waste, of which only 23% is recycled, compared to 90% for cardboard and 75% for glass. In addition, more awareness of upstream sorting is needed to reduce waste sorting and downstream blows. In 2015, sorting errors cost France more than 40 million euros. There more than 253 sorting centres in France compared to 80 centres in Germany, which has better results. 
 
There is now a decrease in the volumes of waste collected, increasing pricing pressure from local authorities and increased competition between private operators on the market. The two major international players, Suez and Veolia, are losing their leadership. At the same time, new players are entering the market and competing with them, including Pizzorno, Nicollin, Coved, Urbaser and Séché.
