The Law of the 15th of July 1975 is the first regulatory text for recycling in France.

The law specifies that the operations of collection, transport and treatment of waste must be carried out under conditions avoiding “any risk for the environment and for human health”. It organizes the collection and treatment of waste in France and establishes the “polluter pays” principle. It sets out the broad guidelines for source sorting to facilitate the recovery of materials, elements or forms which can be transformed into energy.


The Law of the 13th of July 1992, also called the ROYAL Law, strengthens, and modernizes the provisions of the Law of 1975.

Waste is now a source of energy and raw materials that can no longer be wasted or destroyed. Source sorting and recycling are made mandatory with the whole structure based on the principle of Extended Producer Responsibility (R.E.P) enforced by the government.
Each company is responsible for the management of the waste it produces or holds until its disposal or final recovery. A company is therefore responsible for the waste it produces even when it is transferred to a third party for treatment. The company must ensure that their disposal complies with regulations. (Article L 541-2 of the Environmental Code.)


The decree of the 13th of July 1994 still refers to the law of 1975 with a new focus on packaging waste.

Thanks to this new regulation, packaging waste must now either be re-used, recycled or recovered in the form energy.


The Decree n° 2016-288 of the 10th of March 2016 is being enforced since the 1st of July 2016:

All companies which generate waste (should it be their customers or their employees) have a legal obligation to separate their waste into 5 distinct streams: paper/cardboard, plastic, wood, metal and glass
Companies are offered two options:
  • Source sorting directly at their location
  • Mixed in a single container the 5 streams in a way that they can be sorted after collection
Once sorted and collected, this waste must be recovered by the producer of the waste himself or by a recovery specialist. The collection entity must ensure traceability of the waste, including monitoring slips indicating the quantities and nature of the waste entrusted.


Since the 1st of July 2016, all the public administration offices, with 20 employees or more have the obligation to sort all their office paper waste at source.
Since the 1st of January 2018, this obligation has been extended to all business locations with more than 20 people. This waste is treated by a recovery company which provides a certificate each year indicating the recovery center, the nature of the recovered waste and the volumes treated.

We handle all types of waste streams

  • Cartons d’emballage et de conditionnement
  • Papiers à usage graphiques
  • Papiers spéciaux ou industriels
  • Papiers domestiques

Chaque année, un employé génère environ 70kg de papier (source ADEME). Ainsi en France Les Papiers et les Journaux font partis des déchets les plus produits et les mieux recyclés grâce à des techniques en constante amélioration. Il en est de même pour la valorisation des cartons qui suivent des filières bien précises.

  • Industrial plastics: production scrap
  • Films: industrial, agricultural, agricultural mulching
  • Bottles, flasks
  • Polystyrene, Expanded polystyrene

Plastic recycling is one of the biggest challenges we face as a society. Plastics require centuries to decompose if left in the environment and their incineration is extremely polluting. Plastics are made of fossil-fuel (when not produced from recycled granulates). Plastics are so convenient that their usage grew by 10x during the past ten years, building a circular supply chain for plastics is more important than ever.

  • Zinc, Nickel, Lead
  • Copper, bronze, stainless steel, aluminum
  • Chromium

Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are widely spread in industrial activities: construction, automotive, naval, as well as packaging such as cans.

  • Screens, monitors…
  • Computer and telecommunication equipment
  • Household appliances
  • Solar panels

Electronic equipments have short life cycles, which makes the recycling and recovery of the rare components they are made of a top goal. These are complex products, made of a wide set of materials: glass, plastics as well as precious metals and even toxic materials. E-waste recovery is strictly monitored by the European Directive of 2003 (amended in July 2012 and August 2015).

  • Paper/Cardboard
  • Ferrous/ non-Ferrous
  • Glass
  • Textiles / Wood

    Ordinary industrial waste is generated by industrial companies, retailers, and office spaces include materials such as: cardboards, packaging, glass, textiles, which after being collected and separated, can be sorted and massified to become  recycled raw materials.

  • Wood A: without any particular treatment, issued from raw wood transformation
  • Wood B: slightly treated, painted, varnished…


In France, every year, it is almost 14 million tons of wooden waste that are produced and only 7 million tons are recycled and transformed.

The advantages of the CMP offer

Because the needs of tertiary companies, manufacturers, SMEs, and administrations necessarily differ, we offer tailor-made solutions with a personalized diagnosis and turnkey solutions, specific to each client.

We study together with you the operations on your site and take into account all the technical and environmental constraints in order to better identify the bottlenecks of your waste management strategy.

Thus, thanks to this environmental audit, we have a global vision of your site which then allows us to offer you a progress plan (qualitative, organizational, budgetary, and regulatory).

Naturally, the main areas of development remain higher recovery rates and better sorting.
Once the audit has been validated by the different teams, we can offer the set-up of a recurring service that includes:

  • Collection
  • Transport
  • Treatment

Needless to say, we make you work with local service providers to reduce the carbon footprint and we ensure the recovery of your waste by selecting service providers from the Recycling industry.
Finally, we provide you with all the required reporting by the law or for your CSR reporting: traceability, operational performance reports…
