Dechetterie CASA

eurokiné writes in Home & Garden

Have just found out that the dechetteries at antibes, vallauris, valbonne & la colle sur loup are going over to an electronic badge system which keeps track of the weight of waste you take to the dechetterie (max 1500kg/year/household for free, tariff pro after that)
In order to get the badge you have to fill in a form (downloadable on www.envinet.fr) and send it with a copy of your taxe d'habitation & piece d'identité. You have to go to the dechetterie to collect the badge.

Hope this info helps

Good call eurokiné.
Yes they have been handing out the forms also at the entrance to the déchettèrie at Antibes for a couple of weeks now.
In my opinion 1.5 T per household/per year represents very little and I sincerely hope this does not increase the "Fly tipping" issue which is already extremely prevalent in the region.

if its just garden rubbish (which is generally voluminous rather than heavy) 1.5T should be ok
but I must admit I fear an increase in fly tipping & unauthorised burning etc.
Another theoretically good idea which will probably hit functional snags no bureaucrat would think of!

in fact the disappointed badgeless will be the largest risk, who have already loaded it all up & turn up at the tip to find they cant off load without the badge which will obviously take a couple of weeks to process!

I wonder what the volumes of contributors to the déchettèries in the area without "copy of your taxe d'habitation & piece d'identité." will do with their surplus objects!
