A national drive
The actions of the VOA are part of a national (VERRE- AVENIR) and European (European Container Glass Federation) movement whose objective is that 75% of glass used in France be recovered and recycled. In 2012, 7 glass bottles of 10 are recycled in France.
reduces household waste to collect and process, to the tune of 85,000 tons
saves 100,000 tons of virgin raw material
saves the equivalent of 10,000 tons of petroleum
reduces CO2 emissions
A regional dynamic
This partnership mobilizes public agencies, private associations, producers, Eco Emballages, Adelphe and VOA...all for the same objective.
Since launching the Récup Verre program in the 1980’s and today:
More than 95% of the regional population and communities are active
10,000 glass recovery bins installed
40 direct employees, not counting the participation of local communities
100% of recovered glass is recycled into bottles
In 35 years of recycling we have managed to recover 70% of household glass; that’s 2000 kt in 2012 for France alone.
The target of 75% recycling is close but the last percentages are the most difficult to win. Who is concerned by and must therefore act towards this shared objective:
- The consumer that sorts all its glass household packaging (bottles and jars) for deposit in Recup Verre.
- Communities and their service providers, to provide quality services (logistics and communication)
The VOA and its partner, Briane Environement, engage with you to recycle more :
- Separation of white glass and colored glass
- Automated sorted colors
- Increased rate of cullet in the white and colored glass
