The La Part-Dieu shopping mall in Lyon is one of the largest and most dynamic shopping centres in Europe with 267 shops, restaurants and movie theatres, and over 34 million visitors each year.
Built by Unibail-Rodamco, the centre integrates a comprehensive waste management system managed by a special SUEZ team.
- 100% recovery rate with the 3,600 tonnes of waste produced per year broken down in 11 waste / material streams.
- 70 jobs are planned over time (transfer of employees from the PSA Group).
- Source separate collection of Commercial & Industrial waste is not well done in places that welcome public. Incentives to implement a comprehensive waste management system, notably requiring source separate collection of C&I waste are not in place. This leads to a loss of valuable materials and a lack of change in sorting habits of the population.
- The definition and distinction between Municipal waste and Commercial & Industrial waste is not well done in European legislation, notably in terms of quantity of waste produced. Lack of clarity in the definition leads to an absence of clear roles and responsibilities, inefficiencies and lower material recovery rates.
