Paris, France — Le Groupe La Poste and SUEZ have decided to create a joint company to step up the collection and recovery of office waste in mainland France. The joint company will offer a unique solution for office waste to all its customers, regardless of their size and sector of activity. This project is subject to the prior approval of the French competition authority.
With its Recy’Go offer, La Poste has developed an innovative model, based on circular and solidarity economics. Used office paper and cardboard is collected, then sorted by “Nouvelle Attitude”, a professional integration subsidiary of La Poste, and by partners from Social and Solidarity Economy. Materials are then sold in France for recycling.
SUEZ is well-known for its expertise in the collection and recycling of all types of waste, and for its know-how in downstream waste recovery processes. The preservation of resources is at the heart of its strategy. SUEZ has also developed the socially responsible dimension of its activity through “Rebond”, a company that helps people get back to work through an economic activity.
The new joint entity will be positioned on the office waste collection and recovery market. It will offer a simple and innovative solution that enables businesses to comply with the “Five Flows” decree, published as part of the law on the Energy Transition. And this will be done with a resolutely circular model that preserves resources, creates local jobs and has firm local roots.
