As a general contractor, I am responsible for ensuring the regulatory compliance of waste management on site

The law requires me to trace waste flows starting from their departure from a site:

  • It is no longer possible to trace waste only at its point of arrival at a treatment facility. 
  • I need a solution that ensures efficient traceability of waste throughout its value chain. 
  • I need to be able to prove my compliance with the law and good practices.
  • I need a practical and an easy-to-use solution for my operators and subcontractors.

French law on circular economy (law n° 2020-105 of 10th of February 2020)

EPR PMCB

Extended producer responsibility for the products and materials used in the construction of buildings

TECV

French law on energy transition (law n° 2015-992 of 17th of August 2015)

Some key figures:

43.5 million tonnes

of construction waste produced in France every year

Divide by 4

greenhouse gas emissions between 1990 and 2050

Reduce by 50%

the amount of waste sent to landfills by 2025

70%

of construction waste recycled, target set by the EU

3 years

the minimum conservation period for supporting documents

Challenges to overcome:

Ensure regulatory compliance

Establish a regulatory database for all site flows:

  • Accurate, complete, and auditable for at least 3 years

Limit the use of new materials and improve material recovery:

  • Systematically identify and quantify materials and waste

Prevent illegal dumping:

  • Receive alerts concerning specific events
  • Identify site flows at their arrival and departure from site

The SGP’s sustainable development department considers the traceability of excavated soil to be a key element in reducing the project’s carbon impact.

As a responsible player, we want to reduce our environmental footprint.”

Provide proof of exemplary execution

Provide factual evidence:

  • Information supported by images and geo-location data
  • Available in real time 
  • Waste tracking notes (BSDs) generated in real time and available remotely

Ensure safety on site and during transit:

  • By limiting risk situations, including overloading

Limit nuisances for local residents 

Easily generate exhaustive reports – no more spreadsheets

Follow-up on the activity with an intuitive interface:

  • Generate graphs and exports on all parameters
  • For any period, for any participant in the value chain, and on the transported contents

Calculate the carbon footprint reduction from key data:

  • Detailed information on transport flows, including type of vehicle, weight, and distance travelled
  • Detailed information on the material recovery and the exact quantity per type of waste

Our aim is to have precise data on the volume of excavated material on our sites – % of materials reused and recycled, % of polluted soil – and to generate reports on the overall impact of waste on our operations and on our carbon footprint.

Pollution, health problems, exorbitant costs for municipalities... these aspects characterise illegal dumping, or so called “wild deposits” or “orphan sites”.  Even if, as a professional, one can risk a 75,000 euro fine and a two-year prison sentence when one illegally dumps their waste into the environment (Environmental Code, article L. 541-46.)...

Your obligations under the French circular economy law (law n°2020-105 of 10th of February 2020) will be operational from 1st of January 2022 onwards. Your obligations depend not only on who you are (waste producer, site manager, transporter, treatment facility, etc.) but also on the type of waste or excavated soil you produce or process.
