Give your household items a better end than the dustbin

What do a punctured garden hose, a sofa that's too wide, a damaged mattress and a baby carrier that's too small have in common? If you don't know what to do with them, Ecomaison knows! Strangely enough, all those worn-out or broken objects you have at home and don't know what to do with aren't useless. They still have value. And they deserve much better than to end up as mere garbage.
And for objects that can still be used, give preference to players in the social economy.

It's all about eco-participation

Ecomaison and its partners have set up a local network of over 6,700 collection points, 600 industrial players for recycling materials and 580 players in the social economy for reusing objects, thanks toeco-participation (a compulsory contribution by all purchasers of new products to finance the extension of their lifespan and recycling). This local network gives all French people access to a collection point within 15 km of their home.
