Building recycling sector: Ecomaison announces an increase in eco-taxes for May 1, 2024

As part of its accreditation for category 2 of the PMCB (building products and materials recycling) chain, Ecomaison has been rolling out the free take-back of non-inert waste since May 2, 2023. By October 2023, nearly 120 take-back points have already been set up nationwide, 99 of which also take back inert waste, in partnership with Ecominéro.

Trade outlets and distributors account for more than two-thirds of these take-back points.

An increase in the number of collection points

By the end of 2023, Ecomaison will have deployed more than 340 take-back points across the country for sorted building waste.

The ramp-up to 2024 will accelerate sharply. The public authorities have included a 600-fold increase in volumes to be recycled by the end of 2024 in the approval of eco-organizations. The Ecomaison Board of Directors and its Building sector committee have decided to question the public authorities on the feasibility of this operational trajectory.

Without calling into question the sector's environmental ambitions or its service to craftsmen, it is essential for the building sector to implement a gradual, economically sustainable ramp-up of the recycling sector, and not suddenly amplify inflation on building products and materials.

Changes to the eco-participation scale from May 1, 2024

On October 9, 2023, the Ecomaison Board of Directors approved the principle of updating the collection trajectory, taking into account the technical and financial capacities of the sector.

On this basis, it also approved the principle of a change to the building eco-participation scale, with an effective date of May1, 2024. This new eco-participation scale will be published in advance, so that companies can anticipate the introduction of the new rates.
