Regional roadmap

In terms of prevention and waste management, the main regional issues are:

Nature of waste

Main issues 2025-2031

Non-hazardous non-inert waste

From 40% material recovery in 2015 to 65% in 2025 and 2031

Anticipate treatment and storage needs by ensuring the application of the principles of proximity and self-sufficiency to the 4 living areas

Inert waste

Capture in legal channels more than 2Mt of inert waste following illegal channels in 2015 while maintaining a 70% recovery rate in 2025 and 2031

Anticipate treatment and storage needs by ensuring the application of the principles of proximity and self-sufficiency to the 4 living areas

Hazardous waste

Capture 100% of the deposit against only 60% in 2015 and recover 70% of the tonnages collected (matter and energy) in 2025 and 2031


Aware of the environmental, social, economic and also societal issues related to waste prevention and management, the Regional Assembly decided to initiate the process of drawing up the Regional Plan for Prevention and Management of Waste and its environmental report, by deliberation n ° 16-78 dated April 8, 2016 with the aim of developing a new economic model towards a circular, resource-efficient economy. This objective is recalled in the Region's Climate Plan: "a COP in advance" (approved on December 15, 2017). It lists 100 initiatives, 15 of which directly concern the implementation of the Waste Prevention and Management Plan.

In accordance with the legislation, the draft Regional Waste Prevention and Management Plan was adopted by the Regional Council on 18 October 2018, following extensive consultation with local authorities, association partners, government departments, professional organisations and eco-organisations. 

The public inquiry, which took place from March 18, 2019 to April 19, 2019, for 33 consecutive days, was the final phase of the consultation process. 

The Commission of Inquiry, composed of 7 permanent investigators and 2 alternate investigators, issued its report and reasoned conclusions on 24 May 2019. The draft Plan and its environmental report have been modified to take into account the comments received. 

The Regional Waste Prevention and Management Plan and its environmental report were finally adopted by the Regional Assembly on 26 June 2019.

The Regional Waste Prevention and Management Plan sets out the means of waste reduction, material and organic recycling and residual waste treatment by 2025 and 2031, in accordance with Article R. 541-16 of the Environmental Code. It also defines annual monitoring indicators and is a structuring regulatory tool for all public and private actors in the territory.

The Plan declines 9 regional orientations:

1. Define basins of life for the application of the principles of proximity and self-sufficiency applied in a proportionate way to the waste flows concerned and integrating a logic of regional solidarity

2. Regional definition of the national objectives in the respect of the hierarchy of the modes of treatment, in coherence with the contexts of the basins of life

3. Create a network of local management units at the scale of the 4 territorial spaces and anticipate the availability of land for these infrastructures / equipment, and specifically for the recovery of bio-waste and inert waste.

4. Promote prevention and material recycling, capture and guide all waste streams from construction sites in 2025 to legal channels

5. Capture all hazardous waste streams by 2031 (diffuse hazardous waste)

6. Match the authorizations to operate energy recovery units with their available technical capacity and use them primarily for residual household and similar waste in 2025 and 2031, ensuring the optimization of their energy performance, as and when the requests filed in prefecture by the operators

7. Introduce a degression of the storage capacity of Non-Hazardous Waste Storage Facilities, as soon as regional planning comes into effect, consistent with the needs of the territories and have storage capacities for certain types of waste (ultimate waste). derived from natural or technical hazards, non-recoverable sediments and bottom ash, specific cells, etc.), as and when applications are filed in the prefecture by the operators

8. Have a mesh of ISDND ensuring the application of the principles of proximity and self-sufficiency to the 4 basins of life, integrating pre-treatment units of waste and limiting the risks of saturation

9. Put in place a policy of animation and accompaniment of stakeholders concerned by waste prevention and management in order to ensure the coordination necessary to achieve the objectives of the plan in order to reduce environmental impacts ( proximity logic, industrial and territorial ecology strategies, limitation of impacts related to transport, etc.).


The development of the Plan is based in particular on numerous exchanges, meetings and on the contributions made with the members of the Consultative Commission for Plan Development and Monitoring. All the stakeholders involved in waste management were thus involved throughout the process in order to react and formulate an opinion on the various stages of preparation and drafting of the draft Plan.

All of the Plan's objectives and priorities take into account the deliberations of the public corporations responsible for the treatment of waste.

In compliance with the European texts and the Environment Code, a set of recommendations and recommendations have been issued by the Plan in order to define a coherent and ambitious roadmap for all stakeholders to implement it.

All decisions made by public corporations and their dealers within the scope of the Plan shall be compatible with the Plan.

Derived from the NOTRe law, the regional schemes for planning, sustainable development and territorial equality (SRADDET) are governed by the ordinance of 27 July 2016. Today, this prescriptive scheme integrates several sectoral planning tools, including the Regional Plan for Prevention and Management of Waste (PRPGD).
