We are delighted that one of the first new releases in 2024 is just that. The launch of our project in Lyon, France, took place on 16 January and the cooperation was signed by all key partners:: SYTRAD (experts in waste management and recycling), Urban'Ext (designer and manufacturer of street furniture from the industrial waste of the recycling of beverage cartons), Comodis (specialist in the distribution of hygiene and cleaning products and equipment in local authorities based in the Drôme in France), including Circular Shield and Lucart.
Niko Kumar also took part in the press conference for us and pointed out: ,,The launch of the first MMC in France is a result of reliable and visionary partners that have committed to make MMC truly alive and effective by engaging public institutions and other organizations. This way the MMC will contribute also in reaching higher rates of collection and recycling of waste packaging in the region.”
Statistics say that two-thirds of beverage cartons in France end up in black bins, which are there, as here, for mixed municipal waste. This is a great pity, because it automatically makes it impossible to recycle them.
We are very happy that they have decided to take this step in France and thanks to this we in Slovakia are gaining a strong and stable partner with whom we can support each other and exchange know-how.
