ENVIRONMENT: How the ecosite treats Irma waste


On the French side, the waste is sorted at the ecosite which in 2017 received two and a half times its annual volume. It therefore had to reorganize. While the site is designed to process around 35 tonnes of waste per year, it received 000 tonnes in 85 and already 240 tonnes between January and June 2017. 

"We had to bring a complete installation from a partner in Guadeloupe (SNR) who rents the installation to us," explains Patrick Villemin, president of Verde Sxm. It is Ludwick Breton, said Lulu, of SNR who has the upper hand on the functioning of this whole grinding and sorting chain. He arrived on the island last November but could not really start grinding until mid-July. The grinding chain has therefore been in operation for just over two months and has already ground 300 tonnes of scrap metal (sheets, ELVs cleaned up and dismantled, etc.).

Once they reach 4000 tonnes of crushed scrap, they will load trucks to transport them by boat through the port of Galisbay to France, Belgium or Spain, where they will be recovered.
