Centre for the treatment and valorisation of household waste;
The Econotre waste recovery and treatment centre was commissioned in 2001 as part of a Public Service Delegation to address the waste management needs of the Decoset Mixed Association (see Decoset article), grouping together 158 municipalities from the north of Haute-Garonne.
A true multi-sector hub, Econotre, a subsidiary of SITA France (SUEZ Environnement urban cleaning centre) manages at the Bessières site the activities of the various waste recovery and treatment facilities, including:
• An energy recovery unit for household and similar waste,
• A recovery unit for clinker,
• A sorting centre for recyclable waste from various collection points.
Econotre is also a mandatee of the green waste composting centre in Léguevin and the transfer centres of L’Union, Colomiers, Grenade and Belberaud.
With the growth of industrial tourism, Econotre is delighted to receive numerous visit requests from groups in addition to monthly public visits grouping together individual requests.
