What are the good gestures of tri ?

You sometimes have doubts when sorting. Do not panic ! Here are 3 easy-to-apply Tri-flexes!

  • No need to wash your packaging, just empty them well! Bricks of milk or soup, pizza boxes, tins (tomato sauce, etc.), jars (terrine, jam, etc.) recycling ; if you wash them you are wasting water which must then be treated.


  • No need to remove the cap on the plastic bottle, it can also be recycled. And in general, small packaging elements can be sorted with their main packaging because they do not interfere with the recycling process. --> Examples: staples and tape on paper gifts, metal spirals on notebooks or plastic windows on envelopes.


  • Do not nest the packaging together and do not enclose it in plastic bags --> The packaging must be placed loose in the bins so as not to interfere the separation between materials that takes place in sorting centres.


And if you want to know what happens to the packaging after your sorting action, go to

What is the signage?

Contrary to popular belief, the Green Dot does not mean that the packaging is recyclable. It means that the company that sells this product participates financially in the collection, sorting and recycling of packaging. The Green Dot was created in France more than 20 years ago as part of Extended Producer Responsibility.



Green Dot sorting information is the signage, offered by Citeo, that companies can affix to their packaging in order to issue the correct sorting instruction to their consumers.



The TRIMAN is, since January 1, 2015, the reference logo to indicate that a product is recyclable. Unlike the green dot, it informs the consumer that the packaging falls under a sorting instruction.
