In the average French commune, each inhabitant generates 392 kg of trash annually. In tourist-oriented communes, the figure rises to 496 kg per inhabitant per year.
For many years, we have been committed to an ecologically responsible approach to reduce our own waste.
In 2015, with your enthusiastic involvement, we managed to significantly reduce our waste production.
Concretely, 2.98 litres of non-sorted waste and 1.41 litre of sorted waste were generated per guest per day.
The total comes to 193.545 litres of non-sorted waste and 91.575 litres of sorted waste. This represents a decrease in waste by 4.2% compared to 2014!!
Recycling is a way to make the most of waste by using it as a raw material. The compost produced by recycling organic waste makes it possible to enrich and improve the fertility of our land, regenerating the soil and bringing more life to it. Compost retains water, lightens clay-based soils, protects plants against disease, limits the differences in soil temperature throughout the day, and more.
A compost barrel is provided for your use in the aromatic herb garden. Buckets are available at the campsite reception desk so that you may transport your vegetable peels and other organic waste to the compost barrel.
An increasing number of materials may be recycled, including paper, cardboard, glass, metal and plastics.
Don’t throw away your plastic bottle caps! We recuperate them for a non-profit association which sells bottle caps to finance equipment to help children with Spinal Muscular Atrophies.
A cardboard recuperation bin is also available for your use (separately from the paper, glass and battery containers).
This summer, a plastic bottle compressor will also be available for your use on-site.
feel free to make any suggestions that you might have to help us further improve the system.
