Now, sports and leisure items can be sorted in Chamrousse!

Bring your skis, snowboards, snowshoes, masks, ice skates, sledges, poles and ski boots to the special skip at the Chamrousse 1750 - Roche Béranger waste centre. They will be entrusted to the eco-organisation Ecologic, approved to manage their end-of-life.
This approach is in line with the protection of the environment in connection with the AGEC law (Anti-Waste Law for a Circular Economy), by which the public authorities have approved the Ecologic eco-organisation to manage the end of life of sports and leisure articles.

Who is Ecologic?

Ecologic is an eco-organisation approved by the State to manage three national channels for the prevention and recycling of used or end-of-life products: electrical and electronic equipment (EEE), sports and leisure equipment (ASL) and DIY and garden equipment for the thermal equipment part (ABJth).
Since 2006, it has been contributing to the development of a circular economy throughout France, based on information and awareness-raising activities, repair, reuse, collection and treatment of products and waste, by mobilising all the players involved: producers and manufacturers, distributors, collection and treatment operators, local authorities, institutions and public authorities, companies, associations, consumers, media, etc.)
