Household Waste

Rubbish Collection

In Trie, rubbish is disposed of via rubbish bins that are collected curb-side once a week. Bins must meet certain specifications in order to be compatible with rubbish collection vehicles, therefore they must be purchased from a specific supplier. The bins are available in two sizes (120 litres and 660 litres) and can be purchased from Plastic Omnium.

The SMECTOM website has information on rubbish pick up days by commune.

Recycling and Reuse

Recycling is collected curb-side every week in Trie. A recycling bin is provided by SMECTOM free of charge for each household and it remains the property of SMECTOM. In case of a change of address or if in need of a new bin, contact SMECTOM.

SMECTOM operates a “Recyclerie” in Lannemezan where usable items discarded at the Capvern déchètterie are inspected, cleaned and if necessary, repaired, so they can be resold for a second life. The scheme reduces waste and provides employment for at-risk people.
