La Poste Group and SUEZ have just received the Autorité de la Concurrence (French Competition Authority) agreement on the creation of a joint company specializing in the collection and recovery of office waste in France. This company will provide businesses with simple and innovative solutions based on a circular model that preserve resources. The company will have a firm footprint in the regions and will create local jobs.
The company will be called RECYGO, building on the Recy’go offer launched by La Poste in January 2012, and based on the social and responsible economy and with a strong focus on sustainable development.
RECYGO will be managed by Corinne Sieminski, former Director of Digital at SUEZ Recycling and Recovery in France, with a 20-years career at EDF then ENGIE (GDF SUEZ).
The new company will contribute to the implementation of the Law for the Energy Transition, which will make the sorting and recycling of paper compulsory on 1 January 2018 for all French employees working in an office with a headcount of 20 or more.
