- Four billion plastic cups are used in France each year. Office staff each use three disposable cups per day, equating to 32,000 tons of waste per year. 60% of these cups go to landfill, 39% are burnt and only 1% of used disposable cups are recycled.
- In services companies, paper and cardboard make up the main waste, and account for 80% of office trash can content. Less than half of paper sheets are currently recycled in France.
