29 tons of waste collected each day

Teams of Vinci highways come empty the nets every two weeks. These double mesh fillets have been designed with a double lens: holding a maximum of waste, small or large, but also do not disrupt the flow of rainwater, indicates the local chain.

If their effectiveness has been proven, these filters fail to recover all the wild waste thrown on the highway. Every day, the carrier network agents collect 29 tonnes of waste abandoned on the road. "Everyone must become aware that in his car, he must act in the same way as at home" , confided Michael Malher to France 3.
