Survey on non-hazardous waste in wholesale and retail trade

Paru le :Paru le17/06/2024

The purpose of the survey on non-hazardous waste in wholesale and retail trade is to estimate the national production of non-hazardous waste from commercial establishments, by physical volume and classed by type of waste and by sector of activity.

It also addresses the new European regulation on measuring food waste.

This themed survey only deals with non-hazardous waste. Data on hazardous waste is obtained by consulting the annual  administrative declarations for hazardous waste fulfilled by establishments (database on directory polluting emissions directory : BDREP).

For the 2022 edition, the survey on non-hazardous waste production on trade has been merged with the survey in the service sector, creating a tertiary survey.

This survey follows on from other surveys, in particular the one conducted in 2005 (data from 2004) by the Environment and Energy Management Agency (Ademe) and the French Institute for the Environment (Ifen) on the quasi totality of the trade field.

The survey is conducted by INSEE since 2007.

The Waste Survey for the tertiary sector combines the Waste Surveys for trade and services due to the similarity of the questionnaires offered to these sectors for the 2022 edition.
