Presentation of the new waste sorting guidelines

Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, Councilor of Government – Minister of Equipment, Environment and Urbanism, Jean-Luc Puyo, Director of Urban Planning, Thomas Battaglione, Director General Director of SMEG and Edgar Enrici, Director of the SMA, presented the new waste sorting guidelines and the “Mag du Tri”.

“The action of the Princely Government has for several years focused on the optimisation of waste recovery through recycling and the reduction of their production. Thanks to the recent modernisation of the sorting centre and the simplification of the collection, the aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the amount of recyclable waste,” said Marie-Pierre Gramaglia.


Today, in order to make the sorting by colours more legible, the blue disappears to leave only 2 shades to remember, green and yellow. What went into the blue box can now be placed in the yellow bin. The green bin remains for the glass.

To accompany the user, the “Mag du Tri” has 12000 copies distributed in the mailboxes of the Principality. A team of “Ambassadors of Tri”, has the role of supporting, educating and informing the private as the professionals on the proper management of their waste.

Thomas Battaglione emphasised that “in Monaco, sorting is easy, connected and useful: sorting is simplified, glass terminals are equipped with the Cliiink device (, and the waste is valorised either for a second life or a transformation in the raw material.”

Four Ambassadors of Tri can be reached at the SMA: +377 92 05 75 16 or N ° Vert: 8000 20 40
