Transformation of the former illegal landfill site underway

28 July 2022

On Thursday 19 May, ECT organised a visit to the rehabilitation site at Boissy/Puiseux with the Prefect of Val-d’Oise in attendance.

At the end of January 2022, clean-up operations began at the former illegal dump. The management, sorting, and evacuation of the 14,000 m3 of waste is an essential step in the transformation of this site.

The visit enabled Philippe Court, Prefect of Val d’Oise, Michel GUIARD, Mayor of Boissy-l’Aillerie, Thierry THOMASSIN, Mayor of Puiseux-Pontoise, as well as members present from the municipal councils, the Cergy-Pontoise Urban Community and the Val d’Oise Departmental Council, to see the progress of the work. They were also able to see the advanced state of waste removal and efficiency of the sorting platform, carried out by the company REVA.

It was an opportunity to present to the landowner and vice-president of the Val d’Oise Chamber of Agriculture and the president of the French Vexin Regional Nature Park, the future points of interest of the landscape, as well as the environmental renewal and agricultural redevelopment plan.

The site renovation project is financed by the inert soil inputs made by ECT, which will begin in the second half of 2022.

The Val d’Oise Prefecture and Gendarmerie Nationale discussed the challenges of combating illegal dumping, a major environmental threat.
