Originally Answered: Un site internet sur le recyclage en France?
You do not mention in what language you want this information, and I assume you want it in French:
Voila plusieurs sites.
France started re-cycling well before many other countries. For many years after WW2 bottles of beer and pop had attached stoppers and you took them back to the shop where you bought them and got some money back. When we were children we collected these from neighbours and this enabled us to use the refund for pocket money. At one time in the 1970's supermarkets actually took back empty glass bottles of wine, beer and fizzy drinks for which they gave credits against your next bill. At present the collection of domestic waste is similar to that of the UK and follows EU recommendations.
The French association for recycling is called Federac.
France is very keen on recycling and they tackle everything: cars, computers, phones, even planes.
You can also donate unwanted items to charitable organisations such as Emmaüs , or the Secours catholique, that help people in need, not just by raising money, but setting them up with things like beds, furniture and electrical goods, and also provide them with second-hand house linen, blankets and clothing free of charge.
Good luck with your essay.
