Waste, the practical guide

The rubbish hunt is on!

For several years now, the Vars resort has been committed to the best possible management of the rubbish that is generated during the tourist season:

Selective sorting

Vars has set up a system of selective sorting by voluntary contribution.
The resort has thus multiplied the number of collection points where different containers (molok) are installed, separating the large families of household waste:
- packaging,
- paper,
- glass

This clean solution enables efficient and environmentally-friendly waste collection.

The other rubbish:
- Brown corrugated cardboard boxes should be deposited in the containers provided for this purpose or at the waste disposal centre.
- Bio-waste can be composted at home, if you have a garden,

A zero-waste region

The municipal reserve of Val D'Escreins is an unspoilt natural area that should be protected.
It is also, like any mountain environment, a fragile environment to be respected.
The Vars resort has chosen to reorganise the rubbish collection by making you responsible.
In the context of the Zero Waste area, you will be made aware of the impact of rubbish in the mountains.
Bins have been installed at the entrance to the access road.
This voluntary drop-off point enables the sorting of packaging, glass and non-recyclable waste.
We invite you to take your rubbish bins out of the storeroom and put them in these bins.

Better waste management

Landscape and living environment are essential factors for Vars. The environment is the very reason for our economic development. This is why all professionals (ski lifts, restaurants, etc.), also clean up by recovering and recycling engine oils from machines, rags, batteries, frying oils, wooden and plastic crates...

Scrap and bulky items are regularly collected (once or twice a year) throughout the municipality. For scrap collection this year, please book with Vars Town Hall . Don't hesitate to book!

about the ski slopes, villages, rivers... in short, everywhere! Vars rallies and organises a big clean-up in Spring. To your gloves everyone... practitioners, professionals, locals and holiday-makers!

Thanks to your actions, the amount of rubbish is decreasing, year after year.

There are no small measures for this great cause that is the environment!

Zero plastic waste objective

Zero plastic waste, let's get it right!
Inhabitants, businesses, tourists, communities, everyone can take action. Zero Plastic Waste is one of the 100 actions of the Climate Plan for the Southern Region. Bottles, cups, plastic bags, let's get it right!

• Eliminate all plastic waste on land and in nature
• Actively fight against marine pollution
• Enhance the value of all plastic waste produced annually in the region
• Support the development of recycling channels and eco-design

The ambition of the Southern Region is to apply the Zero Plastic Waste objective to all its policies and areas of operation:
• Accompany the transformation of waste into a resource
• Encourage a change in behaviours and promote sorting
• Combat harm to the environment by plastics and support innovative initiatives.
