Recyclable waste

More than 200 collection points

For your recyclable waste, the Community of Agglo has arranged sorting points throughout the territory. More than 200 were scattered in the 38 municipalities of the community. Within a reasonable radius of your home, you therefore have this equipment available to you, accessible 24 hours a day, where you can deposit glass bottles, cardboard boxes, newspapers, paper, textiles, packaging, etc.


Today, with the extension of sorting instructions, all recyclable packaging must be placed in the yellow terminals.

– plastic or aluminum trays
– bags and sachets
– plastic films
– toothpaste tubes
– yoghurt pots, cream pots
– soda cans
– plastic bottles, …

All this packaging is to be sorted and no longer to be thrown into the blue bag.

For the inhabitants whose terminals are already in service in their municipality, it is therefore necessary now to deposit these recyclable packaging in bulk and without bags.
The terminals are accessible 7 days a week and 7 hours a day!
The yellow sorting terminals are in place in all the 38 municipalities of the territory.
The use of the orange bag is now prohibited!
If the terminal is full, out of respect for public spaces and local residents, you will have to go to another nearby terminal (via the sydem'app application); do not put your trash on the ground.
In addition, all other types of waste (furniture, electrical appliances, wood, tyres, etc.) must be deposited in the recycling center.

All recyclable packaging must be deposited loose and unbagged in the yellow terminals. Plastic or aluminum trays, bags and sachets, plastic films, toothpaste tubes, yoghurt pots, cream pots, soda cans, plastic bottles, etc.

All papers can be sorted and recycled, cards too.
The paper terminals make it possible to preserve the quality of the sorting of paper and cardboard packaging which is no longer mixed with other soiled waste.
Large boxes must be dropped off at the recycling center!

All glass packaging can be sorted and recycled endlessly.
Glass bottles, jars, flasks and jars (transparent and colored glass) are recyclable. Once emptied, you can put them in the glass containers (without their caps and caps).

All clothing textiles, linens, soft toys and shoes can have a second life. They just need to be clean and dry.
Union Sort
is a partner of many local authorities who are committed to a waste prevention plan. The collection of textiles makes it possible to capture approximately 6 kg of textiles per year and per inhabitant

On request

bulky items

The inhabitants of the municipalities who have joined the service must proceed as follows:

What items are accepted?

These are exclusively certain categories of waste from households and which, due to their size (large objects), cannot be loaded into passenger vehicles and deposited in the recycling center.
Here are examples of waste accepted during the collection of bulky items (this list is not exhaustive and our services will be able to answer you):
– large household appliances (washing machine, refrigerator, freezer, hot water tank, etc.)
– plastic water drums or oil tanks (cut in half)
– carpet rolls
– plastic slide
– PVC frames (windows, doors)
- ...

What items are not accepted?

- the furniture
– professional waste
- roasting
– the rubble

This waste must be presented at the edge of the public road to facilitate loading. Our agents are not allowed to enter private property. Other waste must be brought by individuals to the recycling centers made available to them. Users of municipalities who did not wish to benefit from this service must, for their part, go to the recycling centers for all types of waste not collected door to door.


Services for professionals

Specific door-to-door collections and a professional recycling center are available to non-households.
However, access to these services requires the validation of specific agreements.

Frequently Asked Questions

As a reminder, since March 1, 2022, sorting instructions have been simplified: all packaging can be sorted.

You can deposit in the yellow sorting terminal all empty plastic and metal packaging and food bricks (no need to wash them) and not nested one inside the other: metal packaging such as tin cans, empty medicine blisters, coffee capsules or aluminum foil, food trays, sachets, plastic packaging, pots of yoghurt, cream, butter but also tubes of toothpaste, tubes of glue or nets …

It is the Community of Agglomeration which is in charge of emptying the terminals, and they are emptied at least once a week and are accessible at any time.

You can head to another terminal nearby. To locate the nearest terminal, you can download the Sydem'App app.

Above all, do not leave your waste on the ground, which will attract others and degrade the environment.

You can also inform the Agglo by calling the toll-free number listed on each terminal.

The quality of sorting in the orange bags was no longer acceptable for our sorting center and generated significant additional costs.

The Community of Agglo was accompanied and advised by a specific structure to set up yellow sorting terminals intended for packaging waste. Indeed the quantities and qualities of waste through sorting terminals are much better from a national point of view.

If you still have orange bags in your possession, you can use them for storing and transporting packaging to the sorting terminals.

Once the bag has been emptied into the terminal, you can reuse it or throw it away because it is also packaging.

No, it is important not to nest (interlock) the waste because this complicates the sorting gesture on the recycling mat.

This waste is sorted by hand and could therefore be refused.

The waste is sent to the Chavelot sorting center in the Vosges to be sorted and returned to recycling plants.

Some examples of recycling: with tin cans we will make pétanque balls or scooter frames. Or with 10 bottles of water we will be able to make a polar sweater.

All sorting terminals have a hatch accessible to people with reduced mobility and children.
In case of difficulty getting around, I can contact the service by calling the green number 0800 19 18 80 (from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 13:30 p.m. to 17:30 p.m.) to find the most suitable solution together.

The Agglo has worked in collaboration with the municipalities to select the most suitable locations.

Many constraints such as land availability, the possibility of parking in complete safety, the possibility of emptying the terminals with collection trucks, proximity, etc. were taken into account in particular to make these choices.

The elected officials, after studying the different collection methods, felt that the latter would make it possible to achieve the quantitative and qualitative sorting objectives while controlling the costs associated with this service as well as possible.

It is up to the Agglo to check that the sorting instructions are properly applied. In the event of non-compliance with the instructions, he exposes himself to a refusal to collect his trash.

Indeed, this waste will not be recovered and will go to landfill or incineration, which must be avoided at all costs.

You can go to Sydem'app, the Sydeme mobile app that can be downloaded for free from the Apple store and Google Play. Practical and free, it makes day-to-day sorting easier thanks to geolocated access to go to multi-flow hotlines and sort your waste with ease!
You can also contact us on the green number 0800 19 18 80 (from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 13 p.m. to 30 p.m.). We will answer all your questions. There is also a team that goes to the citizens to whom we have refused the trash during sorting checks and who can explain and make you understand your mistakes.


You will have to go to the Maison de l'Habitat, at 99 rue du Maréchal Foch in Sarreguemines with proof of address. You will be given your Sydem'Pass card, your allocation of multi-flow bags, a shopping bag for depositing packaging and paper at a sorting point, as well as the memo-sorting, free of charge. You can also purchase a twin-bag bin to make multi-flow sorting more easily (bio-waste and residual waste in bags).

Changes of address are also made at the Maison de l'Habitat with proof of address.
If you leave the Community of Commune of Bitche or the Community of Agglomeration of Forbach, you must first return your card to your old community before creating a new one.

You will have to go to the Community Technical Center, 2 rue Jean-Baptiste Dumaire in Sarreguemines with a kbis extract.

Two options are available to you :
• or by going directly to the premises of SYDEME, taking care beforehand to make an appointment on 03 87 00 01 01.
• Or, by mail, specifying your contact details (name, first name, address, telephone number and/or email address).
In both cases, you will have to pay a payment of 2€. You can pay this amount in cash or by check. The check should then be made payable to 'Régie de Recettes' and sent to the following address: SYDEME 5 rue Jacques Callot 1 MORSBACH.

As an individual, the Sydem'Pass is limited to 1 per household. As a professional, you can have several cards. From the 2nd card, it will be charged 5 euros per unit.

Good sorting habits

From now on, all packaging is sorted in the yellow terminals! In addition to plastic bottles and flasks, steel and aluminum packaging and food cartons: Trays, pots, cups, plastic boxes, tubes, pouches, plastic nets, plastic caps, sachets, blisters and films in plastic are also to be placed in the yellow terminals. The packaging must not be nested, nor washed, but well emptied.

We will no longer deposit a lot of waste there:
Plastic objects that are not packaging: toothbrushes, pens, gardening pots, etc.
Household waste: vacuum cleaner bags, cigarettes, cold ashes, etc.
Hygiene waste: diapers, sanitary napkins, make-up remover cotton pads, dressings, disposable gloves, masks, etc.

The lids are part of the packaging and as such are sorted and are well placed in the yellow terminal
The extension of sorting instructions simplifies sorting because now all packaging can be placed in the yellow terminals; it also helps to remove doubts about sorting errors even among good sorters. The extension also allows manufacturers to develop packaging that could not be recycled until now.
Orange fillets, aluminium/plastic coffee capsules, empty medicine blisters, glue tubes, toothpaste tubes, cosmetic cream tubes, compote gourds, bolduc…
You can download the Sydem'App application or contact us on the green number 0800 19 18 80.
No, products such as paint pots, cans of gardening or swimming pool products, for example, must be dropped off at one of our waste collection centers in the area with your Sydem'Pass.

No, all this waste is to be deposited in the blue paper terminals. They are very often located next to yellow sorting terminals, glass bubbles and textile terminals. To find out about all the sorting points, go to the Sydem'App.
