Collecting and recycling waste

Management of WEEE

Aware of the significant impact of waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), the Group has historically been committed to taking back old equipment from its customers.

For more than ten years, when a large piece of equipment is delivered to a customer’s home, the customer has had the option of handing over one or more appliances to delivery personnel. The latter then entrust them to the non-profit eco-organization Ecosystem, approved to recycle WEEE.

More than 44,285 metric tons of WEEE were collected in 2022.

For small items and other consumables (batteries, bulbs, ink cartridges, etc.), the customer has the option to drop them off at the collection points placed in all stores, whether or not they have been purchased from one of the Group’s brands.


Optimization of packaging waste

Fnac Darty’s logistics activities mainly generate packaging waste: pallets of products protected by plastic film and cardboard packaging for packages to be delivered to customers’ homes or to stores as part of the Click&Collect service.

In order to limit packaging and the impact of the waste it generates, Fnac Darty uses two levers: optimization, in order to reduce the quantity of cardboard and the space occupied on trucks; and reuse, thanks to optimized waste management and the use of recycled pallets.
