Resulting from the Grenelle Environment Forum, the new recycling pictogram was created on January 1, 2015. The common TRIMAN symbol is a visual identifier used to clearly and unambiguously identify recyclables that should be collected separately when spent.
TRIMAN Symbol for Better Sorting
TRIMAN according to the ADEME (French Environment and Energy Management Agency)
"TRIMAN is a symbol that meets a regulatory obligation and is distributed to consumers. As per the implementation decree relative to common symbols on recyclables with specific sorting instructions, anyone putting recyclables on the market... must include a common symbol on their products or on the packaging, instructions for use or any other material (including paperless materials), informing the consumer that it has sorting instructions."
This symbol concerns all recyclables with sorting instructions that are subject to Extended Producer Responsibility measures, excluding electrical and electronic equipment, batteries and accumulators and household hazardous waste (subject to specific markings, notably under European obligations).
