Who does what?

ADIVALOR’s performance depends largely on the principal of shared responsibility amongst private agri-supplies companies:

  • Users, mainly farmers, are asked to prepare and store products at the end of their life cycle, and to bring back their waste packaging to specific depots on dates set by their distributors.
  • Distributors, cooperatives and dealers are responsible for organizing the collection, storage and regrouping of that waste
  • Market players (manufacturers, traders) finance the recovery and treatment of waste, as well as ADIVALOR's operational plans, via a specific eco-tax.

The organization also relies on support from the Chambers of Agriculture and other professional organizations to relay information to farmers and coordinate the organization of collections throughout the country.

ADIVALOR outlines the technical practicalities of the collections, as well as organising and financing all or part of the elimination of PPPs at the end of their life cycle. It also operates in the initial stages of the process, during the preparatory and organizational phases. It offers communication tools and teaching aids to operators and deploys R&D programmes with an aim to improve the recovery and optimization of waste collected.




The financing of the scheme is possible thanks to the contribution of all market players in the value chain, such as manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and traders.

  •  60 industrialists working within the plant protection industry
  • 113 societies for fertilizing and soil-enriching products
  • 125 industrialists within the seed sector 
  • 23 manufacturers of agricultural plastic films
  • 17 manufacturers of dairy farm hygiene products
  • 14 manufacturers or traders of bale twine and net wrapping

The functioning of collection is guaranteed by the agricultural distribution groups, cooperatives and businesses which provide logistical and human resources.
The organization of collection schemes benefits from the support of the Chambers of Agriculture and other local agricultural organisations.

  • 1,200 partnering distributors and 6000 collection points
  • There are partnering organisations in 22 regions of Metropolitan France and its Overseas Territories.
