    Sita - nettoyage des plages sur le littoral landais

    As a response of the Landes General Counsil requirements on conservation of the environment, SITA provides Landes beaches cleaning throughout the year with a mandate to avoid waste dispersion in the ocean.

    To protect the dune and the back dune, cradle of rare spiecies, even protected, cleaning is limited on foreshore and stops at the base of the dune.

    Tractors are geolocated, which leads to control respect of cleaning routes at specific times. They are also equipped with embedded systems, creating a direct link with the collectivity.

    SITA adapts its services to volumes and waste types :

    • During bad wheather of 2013 that devastated a part of Landes, staff members have been doubled
    • In summer, routines are done by night and tractors are equipped with sieving machines to pick up thinner waste as cigarette butts
