Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, several million masks have been discarded in France – those that haven't just been thrown away on the streets or littered in the countryside. Carrefour now wants to recycle surgical masks nationwide and is launching an initial drive to collect them from ten Carrefour stores* in the Paris region to do so. The retailer is also calling upon companies in the recycling sector to offer long-term mask recycling solutions.
