ORDIF is a non-profit organisation bringing together Ile-de-France public and private waste management stakeholders (the state, the regional authority, intercommunal groups and communes, waste professionals, associations, etc.). It is in charge of a territory of 12,000 km² and a population of 11 700 000 inhabitants, the highest density being in Paris (20 700 inhabitants/km²).

ORDIF’s purpose is to extend knowledge, disseminate information on waste management in Ile-de-France and to produce indicators, in particular by developing studies, surveys and database on waste flows and tonnage, as well as social, economic and environmental observation. The results are tools for analysis and monitoring, enabling to develop technical waste management solutions in the region, most notably in the context of public policies. ORDIF also promotes exchanges between public, private and associative stakeholders within its area of responsibility and disseminates news and events related to waste management.

ORDIF proved its expertise in all waste issues, including prevention, for instance through its work with ADEME on a guide for local authorities to implement prevention initiatives. Its methodologies, especially regarding monitoring and indicators are considered as efficient and neutral which confers it legitimacy in its responsibility of Pre-waste’s “component 4” on building up of shared indicators and web tool for monitoring waste prevention policies effectiveness, based on these indicators. In particular, ORDIF will bring added value to the consolidation of data and the development of relevant indicators based on items of scientific, economic and technical information, made available by public and private partners.

It will also be involved concretely in other components of the project, in particular communication activities (publication of press releases, organisation of a national event on waste prevention and a press conference), the identification of good practices, the implementing of some of these good practices on its territory and the drafting of feasibility studies, as well as the participation in a shared methodology to help local authorities implement an effective waste prevention strategy.
