Excavation from Ile-de-France construction sites in Essonne: the department opposes the storage project in Saint-Hilaire


A motion was passed unanimously at the departmental council meeting on Monday. The community asks the State to refuse any

In six years of mandate, it was the 44th and last motion submitted to the elected officials of the departmental council of Essonne.

It was adopted unanimously at the last meeting, this Monday, and aims to "oppose the project to create an inert waste storage facility (ISDI) in the town of Saint-Hilaire".

The departmental advisers ask the State to "refuse the authorization by any project leader whatsoever aiming to deposit on the site of the localities Ardenne - La Saboterie waste of any kind whatsoever".

1.4 million cubic meters of land

"This motion follows the strong mobilization Sunday, May 3 in the south of Essonne," recalls Anne Launey, elected (EELV) of the canton of Palaiseau and member of the opposition group Rassemblement de la gauche et des ecologists (RGE).

This project concerns a 34 hectare site on which it is planned to store 1.4 million cubic meters of inert earth.

This causes a strong ecological concern.


Brigitte Vermillet, vice-president (LR) in charge of ecological transition and green growth, stressed that this motion had been worked on "by all the groups in the department".

"Everyone has put their sensibilities, but we have arrived at a common document that reflects our shared concerns," says the elected.

On Sunday, during the mobilization, the more than 300 demonstrators spoke of the earth embankments emanating from the work carried out in the context of construction sites in Greater Paris.

"At this stage, the Société du Grand Paris has not been informed of this project carried by the Bouygues company," said François Durovray, president (LR) of the departmental council of Essonne.

The prefect, whom I alerted after learning about it through local actors such as departmental councilor Guy Crosnier, was also not seized of the case.

The motion also asks the State to "do everything in its power to put in place a recycling and treatment system for earth excavated during major urban and infrastructure projects".

Tuesday afternoon, the supervisory board of the SGP made a progress report on the strategy of management of the spoil. “In terms of recovery, we have set ourselves an ambitious target of 70% recovery, explains the Société du Grand Paris, which is developing the future metro lines 15, 16, 17 and 18. To date, this rate is 47 % but we are working to identify and make all possible avenues of recovery more reliable: backfilling of gypsum quarries, reuse on construction sites, recycling or even urban development.
