The Observatoire Régional des Déchets d'île-de-France (ORDIF), or Ile-de-France Region Waste Management Observatory in English, is a French non-profit organization created on 23 November 1992 as a joint initiative between the government and the Ile-de-France region, with its regional focus deemed conducive to a global consideration of waste management. In order to adhere to objectives specified in the regulations, the management of household waste was to be reviewed in its entirety, with a particular focus on the Ile-de-France region.


The purpose of ORDIF is to extend knowledge, disseminate information and produce waste management indicators for the Ile-de-France. It constitutes a tool for analysis and ongoing monitoring, enabling technical waste management solutions to be developed for the Ile-de-France, most notably in the context of public policies. To this end, it creates, develops, manages and updates a database that can be integrated into the various statistical and regional geographic information systems. It also produces studies, surveys and tools based on items of scientific, economic and technical information, made available by the relevant partners and professionals in the Ile-de-France region.

ORDIF promotes exchanges between public, private and associative stakeholders within its area of responsibility. On a daily basis it centralises and disseminates news and events associated with waste management in the Ile-de-France and organises presentations and exchanges.

ORDIF’s spheres of activity[edit]

Observation of waste flows and tonnage in the Ile-de-France[edit]

  • The household and comparable waste summary describes the organisation of the public waste disposal service at an institutional level and offers a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the waste volumes managed by the relevant Ile-de-France local authorities.
  • The treatment installations atlas presents the different installations receiving household and comparable waste collected throughout the Ile-de-France region and the tonnage treated.
  • The survey on waste from economic activity deals with waste arisings, tonnage treated, flows and treatment channels.

Social and economic observation[edit]

  • The financial study reports on the funding of the public waste disposal service in the Ile-de-France and presents the mechanisms available to local authorities.
  • The costs study looks at extending our knowledge of the cost of household waste management borne by the public service.
  • The purpose of the survey assessing the status of the waste management “market” is to make waste administration procedures transparent.

Environmental observation[edit]

  • The study on the environmental observation of waste management in the Ile-de-France monitors regional indicators on behalf of local stakeholders and makes available evaluation methodologies.

Observation on a European scale[edit]

  • ORDIF wishes to forge links with other European conurbations to engage in dialogue and work together to define joint modes of observation.
  • ORDIF provides expertise in European projects regarding waste observation, for instance in the Pre-waste project.

Tools available to stakeholders in the Ile-de-France[edit]

  • The waste prevention guide offers a body of experience developed by various stakeholders aimed at taking concrete action on a daily basis to reduce the quantity and toxicity of household and comparable waste.
  • A common core guide to writing annual reports on the cost and quality of the public waste disposal service is available; its purpose is to help the relevant authorities write their annual report by listing statutory technical and financial indicators.

An overview of waste in the Ile-de-France[edit]

  • This describes, in a question and answer format, interventions and projects presented during meetings on the future of waste.
