The territorialisation of the circular economy: how to integrate proximity into the circulation of waste products

Abstract : Circular flows in urban areas are examined from a new point of view using the concept of the circular economy. This concept aims to emphasise the control of material flows wthin the context of a strong political policy. At the same time, no territorial perimeters are defined to make this concept operational. Is it a question of territories for waste management or of administrative territories? To understand these issues, this article is based on the last pillar of the circular economy, namely waste management. Waste management is controlled by certain norms, including the principle of proximity, designed to ensure the management of waste as close as possible to the point of origin. While this principle introduces a spatial dimension into waste management, its adoption varies between different actors. Having identified the political dimension of proximity and the way in which it is made operational (due notably to mapping the flows), the article aims to identify the forms of action which, according to the actors interviewed, will allow the concept of proximity to be used in the management of waste.
