Collecting shoreline waste
Since 2001 the Bayonne & Basque Country Chamber of Commerce & Industry has entrusted the MIFEN association (Maison d’Initiation à la Faune et aux Espaces Naturels) with collecting, sorting, eliminating and recycling shoreline waste.
This operation combines an environmental mission with a social mission: the professional reintegration of local beneficiaries of the RSA (welfare allowance), whilst promoting vocational training and qualifications.
