The Triman symbol was implemented into French law and came into effect from 1 January 2015. The Triman symbol should be placed on any recyclable household packaging or product affected by Extended Producer Responsibility in France.

Three elements make up the symbol, which are inseparable:

  • Human silhouette which represents the consumer
  • Three arrows which symbolise sorting to allow for better waste treatment
  • Circular background which symbolises recycling
