First Phase


Data rising on SWM generation of each municipality, amount and composition-diagnosis of generation, collection situation, transportation, treatment and final disposal of each Consortia’s city.

Just over half of the 29 Consortia completed a diagnosis of SWM generation of each municipality. On other side, analyzing the responses per region, the South stands out with over 80% of accomplishment.


Studies of economic and financial viability of the Consortia and the environmental and social studies of the damage caused by missing or incorrect forms of SWM. In addition to territorial studies, land use occupation, and distance between the cities.

Of the 29 consortia, less than 40% had both studies. However, the Northeast region stands out with 63% in studies of economic viability, but in studies of environmental and social impacts their participation is below 40%. Of the 29 consortia, only half held territorial studies, land use occupation and distance between the municipalities.


It can be considered as the Integrated Solid Waste Management Plans (Municipal and Inter-municipal)

12 Consortia reported not having any of the plans, only 7 have noted the Municipal Plan and 4 the Inter-municipal. The others did not answer.


Consultation and involvement of stakeholders: municipal cleaning agencies; SWM NGOs; neighboring communities to landfills; population of the municipality seat; sector companies; recycling cooperatives. Also, involving interest groups: State and/or Municipal Secretariats of Cities, Environment, Urban Planning, Health, Sanitation, Municipal Councils.

Of the 29 Consortia, only 30% held consultations and involved stakeholders in the Consortia formation process and half consulted the Secretariats that somehow have activities related to SWM.
