Solid Waste Management Plan Does my building need one?


Since 2010, when the National Solid Waste Policy was enacted through Law No. 12,305, among other things, the preparation of the PGRS has become mandatory for small and large waste generators.

How do you know if you are a small or large waste generator?

According to Law 13,478/02, all commercial establishments with waste generation above 200 liters per day, as well as condominiums in non-residential or mixed-use buildings, whose sum of solid waste, characterized as Class 2 waste by NBR 10,004, from ABNT, totaling an average daily volume equal to or greater than 1,000 (one thousand) liters, are considered large generators.

Therefore, they must hire a company responsible for carrying out the services of collection, transport, treatment and final disposal of the waste generated, keeping the original copy of the contract available for inspection.

Adriana Marques, Project Coordinator at Cushman & Wakefield, also points out that every CNPJ registered in the city of São Paulo needs to register with AMLURB and self-declare as a small or large generator of solid waste.

‘‘Having a Solid Waste Management Plan is the first step towards doing what is right for the environment, demonstrating commitment to global environmental goals and complying with local legislation’’, he explains.

Cushman & Wakefield offices in Brazil set an example

The Cushman & Wakefield Brasil offices in São Paulo, concerned about the environmental and legal responsibility of the subject, renewed their Solid Waste Management Plans and maintains a program to reduce the generation of waste in the offices, with guidance to employees.

Recently, the company's corporate sustainability area launched the Sustainable Attitude campaign, which distributed reusable cups in the offices and replaced plastic cups with paper ones, in order to cause less impact on the environment.

In addition to having its own internal initiatives for waste management and environmental awareness, Cushman & Wakefield's Sustainability Consulting helps owners and occupants of corporate, industrial and logistics real estate with its PGRS.
