What is the National Solid Waste Policy?.

The National Solid Waste Policy (PNRS) is the law No. 12,305, which was approved in 2010 and regulated by Decree 7.404 / 10. The PNRS tries to organize in a more transparently how industries, the government and the ultimate consumers should treat the waste and tailings generated.

Environmentally speaking, the National Solid Waste Policy should act as a watershed, as it is focused in all kinds of waste, whether industrial or urban, the reuse of it, its correct disposal and the reverse logistics. If properly applied, we can expect a significant decrease in unlicensed landfills, and the consequent reduction in soil and water contamination, and even a reduction in the emission of carbon dioxide, which is very harmful to the environment, since it increases the greenhouse effect.

One of the most important issues addressed on the National Solid Waste Policy is reverse logistics, since they oblige importers, industries, distributors and sellers to create mechanisms so that these wastes can be collected after use by final consumers, and have the most appropriate destination. Failure to comply with this law leads to a federal crime, where punishments can reach 5 years imprisonment, in addition to fines.
