On April 5, 2019, São Paulo Municipality published Decree No. 58,701 ("Decree"), regulating the Municipal Urban Cleaning System.

Among the innovations brought by the Decree, we highlight:

  • New classification for companies that generated high volumes of specific solid waste ("Companies"), subject to control mechanisms from the Municipality;
  • Companies' mandatory registration with Municipal Urban Cleaning Agency ("AMLURB");
  • Companies are expressly prohibited to dispose solid waste with entities that are not duly registered within the Municipal Urban Cleaning System.

Veirano's environmental team is highly experienced on the subject and is available to provide further clarification.
