Public Waste Management – An investment for the future of the cities - Brazilian edition

In 2009 PricewaterhouseCoopers Brazil developed a study for the Brazilian Association of Public Waste Management (ABLP) and Sao Paulo´s Association of Public Waste Management (SELUR) to understand different public waste management models around the globe. Comparing six Brazilian cities (Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Brasilia, Goiania and Salvador) and eight world cities (London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, New York, Tokyo, Mexico City and Buenos Aires), we analysed the legal, financial and management structures used to provide public waste management services.
