The Province of Buenos Aires strengthens its solid waste management

Lavola supported  the Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan of the Municipalities of Matanza-Riachuelo River Basin (ACUMAR) in the Province of Buenos Aires.

This project has provided  ACUMAR’s River Basin Authorityan assessment of the current solid waste collection service in 14 municipalities as well as  the design of an improved new collection service. This will serve as the basis for the formulation of ACUMAR’s Solid Waste Collection Programme.

The scope of the plan includes solid waste generated by households and businesses as well as Universal Waste, such as batteries, and used tyres, among others.

Solid waste has been one of the main causes of the historical degradation suffered by the Matanza Riachuelo River basin. The plan is expected to provide sustainable solutions that will ensure an efficient and integrated solid waste management in the region.
