Waste Management

Concerned about environmental quality, in 2011 Portonave began the waste management project in Navegantes. Currently, the project is coordinated by the Portonave Institute, which manages five mobile centers to collect recyclable and hazardous waste in the city.

The containers are available to the entire community for the adequate disposal of waste such as batteries, fluorescent lamps and cooking oil. The material collected is fully managed at the centers by an outsourced company and Portonave and the Portonave Institute guarantee the environmentally adequate disposal, mainly of hazardous waste.
