Mexico Environmental Export Market Plan
6. Solid Waste
· The Mexican federal government plays a minimal role in managing solid waste. This responsibility rests almost completely at the municipal level.
· The predominance of labor unions and scavenger unions that oppose modernization impede efforts to collect and dispose of municipal solid waste.
· In Mexico, an environmental ethic is just emerging, and most Mexican households and businesses do not separate wastes, thereby increasing recycling costs. Source: SEDESOL.
