The Rio de Janeiro City Hall adopted the Lixo Zero campaign

Lixo Zero Campanha

The Lixo Zero Program, an initiative promoted by the Rio de Janeiro City Hall in partnership with COMLURB (Urban Cleaning Company), was a successful case in reducing the disposal of solid waste on the streets.

Aimed at improving urban hygiene in Rio de Janeiro, the program, which began in July 2013, mobilized agents from COMLURB, the Municipal Guard, and the Military Police, who joined forces to issue fines to those caught disposing of waste on the public roads of the city.

This approach aimed to ensure the effectiveness of the Urban Cleaning Law and, at the same time, raise awareness among the population about the importance of avoiding improper waste disposal on streets, beaches, squares, and other public areas.

The impact of Lixo Zero on Urban Cleaning Law 3273/2001

Despite its importance, the Urban Cleaning Law 3273/2001 only began to reach its potential from 2013 when the Lixo Zero inspection app was launched to improve the fight against improper waste disposal, as Rio de Janeiro would host the Olympic Games in 2016.
