Quero reciclagem popular-peticao

Deputy André Moura is trying to extend another eight years the deadline for municipalities across Brazil to close their open dumps. Municipalities have already had four years to conform to the national law. The 4th Conference of the Environment, which had 200,000 participants, was defined by the social inclusion of waste pickers and the closure of open dumps. The federal government provides a specific funding stream to support municipalities so that they follow the deadline of closing their open dumps and including the waste pickers that work on them. Sign the petition.
