Ministerial Resolution No. 089-2023-MINAM approving the Minimum Content of the Non-Municipal Solid Waste Minimization and Management Plan was published on 9 March 2023.
It should be recalled that the Non-Municipal Solid Waste Minimization and Management Plan (PMMRS), also called Solid Waste Management Plan, is part of the Environmental Management Strategy, or the one that takes its place, included in the corresponding Environmental Management Instrument. The publication of the PMMRS content had been put on hold by the Ministry of Environment since 2017, with the issuance of the Regulation of Legislative Decree No. 1278, approving the Law on Integrated Solid Waste Management.
The PMMRS aims to prevent or minimize the generation of solid waste to ensure an efficient use of resources, inputs and materials, promoting the transition to a circular economy and to proper management and handling of solid waste.
The plan has 13 sections. Among the main ones are the following:
- Identification of the sources of solid waste generation
- Prevention and/or minimization strategy
- Management and handling of solid waste
- Description of environmental measures
- Emergency response measures
- Discard material, among others
This regulation is applicable both for the sectorial and environmental authorities, as well as for the owners of projects or activities, in the elaboration of environmental studies and complementary environmental management instruments.
It should be noted that the information contained in the PMMRS must be consistent with what the generator of non-municipal solid waste will include in the Annual Declaration of Non-Municipal Solid Waste, as well as in the Manifests of Hazardous Solid Waste.
