Energy and waste efficiency


We're also starting to think of solid and organic waste not as a chronic problem, but as an opportunity to generate value. Examples include collecting compost and delivering it to local farmers, and expanding recycling programs. Other initiatives include expanding sewage collection to 80 percent of the populated metropolitan area, and promoting solar power, beginning with the installation of solar panels on the roof of Rio's City Hall.
