Under this initiative, the working group of the Regional Initiative for Inclusive Recycling (IRR), has done a study and a comparative analysis that evaluates the inclusive recycling sector in 12 cities in Latin America and the Caribbean. The evaluation criterion consisted in analyzing and measuring qualitative and quantitative indicators through three main dimensions, including regulations, organization and market dynamics.
