 Mexico: Guanajuato Adopts Waste Law
 On 26 April 2005 the governor of Guanajuato signed the state’s new Law for the Integrated Management of Wastes. Among other things, the new Law requires all producers and distributors of products that generate wastes “susceptible to valorization through reuse or recycling” to prepare waste management plans establishing actions that they will take to minimize the generation of such wastes, manage the wastes “responsibly” and orient consumers on the benefits/opportunities of such valorization. The Law also requires the government to create programs to promote recycling and to favor products with recycled content in government procurement. In addition, large generators of special wastes -- which includes construction and demolition (C&D) wastes, non-hazardous industrial wastes, shopping center wastes, and "technological wastes" (end-of-life electronic, informatic (IT) and automotive products) -- would be required to register and prepare waste plans (that include details on recovery and valorization) for Ecology Institute approval, and report annually to the Institute on management of their waste streams.
