Abstract (Translated): 
This paper highlights the challenges and opportunities regarding the Environmental Education (EE) and solid waste themes from a perspective of supporting new demands, principles and guidelines of the National Policy for Solid Residues (PNRS) and the National Plan for Solid Residues, as well as state and local related plans. It takes into account the importance of integration between EE and relevant public policies, like the Plan of Sustainable Production and Consumption (PPCS) and the Environmental Agenda of Public Administration (A3P). A new typology is suggested, involving various possibilities of EE related to solid waste, highlighting the importance and the need of simple, clear and consolidated concepts aimed at waste minimization. It also emphasizes the importance of investments in continuous and effective processes of mobilization, training and awareness of the social actors in order to extend the success of projects and programs that involve solid waste selective collection, as well as other forms of collection related to reverse logistics.
