This publication provides an overview of BV Rio's Reverse Logistics Credits (RLCs). RLCs are certificates which confirm that reverse logistics services were provided to ensure the responsible disposal of a certain quantity of waste. The Brazilian National Solid Waste Policy (PNRS) creates the obligation for reverse logistics. These credits are issued and sold by cooperatives of Catadores and purchased by producers and/or importers who need to comply with the solid waste legislation.
