Abstract: The objective of this work is to evaluate the final solid waste disposal problem and the importance of the Integrated Solid Waste Management Consortium of the Jaguaribe Valley region in the State of Ceará. For this, a review of the literature on the subject and field work in the study area was carried out. The results show that all municipalities in the Jaguaribe Valley region dispose of their solid waste in dumps, which brings serious socioenvironmental problems. One solution to this problem is the CGIRS-VJ implementation.
