The Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MADS) for Colombia issued Resolution No. 2246 of 2017, by which article 10 of Resolution No. 1297 of 2010 is modified and other provisions are issued. The 2010 Resolution establishes the systems of selective collection and environmental management of waste batteries and/or accumulators, with the purpose of preventing and controlling the degradation of the environment.
After evaluating the progress that has been made since the implementation of the 2010 Resolution, MADS has concluded that significant progress has been made and, in order to continue to strengthen such systems, communication mechanisms with consumers must be improved to achieve greater efficiency in return and collection of waste.
