The Actors Integration Program for Solid Waste Management (Proatos) was developed with financial support from 2007 Bank of Brazil Foundation to 2009.

The overall objective was to contribute to the Integrated Management of Municipal Solid Waste (GIRSU) in the Federal District, strengthening the flow of communication between the DF government agents and Centcoop - DF. The environment created by PROATOS provided greater dialogue between the relevant actors to the process of inclusion of pickers, reinforcing an existing work in recent years by different institutions.
