                         challenge, mainly in developing countries. The objective of this 
                         paper is to review recent improvements and remaining challenges of 
                         municipal solid waste disposal (MSWD) in Brazil focusing on the 
                         environmental impacts caused by inappropriate disposal of MSW. 
                         Before the implementation of the Brazilian Solid Waste Policy 
                         (BSWP), in 2008, 72.3% of all municipalities in Brazil disposed of 
                         their MSW in open dumps and uncontrolled landfills. In 2015, after 
                         the deadline given by the BSWP to close all open dumps and 
                         uncontrolled landfills had expired, 60% of all Brazilian 
                         municipalities still dispose their MSW improperly. Therefore, 
                         while progress occurred in the management practices for MSWD in 
                         Brazil, the improvements have not occurred as fast as expected by 
                         the BSWP and several shortcomings remain, which cause significant 
                         environmental impacts.",
