The issue of solid waste generated in urban areas is nowadays one of the main topics for discussion in all media, especially in the setting of municipal administrations. Most municipalities do not have a management model and management of solid waste and therefore the management is carried out without any planning through routine operations. Thus this research aims to understand the management of solid waste in Cumari (GO), the production, packaging, collection, transportation, treatment and final disposal in the period 2011 to 2012. The proposal is to observe reality, provide the local government authorities for the preparation of a Management Plan for Solid Waste. The research was developed from a theoretical base guided by authors like: Lima (2004), D'Almeida et al. (2000), Berrios (2003), Monteiro et al. (2001) Philippi Jr. et al. (2005) and Rodrigues (1998). To accompany this work was chosen using the method of questionnaires and semi-structured interviews and also through direct observation and site visits The actions to be undertaken by public action should consider improving the working conditions of employees of the public cleaning, collection and recycling, the creation of an association of collectors, the intermunicipal consortium for final disposal or implementation of the landfill, seeking to involve the whole society through environmental education programs and solid waste management.
