In recent years, the term sustainable development has been the main focus of several global plans, international agreements, national policies and debates throughout the world. In Brazil it isn’t different. In the last decades, Brazilian government has been committed to promote the sustainable development in all of its territory by elaborating several management policies, among them, the Política Nacional de Resíduos Sólidos – PNRS [National Solid Waste Policy]. However, during the control process of these policies, meaning the execution of the established actions, a gap between management levels is noticed. As an example, when it comes to solid waste, according to data from Associação Brasileira de Empresas de Limpeza Pública e Resíduos Especiais - Abrelpe [Brazilian Association of Public Cleaning and Special Waste Companies] from all of Brazilian waste, 30% can be recycled, but only 3% actually are. Thus, the main goal of this work is knowing the major causes of the gap between policy management levels, based on the PNRS. In order to do that, a situation diagnostic on recyclable waste management at Universidade Federal de Goiás – UFG/Regional Goiânia [Federal University of Goiás – UFG/Regional Goiânia] was performed to identify the challenges faced by managers when applicating the selective waste collection in the University. The methods used were bibliographic and documentary analysis, field research and interviewing UFG-SUSTENTÁVEL program managers. The main results show that UFG’s selective waste collection is in its early implementation steps, with punctual actions and so far, the university doesn’t have its own program. Also, that the major challenges faced by the university are: environmental awareness from all university community and high administration’s commitment with the solid waste problem. With this work, it’s expected to contribute with UFG in the creation of its own selective waste collection program and invest on environmental education, aiming to raise awareness throughout the university of its environmental, ethical and social commitment, bringing the sustainability matter to the university’s daily life through courses and programs for the administrative technicians, professors and students, and also, continually conduct awareness campaigns and events emphasizing environment education actions.
