Urban solid waste disposal
Over the years, the main concern of the city government has been encouraging a separate collection process with public participation to consolidate the environmental impact, together with the use of waste that avoids or decreases gradually the final disposal in landfill cells, usingtechnologies for organic waste recovery and recyclable or reusable products. The Ministry of Works and Services through the General Department of Urban Services, has been the Administrative Unit responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Bordo Poniente Landfill Stage IV; however, this space served its useful life in December 19, 2011, therefore, from this date, urban solid waste generated in Mexico City is sent for final disposal to authorized sites in the State of Mexico.

Vehicle Verification Program
The purpose of the program is to maintain the vehicle fleet of Mexico City and the metropolitan zone in optimum conditions, through semiannual inspection of contaminant emissions, to achieve an adequate energy and environmental performance. Vehicle verification has been strengthened applying more stringent emission limits for gasoline units in circulation since year 2007, and from July 2008, with a new procedure and new emission limits for diesel-powered units. In addition to the semi-annual update of the Vehicle Verification Program, work has been carried out on the development of new vehicle verification equipment, where the software and hardware will allow to maintain better control, both in the vehicle verification process as well as with the actors involved in it, such as equipment vendors, owners of verification centers, and verification technicians.
