The research aims to describe the profile of recyclable material collectors and the possible impacts generated in the municipal landfill of Guajará-Mirim and the perception of environmental risks. From a methodological point of view, questionnaires were applied to stakeholders (pickers, small traders and the recyclable materials manager), which allowed a broader view of the recycling process and the organizational and technological level employed in this economic segment.For this, the UCINET Software and NetDraw tool was used, where it was possible to analyze the data and social networks around the recyclable materials sector in the “green city” of Guajará-Mirim, Rondônia, Brazil. Thus, allowing to consider that this activity is very fragile from a technical, technological and organizational point of view, which makes it a great threat to the sector. Furthermore, factors such as public policies, environmental awareness and cooperation seem to further undermine this important activity in the municipality, which increases the local paradox in relation to the national solid waste policy.
