Economic efficiency issues with respect to recycling behavior and waste management policy
2005 (English)In: International Journal of Sustainable Development, ISSN 0960-1406, E-ISSN 1741-5268, Vol. 8, no 3, p. 222-238Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Like motherhood and apple pie, recycling is often thought of as an unquestionable 'good'. However, the economic, management and environmental issues involved are complex; there are numerous factors that need to be considered if recycling is to be efficient. The purpose of this paper is to analyse a number of economic efficiency issues with respect to recycling behaviour and waste management policy in a non-technical fashion aimed at an interdisciplinary audience. Among the main findings is that the degree of policy flexibility in affecting recovery and utilisation rates is limited, so additional policy targets are desirable.
