Waste Management and Household Effort: Toward an Enhanced ADF Policy

Advance Disposal Fees (ADF) are quite popular in waste management policies, but they discourage any waste reduction effort at the household level. We propose a tiered ADF policy that enhances this system by giving households the possibility to sign a waste reduction contract in return for a lower fee. These contracts satisfy incentive, budget-balancing and participation constraints. For these feasible contracts, we show that the enriched ADF policy is welfare improving and always induces a waste reduction effort.
