Taxing Hazardous Waste: The U.S. Experience

Hilary Sigman ()

Departmental Working Papers from Rutgers University, Department of Economics

Abstract: Many states in the US impose taxes on hazardous waste. This paper conducts an empirical evaluation of the determinants of these taxes and reviews earlier research on their effects on hazardous waste. Earlier studies have shown that the taxes affect waste management, but my results and other evidence suggest that the tax-induced changes may not have improved welfare.
