Working Report 18/1999

Waste Tax 1987-1996


The report gives an ex-post evaluation of the Danish waste tax form 1987 to 1996. The evaluation shows that the waste has had a significant impact on the reductions in taxable waste. The tax has been decisive for the reduction in construction and demolition waste, while for the heavier fractions under "håehold waste", it has provided an important incentive for separate collection.
