Title: Unit-pricing: Minimising Christchurch Domestic Waste
Authors: Tait, Peter R.
Keywords: Demand for domestic waste service
Contingent valuation methodology
PQML count model
Issue Date: 2004-06
Abstract: One economic tool that can aid in the achievement of waste minimisation targets is unit-pricing. Unit-pricing in the waste management sector refers to a pricing system that charges households for their collection and disposal service relative to the amount of waste disposed by the household. This research investigates the potential impact of implementing a unit-pricing policy for domestic waste collection and disposal services in Christchurch. Data is collected using a Contingent Valuation survey. A Poisson Quasi-Maximum Likelihood count model is specified for econometric analysis of demand for Christchurch City Council domestic collection services.
