Garbage tax

Written by Lester Brown

Another garbage-reducing step in this fiscally stressed situation would be to impose a tax o­n all throw-away products, in effect a landfill tax, so that those who use throwaway produducts would directly bear the cost of disposing of them.  This would increase revenues while reducing garbage disposal expenditures, helping to reduce a city's fiscal deficit.
