This chapter examines the legislative branch of government, looking at the disposal fees that states charge for disposing both hazardous waste and municipal waste. First, it examines the interstate patterns of those fees based on the statewide demographics as well as the demographics around the waste sites. Then, it discusses the reasons behind solid and hazardous waste facility siting problems and the increasing prevalence of waste taxes. Lastly, it presents the results of two econometric models—one for hazardous waste taxes and a second for municipal solid waste taxes.

Keywords:   legislative branch, hazardous waste, municipal waste, statewide demographics
