No. In Fact, It Will Probably Decrease. “Pay-As-You-Throw and illegal Dumping”, Econservation Institute Available at: http://www.paytnow.org/PAYT_FactSheet_IllegalDumping.pdf How Much Will Illegal Dumping Increase… BEFORE PAYT AFTER PAYT No problem at all0% Very slight21%43% Medium problem7% Large issue21%14% Huge problem7%0% Don’t know43%28% “Large issues” decreased. “Huge problems” disappeared. Illegal dumping is not only a non-issue in most PAYT communities, but in many, the number of illegal dumping incidents actually improved.

No. According to Researchers and Academics… “There is no evidence that PAYT is cause of additional illegal dumping.” - The Cornell Waste Management Institute. Pay As You Throw for Large Municipalities. December 11, 2000, p 9. “There is no evidence that PAYT is cause of additional illegal dumping.” - The Cornell Waste Management Institute. Pay As You Throw for Large Municipalities. December 11, 2000, p 9. Increases in illegal dumping are rare and are generally very easy to manage. In the highly unlikely event that dumping increases, $1.1 million in annual savings will more than pay for the cleanup. “Over 75% to 85% of (illegal dumping) was non-residential in origin… The largest components were construction, demolition, and land-clearing… The only important component of household origin… bulky items such as mattresses, sofas, and appliances.” - The Reason Foundation. Variable-Rate or ‘Pay-as-you-throw’ Waste Management. 2002, p 16. “Over 75% to 85% of (illegal dumping) was non-residential in origin… The largest components were construction, demolition, and land-clearing… The only important component of household origin… bulky items such as mattresses, sofas, and appliances.” - The Reason Foundation.

Copyright © 2014 WasteZero 3 Won’t Illegal Dumping Increase? No. According to Cities and Towns… “Many solid waste managers have expressed a fear that residents may resort to illegal dumping in commercial waste bins or public trash cans if charged a fee for waste disposal. Studies of communities… around the nation with PAYT programs indicate that increased illegal dumping is NOT a problem in most communities.” Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, “Pay-As-You-Throw Basics for Municipalities” “It was an instant success and all the things people said could happen and would happen – illegal dumping, throwing of trash across the city – never happened. We went from recycling 2% of our waste to 38% in one week.” Bob Moylan, 20-year Commissioner of Public Works, Worcester, MA Virtually all of the communities that report an increase of illegal dumping after implementing PAYT also report that illegal dumping returns to pre-PAYT levels within one to three months. Econservation Institute “Fact Sheet: Pay-As-You-Throw and Illegal Dumping” Universities nationwide, including Harvard and others, have studied the illegal dumping question. All have concluded: The experience does not support the concern. 1 1 Bender, Briggs, DeWitt. “Toward statewide unit pricing in Massachusetts: Influencing the Policy Cycle.” DSIA Discussion Paper 94-01; Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, January 1994. “In fact, illegal dumping is actually less of a problem now due to the provision of new services, including a free bulky waste collection and an annual hazardous household products collection day.” Bob Fiore, DPW, Worcester, MA Illegal dumping is a non-issue in the vast majority of PAYT communities. In fact, 75%-85% of illegal dumping is commercial material—not residential.
