On the relationship between the provision of waste management service and illegal dumping


  • Ichinose, Daisuke
  • Yamamoto, Masashi


The illegal dumping of waste has been a serious environmental concern of most countries in the world. This paper examines the relationship between the provision of waste treatment facilities and the frequency of illegal dumping. Our results show that a shortage of intermediate waste treatment facilities has played an important role in increasing the frequency of illegal dumping.
