Paying Up Front for Disposal of Special Wastes

Record #:
Funding waste disposal programs for certain large items, such as tires and appliances, is a challenge for local governments. To deal with this problem, North Carolina introduced an innovative program, the \"advance disposal tax,\" or taxes consumers pay on certain items when they are purchased. North Carolina was one of the first states to institute this tax. Hughes discusses why the state chose this approach and the features of the program.
