household waste, economic tools, waste management, waste management tariffs, waste management costs


Introduction. The need to pursue more active government policy for the stimulation of waste processing is caused
by the necessity to prevent those threats that arise unless an environment friendly and efficient waste management system is in place.
Problem Statement. Ukraine demonstrates a low level of household waste recycling, which poses a hazard to the
environment, quality of life, and health of the population of Ukraine. The measures identified in the National Waste
Management Strategy until 2030 can be implemented by combining the organization of separate collection of household waste with the revision of the existing incentives aiming at increasing the demand for secondary resources.
Purpose. The purpose of this research is to generalize the causes of low amount and rates of processing of
household waste and to develop a system of economic tools for the formation of supply and demand for household waste as main factors of effective strategic waste management.
Material and Methods. Qualitative analysis and generalization of theoretical material, systematization of
economic tools of household waste management, economic and statistical analysis, and regression analysis have been used in this research.

Results. A set of tools for strategic household waste management and changes in approaches to their formation have been proposed. The formation of waste management tariff should be based on the length of the waste management chain, the structure of the collected waste, the potential for its recycling, the revised methods for forming the tariff, organizing waste sorting, and
amending the list of tax payers of environmental tax.
Conclusions. The household waste management in Ukraine demonstrates certain stability of the waste processing structure and the absence of dynamic transformations in response to changes in the modern economy. It needs support, in particular, the revision of the set of economic tools for stimulating waste processing and organizational approaches to their implementation.
