TRANSPORTATION RATES AND THE RECYCLING PROBLEM

This paper examines transportation rates for recycled materials and the development of regulatory policies concerning these rates. Government policy has emphasized transportation rates because of their potential for influencing markets for recyclables. The current thrust may encourage materials conservation without taking into account the financial health and resource consumption of the transportation system. A policy that would minimize movement of recyclable commodities might be preferable.
