This study, ‘A Nationwide Review of Pay-By-Use (PBU) Domestic Waste Collection Charges in Ireland’, investigated the implementation of pay-by-use (PBU) domestic waste charges in Ireland in order to discern their impact on domestic waste-management activities, such as waste presentation, waste recycling and illegal waste diversion. The research was conducted through two phases: the first was a nationwide local authority survey, from May to September 2006; the second was a case study stage, carried out from August to December 2007. The nationwide survey Interim Report (‘A Nationwide Review of Pay-By-Use (PBU) Domestic Waste Collection Charges in Ireland: Extensive Survey Findings’, ERTDI Report 63) and the case study report (‘A Nationwide Review of Pay-By-Use (PBU) Domestic Waste Collection Charges: Case Study Report’, ) are also available for download from this website.
