A methodology for analyzing economic and social effects of alternatives in hazardous waste management is presented and demonstrated. The approach includes the use of environmental threat scenarios and evaluation of effects on and responses by parties-at-interest. The methodology is demonstrated by a case study of alternative approaches to hazardous waste management for Oregon. The report organizes, summarizes, and provides extensive information on hazardous waste management techniques. Research on risk preferences and its relationship to decision-making is reviewed, and appendices on methods for valuing various effects (such as environmental impacts), public attitudes toward environmental issues, and intergenerational discounting are included. The report constitutes a useful manual for hazardous waste management personnel and policymakers involved in environmental quality management.
