This report summarizes a study of Federal subsidies to stimulate resource recovery. It examines subsidies conceptually and in light of past Federal experience; it discusses the characteristics of various subsidies and the manner in which they affect the economics of secondary materials recovery and use; and, it presents estimates of costs and effectiveness of specific subsidies for stimulating recycling of specific materials in municipal solid waste. The report describes separately subsidies to stimulate secondary material use and those to stimulate construction of resource recovery plants to remove secondary materials from mixed municipal solid waste. The methodology used in making predictions of subsidy effectiveness is presented as well as a description of the industry economic models to which they were applied.
