    Abstract

    Domestic waste policy in Australia has a strong focus on kerbside recycling. In this paper mixed logit choice modelling is used to estimate the willingness to pay of households in Brisbane, Australia, for kerbside waste collection services including recycling. Respondents were found to have a positive willingness to pay for the fortnightly kerbside recycling and would be willing to pay an additional amount to increase the frequency of this service to weekly. The utility of respondents was, however, found to decline if general waste collection increased from weekly to twice a week.
