Abstract [en]

The concept of a voluntary deposit system is developed and modeled in this paper in comparison to the current state of a voluntary non-deposit (R<inf>1</inf>) and mandatory refund-deposit (R<inf>2</inf>) hybrid system in the U.S. The R<inf>3</inf> model is found to be optimal in comparison through an increase in the recycling rate, a reduction in operating costs, and the creation of a larger surplus to be used to pay for an IT-based tracking system and research grants to enable future innovations in the collection and processing of recyclables. In the R<inf>3</inf> model, consumers are only burdened if they choose to not recycle, or they wish to have the convenience of curbside pick-up.
