RODRIGUES, Waldecy  e  SANTANA, Willian Cardoso. Economic analysis of urban's systems of solid waste management: the case of selective garbage collection in Palmas, TO. urbe, Rev. Bras. Gest. Urbana [online]. 2012, vol.4, n.2, pp.299-312. ISSN 2175-3369.  https://doi.org/10.7213/urbe.7402.

This study aims to analyze the economic viability of a selective garbage collection system (SGC) in the city of Palmas, TO. For this purpose, we consider the relationship between the system operational costs and the marginal benefits generated by the SCG from the contributor's standpoint. Thus, we use the Contingent Valuation Method (CVM) to estimate the benefits of services (use value) through the willingness to pay (WTP) for different collection systems. In addition, the conventional collection costs were presented and the selective collection costs were estimated. Finally, we conclude that the economic well-being variation is not compensated by the implementation of the SGC in Palmas. However, the decision on the deployment of this system must have the economic variables only as a parameter to be adopted, since the numerous benefits that the selective collection back to the present and future generations, exceeds the economic evaluation of individuals about their present well-being.
