ABSTRACT

This study aims to analyze the effect of report reward system for overcoming the risk of illegal waste disposal. To investigate the impact of report reward system on the sales volume of waste bags, eight years of panel data on 63 local governments was analyzed by the generalized method of moments(system GMM). The data was collected from Korean Freedom of Information System and Korean Statistical Information Service. The results indicate that the operation of report reward system and the number of reports per capita serve as incentives for residents to consume waste bags instead of disposing illegally, whereas the level of influence is modest. This study suggests that although the report reward system contributes to deter the illegal disposal to some extent, some improvements are required to enhance the efficacy of report reward system.
