Applying Environmental Policy Instruments to Used Oil
Conn, W. (2009). Applying environmental policy instruments to used oil. Journal of Environmental Planning and Management, 52(4), 457-475.
A comprehensive assessment was conducted of California's Used Oil Program, which was established in 1992 to reduce the illegal disposal, and promote the reuse, of used lubricating oil. This paper summarises selected key findings of the assessment and discusses them in the context of designing and implementing policy instruments for promoting environmentally responsible waste management. The approach known as 'community-based social marketing' is identified as a promising option.
