In May 2010, Costa Rica passed the "Law for the Integrated Management of Residues," which stated that lawmakers would pass specific decrees to improve solid waste management. We worked with GTZ and CYMA to provide recommendations for these decrees. We researched international programs and conducted a focus group and interviews with key stakeholders in order to determine feasible Market-Based Instruments to improve waste management. To this end, we recommend that Costa Rica gradually implement Eco-labeling, Pay-As-You-Throw, and Deposit-Refund.
