Title:SMART BET (Saving Money and Reducing Trash Benefit Evaluation Tool)
Document Date:09/01/2009
Description:This Excel-based tool is designed to help community waste managers decide whether unit-based pricing for solid waste management (also known as Pay-As-You-Throw or PAYT) is the right model for their town or city. SMART BET allows users, i.e., community waste managers, to input readily available information, such as tons of waste landfilled and recycled annually, local population, and landfill tip fees. The user may also provide a more detailed breakdown of the disposal and recycling streams, if this information is available. The tool then combines this information with nationwide average waste disposal data, typical SMART results, and greenhouse gas emission factors originally created for EPA’s Waste Reduction Model (WARM) to provide the greenhouse gas and cost savings that your community is likely to see after implementation of PAYT.
