Abstract SUMMARY: Cost is the expenditure incurred by the seller whilst price is what the buyer is prepared to pay. This paper assesses how non-hazardous waste landfill costs in the UK have increased over the last 20 years; it looks at current landfill costs; and it assesses how landfill costs may increase over the next 20 years. Costs are compared with the RPI (retail price index). It is shown that non-hazardous waste landfill costs in the UK have increased four fold against RPI over the last 20 years, and it is predicted that they will increase at the same rate over the next 20 years. The paper concludes by assessing how landfill contracts are moving away from price for disposal towards the waste hierarchy, and comments on the viability of landfill. 1.
