- Sustainable Financing systems, such as the Cook Islands Advanced Recovery and Disposal Fee, are legislative instruments designed to create a way to sustainably fund waste management and recycling. These systems are used successfully around the world to encourage the recovery of end-of-life products and to ensure governments have access to enough funds to divert recoverable items from landfills and into reuse or recycling. Five schemes are currently in operation in the Pacific, with many other countries actively designing systems for implementation.
