List of measures

The North Dakota Waste Facility Disposal Fees Initiative, also known as Measure 7, was on the November 3, 1992 ballot in North Dakota as an initiated state statute, where it was defeated.[1][2] The measure would have established an environmental protection and recycling fund from moneys collected from fees for waste disposal or incineration. The fund would have been used for recycling programs and for cleanup of land, air or water pollution.[3]

The measure would have established a 50 cent per ton fee on waste generated within 100 miles of the final disposal site. Another fee would be charged on waste generated more than 100 miles from the final disposal point, equal to the cost of waste disposal at the disposal point closest to where it was generated less the actual cost of disposal at the final disposal facility.[3]
