Abstract

As a contribution to literature drawing together green criminology and studies of organised and corporate crime, this paper provides a case study of crimes and public health harms linked to the Naples garbage disposal crisis. The context is the inability of modern consumer society to cope with the problem of mass production of waste. In turn this leads to opportunities for both legal and criminal entrepreneurs to offer services that promise but fail to 'dispose' of the problem. The analysis draws upon environmental law and classic studies of organised crime. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
