Abstract

Curbside collection of recyclable material is considered to be expensive. A better understanding of how households participate in curbside recycling programs may help operators reduce costs. In this report, a survey and direct observation of set-out behavior are used to increase the understanding of a recycling program on the City of the Village, OK. In particular, the report addresses: relationships between set-out amount, set-out frequency, and demographics; and respondent awareness of their own recycling behavior and activity on their street.
