Abstract

This study investigated recycling practices in Worcester County High Schools and Colleges. Data on recycling practices were obtained through surveys, visits to colleges and high schools and state and city records. High Schools have a very low level of record keeping in the area of recycling. No correlation was found between affluence and education level and higher recycling rates. Colleges are generally conforming to the available EPA standards, but are below the national average for recycling as well.
