Abstract

Our project, sponsored by the University of Worcester, looked into how recycling habits affect students’ accommodation choice. We performed door-to-door surveying, receiving 74 survey responses. Furthermore, we spoke with members of facilities about recycling on-campus. We found no solid relationship among students’ recycling habits and their accommodation choice, but found that the main reason they do not recycle is lack of bins. We recommend looking into optimal placement for disposal sites to help increase recycling among students on campus.
