Abstract or Summary
  • Seven socioeconomic factors common to two Oregon communities, Beaverton and Corvallis, were examined and compared for the influences they might have on participation in recycling programs. Sampling technique involved the use of a prepared survey questionnaire through which the data necessary for the appropriate statistical methodology used in the study were collected. Findings revealed significant differences between the two communities with regard to probabilities in occupation, income per year, age and level of education. No significant differences were detected in probabilities for sex and marital status. The personal philosophies for recycling in both communities centered upon three primary reasons: environmental concern, stop unnecessary waste and conservation of natural resources. Location analysis proved a correlation between distance of home location to recycling center, and recycling participation. KEY WORDS: Socioeconomic factors, Recycling participation, Sampling technique, Survey questionnaire, Statistical methodology.
