Everything Recycling

"Most Tucsonans recycle, but do we recycle well? I chose this project because I wanted to find out how much my friends and family knew about what materials are recyclable in their curbside bins. It turns out that many of us don’t know for sure and we do “wishful recycling,” where we put in items hoping they can be recycled. My project concludes with some ideas to help Tucsonans better understand recycling guidelines and help keep our city recycling effectively. Keywords: Recycling, Environment, Trash, Survey"

  1. Your pie graphs made it easy to see results. Nice job. Really liked your recommendations that we need to educate people about recycling.

    Thank you for participating this year in SARSEF! I hope wishful recycling turns into true recycling.
