Specialized lids encourage recycling compliance
Findings published in a recent issue of the journal, Environment and Behavior, indicate that using specialized lids that give cues to the types of materials (e.g., waste, paper, aluminum) each receptacle is supposed to hold in public spaces can encourage higher rates of recycling. In addition, the lids may reduce the quantity of waste and associated costs for disposal, reduce the need for staff to sort waste and recyclables, and serve as an inexpensive way to encourage environmental practices.
