This survey measures awareness, participation, support & recommendations for the current beverage container recycling program in Calif. It found that 2/3 of Calif. residents have curbside recycling, which is more prevalent in urban & suburban areas & is more available to residents with higher incomes who own their own single family homes. Those with curbside recycling are more likely to have recycled than are those who don't.

Use of un-treated/partially treated wastewater for irrigation in the dry countries of Asia and Africa and recycling of treated wastewater in the water scarce developed countries has become a common practice due to various reasons. While the lack of wastewater treatment to appropriate levels before use is a major problem in developing countries, the high cost of wastewater recycling is the major problem in developed countries. The current paper is part of a doctoral research and presents the conceptual framework for the research and the methodology that can be used to tackle the problems associ
