Abstract

This City of Canterbury study adopts a unique exploratory approach to determine the waste disposal perceptions of CoC household residents and of CoC visitors. It then deploys these exploratory findings into an online survey and captures knowledge concerning household waste disposal activities. The study finds there is a need for ongoing additional CoC recycling media distribution, and that behavioral approaches can be included in any CoC pro-recycling household marketing campaigns. These should highlight that plastic bags, aerosol cans, polystyrene, clothing and nappies are not recyclable. Further regular local media campaigns, promotions, online community engagement approaches, and clear symbolic CoC bin labelling should be deployed.
