GLRPPR Sector Resource: ERCC Consumer Awareness Survey: A Look at How Electronics Recycling Programs Have Impacted E-Cycling Activities And Awareness

Title:
ERCC Consumer Awareness Survey: A Look at How Electronics Recycling Programs Have Impacted E-Cycling Activities And Awareness

Abstract:
The Electronics Recycling Coordination Clearinghouse (ERCC) conducted surveys of consumers in states where the state agency expressed an interest and was able to fund a survey. In addition, ERCC received contributions and surveyed an additional number of states (both with laws and without). The goal was to increase the number of state-level results and to gauge any difference in awareness and attitudes between states with and without laws, and also to get a general understanding overall awareness and other factors in increasing electronics recycling. Survey results indicate that there does not appear to be a significant difference in awareness of recycling options when comparing states that have laws versus those that don't. 40.7% of those surveyed across LAW STATES and NON-LAW STATES are CERTAIN they know where to recycle their electronics. Adding in those who "THINK THEY KNOW" where to take their used electronics, the national result is just over 70% awareness. The state with the highest combined response of "Yes, I know where" to recycle and "I think I know where" to recycle was Oregon at 79.7%. The lowest was Wyoming at 62.4%.
