PUBLIC AWARENESS AND KNOWLEDGE CONCERNING DOMESTIC SOLID WASTE RECYCLING IN BAHRAIN

Auther : Dr. Ismail M. Madany and Dr. Khalid Bugahoos

 

         Public knowledge and awareness in the State of Bahrain regarding various aspects of domestic solid waste were assessed.  Data were obtained by survey of 500 respondents.

         Results indicated that a relatively large number of respondents were still unaware of the health impacts of domestic solid waste and the potential health and environmental effects caused by improper disposal of the waste.  Also the results showed that approximately 6.6% of the respondents do not follow the proper method for waste collection inside their houses, and only 26% of the respondents knew the fate of the waste after collection from their houses.  Regarding the awareness about domestic waste recycling, 63.2% of the respondents states that it is practically possible to separate different components of the waste and 76.1% showed their willingness to cooperate with the government in this aspect.  Knowledge and awareness of the respondents in general were found mainly to be dependent on the level of education.
