Dubai government has stated a desire to increase recycling rates, both residential and business. In 2013, municipal statistics recorded as much as 2.6 million tonnes of garbage being sent to the landfill, 900,000 tonnes less than the 3.5 million tonnes sent to landfill in Dubai in 2010. However, 35 per cent of garbage is still being buried in landfills today in Dubai.
The Dubai Integrated Energy Strategy for 2030 aims to reduce energy demand by 30 per cent, as well as zero waste by 2030. Per capita, it’s estimated that Dubai residents each contribute roughly 2.7 kilos to the emirate’s waste stream every day. The “cognitive gap” between the act of recycling and understanding why we are doing it must be closed, and is the aim of the new campaign.
Your task is to gather primary and secondary data in order to (1) evaluate current household recycling rates, practices, impediments, etc., (2) analyse the data, and (3) make a recommendation for what actions the Dubai government could take to increase household recycling. In aIDition, you have been asked to evaluate the statistical relationship between the monthly household income and the frequency of recycling for a household.
