LIMAS HERNANDEZ, Myrna  y  BLANCO ROMERO, Janette Eréndira. Waste disposal-consumption practices of solid household waste in Juarez City in 2014. Iztapalapa. Rev. cienc. soc. humanid. [online]. 2017, vol.38, n.83, pp.97-132. ISSN 2007-9176.

The main objective of this paper is to detect and realize the waste-disposal and consumption practices (generation, separation, recycling) developed by residents of Juarez City in their homes in 2014 to propose some strategies that encourage the separation of waste differently foreseeing the tons of waste collected. The methodology covered the design of a sample to apply questionnaires considering information cards with 50 items approximately. Data collection took place in 2014 in 6 elementary and junior high schools located in the east and west of the town. The participants were parents and the total number of validated questionnaires was 530 representing a confidence level of 97 %. The results confirmed that the availability of people to separate residues in households depends at least of gender, level of schooling or the area of residence. Therefore, the recommendations for establishing a waste separation program should be focused and, according to the participants, must be adapted to the collection service by type of waste, offering incentives or sanctions, among other alternatives.
