—This study focuses on attributes to foster waste
segregation behaviour in organization. Recycle can reduce the
amount of waste in sustainable way. Segregate the waste before
recycling is important to avoid contamination of waste which
could diminish the value of recycling. Segregate the waste before
recycling can increase recycle rate as well. A preliminary study
conducted in organizational setting indicates that waste
segregation behaviour among the community in organisation
was found not encouraging. Critical literature search over
previous studies conducted in related discipline shows total of
four attributes affecting the waste segregation behaviour among
the community: accessibility to the recycling bins, waste
segregation information, waste segregation incentive, and
reminder to the users to segregate waste. The attributes
identified from the literature review will provide a guidance in
fostering the waste segregation behaviour in the community.
—Recycle, waste segregation behavior.
