Summary
The present study was conducted to investigate awareness of the household about recycling symbol and their attitudes towards the recycle of packaging wastes in Turkey. The research data were gathered through questionnaires filled by 272 household in Ankara Province in February-March of the year 2013. Logit model was employed and model estimations were performed. According to the research findings most of solid wastes are collected from waste repositories and streets in primitive and unhealthy manners and only the half of packaging wastes are able to be recycled. Since these wastes are most of the time mixed with organic wastes, they are not able to be fully recycled. According to logit model results; age, level of education and household income were found to be significant factors affecting awareness and attitudes of the households about recycling symbol. As the households get older, awareness of recycling symbol rate decreased. Level of education had positive impacts on awareness of recycling symbol. Increasing educational levels also increased the ratio of awareness households. Household income had negative effects on awareness of recycling symbol since increasing incomes resulted in decreased ratio of aware households.

According to the research findings most of solid wastes are collected from waste repositories and streets in primitive and unhealthy manners and only the half of packaging wastes are able to be recycled. Since these wastes are most of the time mixed with organic wastes, they are not able to be fully recycled. According to logit model results; age, level of education and household income were found to be significant factors affecting awareness and attitudes of the households about recycling symbol. As the households get older, awareness of recycling symbol rate decreased. Level of education had positive impacts on awareness of recycling symbol. Increasing educational levels also increased the ratio of awareness households.
