This study aims to determine the methods used by the university students for the disposal of potentially recyclable wastes (paper and cardboard, glass, metal cans, etc.) and assess university students' recycling behavior. For this purpose, a survey was conducted on students at Istanbul University, Turkey. Depending on the survey results, suggestions on how to improve recycling of package wastes, spent batteries, and waste electrical and electronic equipments in the university campus are presented. The effect of gender on recycling behavior of university students and attitudes toward the disposal of potentially recyclable wastes were also discussed.
