We examined attitudes and behavior surrounding voluntary recycling in a population of low-income Hispanic women. Participants N = 1,512 18–55 years of age completed a self-report survey and responded to questions regarding household recycling behavior, recycling knowledge, recycling beliefs, potential barriers to recycling transportation mode, time, acculturation, demographic characteristics age, income, employment, marital status, education, number of children, birth country, and social desirability. Forty-six percent of participants n = 810 indicated that they or someone else in their household recycled. In a logistic regression model controlling for social desirability, recycling behavior was related to increased age P<0.05, lower acculturation P<0.01, knowing what to recycle P<0.01, knowing that recycling saves landfill space P<0.05, and disagreeing that recycling takes too much time P<0.001. A Sobel test revealed that acculturation mediated the relationship between recycling knowledge and recycling behavior P<0.05. We offer new information on recycling behavior among Hispanic women and highlight the need for educational outreach and intervention strategies to increase recycling behavior within this understudied population.
