AbstractThe present study analyses the hazardous waste management by citizens via Fixed Recycling (FRC) and Mobile Centres (MRC) with the aim of suggesting improvements of both services. In addition, the effectiveness of a campaign for environmental education developed by the Madrid council was assessed. A questionnaire was carried out on a sample of 5644 inhabitants of four different districts of Madrid City. Data were treated quantitatively using SPSS 17.0 and categorized using content analysis. It was found that the campaign effectively promoted the existence and use of Recycling Centres and was able to identify possible amendments to improve future campaigns.
