|Title:||Community attitudes towards landfill sites|
|Abstract:||<p>This research paper allows for an analysis of community attitudes towards a solid waste site. The site under investigation is located in the Region of Halton, between highway 25 and First Line, approximately one-half km south of Britannia Road. The main objective of the study is to identify common themes expressed by the respondents who participated in the in-depth interviews. The second objective is to identify variations between the respondents interviewed. The information for the study was obtained from various sources: in-depth interviews, provided the individual responses to pre-set questions, in order to find out their attitudes regarding the site. Epidemiologic survey data provided information for a variety of indicators, which demonstrated awareness and concern levels. While the community profile provided information on the general characteristics which shape the functioning of the area surrounding the site. The results show that the three aforementioned sources of information provided similar information and responses. The in-depth interviews provided the most "personalized" results, the survey data provided a good representation of the populations's feelings and concerns and the community profile substantiated the findings from the above two sources and placed them in context.</p>|
