These families were divided into three groups including workshops based education training packages based education and no education. People motivation to participate in source separation of the waste was surveyed using a questionnaire. Results showed that the most important barrier factors stated by workshops and package education groups were time-consuming of separation, lack of space in the apartment, irregular waste collection and ineffectiveness of separation.
