The relationship between culture and waste recycling has been determined, to provide an estimate of the possible impact of cultural participation on household behavior in the sustainability meta-issue. Percentage of wastewater management methods in Jambi Province is known that waste management is still dominated by burning 60.5%, transported by officers as much as 18.4%, discharged into rivers or sea as much as 11.2%, buried in soil 6%, 3.7% removed and only 0.3% compost. We use data on household behavior to highlight the determinants of recycling of waste with culture. This analysis highlights a strong positive relationship between the tendency to take part in several cultural activities and the tendency to adhere to guidelines and recipes for waste recycling. Our empirical results suggest that policies aimed at influencing sustainable development by encouraging pro-environment behavior may be more effective when considering dimensions of cultural participation as complementary factors.
