Recycling is an important and socially significant behavior for which behavior analytic interventions could be greatly beneficial. In the present study, the effectiveness of various visual prompts on increasing correct disposal of trash and recycling items was evaluated with four graduate students. Three visual prompts of varying complexity were compared in an alternating treatments design. The results indicated that visual prompts are an effective way to increase correct disposal of recycling and trash items. However, the results did not show differentiation between the visual prompts for three of the four participants.
