    While working with Dr. Arrieta from the School of Chemistry, at the University of Costa Rica in San Jose, we researched previous recycling programs in Costa Rica, surveyed residents of the area, conducted interviews with community officials in Montes de Oca, and began a pilot recycling program in this community. This project established possible reasons for previous programs' successes and failures, provided a socioeconomic breakdown of community opinion towards solid waste disposal and recycling, and provided suggestions for best practices in recycling.
