The theory of collective action and the Institutional Analysis and Development (IAD) framework are two concepts popular in social sciences that have been originally used in resource management. This manuscript discusses what recycling/recovery programs can learn from the theory of collective action and the IAD framework, through a qualitative comparative study of such initiatives from three different cities, Curitiba in Brazil, Padang in Indonesia, and Akure in Nigeria. The cases show the potential benefits of both concepts, not only in formulating and implementing recycling/recovery programs but also in making corrective measures for continuous improvements. All cases also show the importance of increasing awareness-raising to change public perception of waste from being a nuisance to a valuable resource. View this paper
