dc.description.abstractSustainability practices such as municipal solid waste management have the potential to improve behavior of incarcerated individuals who participate, decrease correctional institution operating costs, and reduce negative environmental impacts. The first objective was to assess behavioral implications of participation in a municipal solid waste management program guided by participatory learning. The second objective was to identify the most efficient arrangement of composting practices to the correctional institution. There was a significant difference between the number of misconduct violations before and after participation of participants who completed the program, a 52.5% reduction in misconduct violations, and a 47.6% reduction in their severity. There was no significant difference between the number of misconduct violations before and after participation of individuals who did not complete the program. However, there was a 23.5% reduction in misconduct violations and a 34.1% reduction in their severity. Data from the composting practices were not obtained or analyzed.en_US
