Environmental Issues: People's Views and Practices (cat. no. 4602.0) was released on 26 November 2003. The publication presents results of a survey on household waste management practices, transport use and motor vehicle ownership and maintenance. In March 2003, 96% of NSW households recycled or re-used wastes. NSW was the state with the highest proportion of people using public transport to travel to work or study (18%). The main reasons cited for this were not owning a motor vehicle (32%) and parking problems (30%).
