Abstract

Environmental pollutants generated by waste incineration plants, such as heavy metals and dioxin, make sur-rounding residents very sensitive to the construction of such facilities. This sensitivity and anxiety of residents may induce group events, which further leads to the emergence of social risks. Based on risk perception theory, a total of 320 questionnaires was designed and handed out to residents neighboring to Jiangqiao Waste Inciner-ation Plant in Shanghai, China to detect the factors affecting risk attitude toward such plants. Using ordered logit model, it is found that there are four decisive factors including impact on health, information cognitive, objective characteristics, and the attitude of the neighbors. These factors have different influence on resident risk attitudes, in which the attitude of the neighbors is of most significance, followed by the economic-geography characteristics of residents, the information cognitive has minimal impact.
