By distributing raffle tickets for the return of recyclable paper it was possible to increase the amount of returned paper in two female dorms on a university campus. In one dorm the paper per raffle ticket ratio was gradually increased in an effort to increase the response maintenance. The increase in this ratio maintained the level of paper returned during the Raffle condition but did not lead to response maintenance following the termination of the Raffle condition. Participation levels were also analyzed and discussed.
