I recall from previous research that I have done that the experience of
communities using some kind of lottery-type incentive to boost recycling
participation is that they do exert a temporary  positive stimulus as long
as they are in effect, but there is a very rapid drop-off to the
participation rates that existed prior to the lottery-type incentive once
this particular kind of promotional effort ends.  (It's an effect similar to
what happens to auto sales when the manufacturers run rebate programs and then stop them.)   I would certainly be interested in learning if recent
research on this technique has resulted in different findings.
