This study revealed the causal interrelationship among influencing factors behind urban residents’ participation in garbage classification by decision making trial and evaluation laboratory (DEMATEL). The findings show that three factors including’ Culture atmosphere’, ‘Garbage classification and disposal technology’ and ‘Garbage classification service design’, are key factors influencing the participation of the residents’ domestic garbage classification, while other factors such as ‘Attributes of garbage’ and ‘External environmental crisis’, have great impact on other main factors respectively.
