Introduction: Recycling is one of the main elements of comprehensive waste management. This study aims to investigate the knowledge, attitude, and practice of women towards solid waste recycling in Kashan.
 Methods: In this descriptive study, 368 women were selected from households by random sampling. The data were analyzed using SPSS software version 22 with descriptive statistics and analytical tests at a significance level of 0.05.
Results: The scores of knowledge, attitude, and practice of women were 4.1±83.74, 14.3±75.54, and 4.1±45.29, respectively. The results showed that 37.2% of women in Kashan had good knowledge, 43.1% had good attitude, and 57.2% had good performance towards solid waste recycling. A significant difference was observed between the level of performance among different educational groups in terms of attitude and knowledge, between the level of knowledge of individuals and occupational groups, and between the level of knowledge of people in terms of marital status, and between different groups of owners and tenants in terms of knowledge.
Conclusion: It seems that the performance of women in Kashan was at an acceptable level compared to others participants in other studies.
