Abstract:
Due to the increasing population and lifestyle changes, the generation rate of household solid waste has increased significantly, resulting serious problems on public health and the environment. There is a need for every single person to act responsibly to protect environment and safeguard human health by following proper waste management practices. This paper aims to study the impact of knowledge, attitude and practices of household solid waste management with socio-economic variables. The data was collected from a sample of 60 selected households using questionnaire survey. Both qualitative and quantitative methods were used to analyse the data including generation of percentages and descriptive statistics. The results show that socio-economic factors and other variables have strong influence on the waste management practices of households.
