Abstract

Since the origin of human beings, there exists a parallel waste generation. Human wants are unlimited; the generation of waste also differs. With the increase in industrial growth and urbanisation, waste generation was also going at an alarming rate. The improper disposal of waste will lead to a rise in the pollution level. It can be managed from the household level. So the study was based on the willingness to pay by the household for the household solid waste management and the reasons behind the non-willingness to pay.
