Abstract

A household refuse management system is a system to manage refuse treatment, including collection, transportation, and treatment of the unwanted household item. Therefore, this study tries to understand the nature of each household's behavior regarding the refused item they have generated and their behavior towards managing it. Thus, the primary purpose of this study is to examine the factors that affect the success of the refuse management model among the residents of the urban household concerning their daily own household items.Using a questionnaire-based survey with a purposive sampling technique, the data was then submitted to SPSS for further analysis.

Keywords: Urban Refuse; Environment; Urban Household; Behaviour.
