Waste need to be considered as potential resource rather than undesirable and unwanted, to avoid contamination of air, water, and land resources and to avoid transmission of hazardous materials. A properly managed household solid waste can increase the health of the people as well as environmental quality. Women are the primary producers/handlers of traditional environment, rehabilitators of the domestic environment, innovators in the use of new more appropriate technology in the creation of clean and healthy domestic environments and Women are protectors and caretakers of domestic environment. Thus this study was conducted in four rural villages of Medak district to assess the solid Waste management practices followed by rural women. Data was collected through personal interviews with the help of the structured schedules covering 200 rural women. The results of the study revealed that, majority of the respondents were aware of SWM (solid waste management) knowledge and practices. The results revealed that significant relationship existed between the SWM knowledge and SWM practices performed by the rural women.
