Abstract:

In the solid waste management, people’s participation is the key component. The active participation of the people either financially or physically and cooperation is the key to success of urban development and civic services management. Towards the scientific solid waste management, the lack of financial resources was one of the major impediments which corporations suffered. Therefore, it necessitates to know the willingness to pay off households for waste management service. For the study primary data was collected from city dwellers both from Hubballi-Dharwad and Bengaluru. In Hubballi-Dharwad, 71.67 per cent of respondents were willing to pay and in Bengaluru, about 85.00 per cent of the respondents were ready to pay the money. The major determinant of willingness to pay was income (0.144) where it was expected to have positive influence on willingness to pay and another was level of satisfaction (0.133) with the current solid waste management practices. The other variables like quantity of households solid waste generated per day (0.165) and the study hypothesized that the willingness to pay to be positively related with the quantity of solid waste generated, since higher the generation, the more would be the problem faced by households. In respect of the level of satisfaction with the solid waste management services provided by corporations, it is assumed that the respondents who were satisfied were willing to pay.
