Attitudinal, habitual and behavioral modeling for waste disposal interventions: A precondition for sustainable waste management system


Author(s): Alice Njeri Nderi and Dr. Manjit Singh

Abstract: Over the last decade, solid waste generation in the world has increased conspicuously. However, the waste management system in most of developing countries is either absent or far from satisfactory. Considerable amount of waste is left uncollected, as well as intentionally disposed of in public and private open spaces. The study highlights role of emotional, psychological, relational, norms as well as individual and group attitude on waste disposal undertakings. The study is anchored on three theories; Ajzen and Fishbein theory of reasoned action (TRA), Ajzen theory of planned behavior and Schwartz norm activation model. This paper uses qualitative meta-analysis research methodology, a comprehensive systematic review of the literature thereby highlighting the main themes and results from the existing literature. The study findings indicate that waste disposal attitude and behavior is deeply rooted in daily relationships and routines, which result into habits, assumed to be predictors of repeated waste disposal practices.
