This paper aims to discuss and highlight the basic concepts in waste management studies. Effective MSW management consists of a mix of policy instruments to achieve the policy objectives. Understanding the factors that have effects on public pro-environmental attitudes and behavior is important for helping decision makers to strengthen the existing policy frameworks for the future. Ensuring successful implementation of recycling and waste separation at source requires high participation from the household. Thus, this paper will discuss the relevant concepts in waste management studies that are relevant to assess the waste separation behavior from the socio-psychological model perspective. Understanding the factors that influence public waste separation behavior is useful to strengthen the existing policy framework.
