|Title||Analysis of Inter-Household Willingness to Pay for Solid Waste Management in Mwanza City, Tanzania|
This study used the (Close-ended) contingent valuation approach to examine the relationship between selected
socio-economic characteristics of households and their willingness to pay for improved solid waste management.
Binary responses were used to obtain survey data from 300 households randomly selected from Mwanza City,
Tanzania and the logit regression technique was used to estimate the determinants of selected dependent
variables on willingness to pay. Evidence from the logit model indicated that seven variables had significant
influence on the households’ willingness-to-pay. With exceptional of age, environmental knowledge and
secondary education dummy, post vocational, primary education and income of respondents variables were
positive and statistically significant at P < 0.05 but household type and legal regulatory on environment were
negative and significant at P > 0.05. The results from the study have further suggested that individual household
