Malaysia has a low participation percentage in waste separation, hence it is urgent to encourage household garbage separation practises. Even though the Separation at Source Initiative (SSI) mandated by the Solid Garbage and Public Cleansing Management became mandatory required residents to separate waste in their homes, households continued to oppose the SSI. It is important to carefully examine the elements that influence and forbid waste separation practises at the source; this requires additional research on several acceptance characteristics, including social behaviour, culture, and policy change. The purpose of this paper to determine the factors of acceptance towards separation waste disposal at household level, to identify the most factors contribute to the acceptance of public toward waste separation and to investigate public environmental concern toward waste problem.
