Household attitudes in the community appear to be critical as their points of understanding in waste segregation eventually plays a significant role in providing answers to municipal solid waste management problems in Kuching South City. Despite the abundance of opportunities available for household waste segregation, its full potentials are yet to be exploited in Kuching South City. The objectives of this study were to determine the level of awareness and acceptance, constraints and household requirements for participation among residents of Kuching South City. It also aims to examine the existing practice in Kuching South City and hence make recommendations for effective waste segregation practice. This study gathered data from two main sources namely secondary and primary sources. The secondary data was sourced from various related and relevant articles, books and journals. The two main techniques employed in gathering primary data were household questionnaire sampled among 228 households and face to face interview conducted with delegates from Kuching South City Council and Natural Resource and Environmental Board, Sarawak. Descriptive statistics, correlation test, independent t-test and analysis of variance were used to answer the research questions and hypotheses.
