Ever since human started to live in group or colonies, the waste created by us is always a great trouble affecting our living. The solid waste management act, named Solid Waste and Public Cleansing Management Act 2007 is introduced to improve and enforce the current waste management system in Malaysia. This research is basically investigating the effectiveness of public action towards household solid waste separation according to type such as recyclable (dry waste) and non-recyclable (wet waste). This little act of separation will boost up the effectiveness of solid waste management by agencies that collecting the solid waste from targeted residential housing area and reducing the rate of wastage on the recyclable items being dumped into landfill. The outcome of the research is concerning about promoting the awareness of public authorities by presenting the actual statistical data on how bad the execution of solid waste management is going now right now, by distributing designated survey and questionnaire. This research also provides a platform for government agencies to review and reflect their enforcement on the particular law they announced for the good of the public. This research used questionnaire as the main data source. 1000 surveys are distributed to Taman Tas and Gambang, Kuantan to collect behavioural data about the people`s awareness on the solid waste sorting action. Besides, waste sampling has been done to determine the household waste composition and the degree of waste separation being done by the residents. The Likert-Scale used in the questionnaire will be sorted and arranged, hence presented in table with the Chi-square goodness of fit test, to determine the relationship between behavioural characteristics with the people`s background information (Demographic Analysis). The expected results are focusing on determining the relationships, and the actual effectiveness of the waste management scheme. All the questions are reversed-engineered based on the steps and precautions provided by the waste management authority, including AlamFlora and SWcorp. The analysis part will be discussing about how close the relationship among the factors using statistical proves, and quantifying the evidence found throughout the study. Chi-squared test will be carried out to measure the relationship between background information with the current solid waste management effectiveness.
