Because of various reasons, developing countries like Ethiopia does not begin to see the economic benefits of solid waste yet, they even dump the solid waste in unauthorized sites The objective of the study assess household solid waste disposal and its management practice in the case of Bishoftutown. An explanatory type of study design was used and data were collected from 192 households, which were selected through simple random sampling method from three „kebeles‟, from responsible staffs and private participants using interviews . Descriptive statistics was used to know the relationship between variables. Though most households have temporary storage in their home, they did not store wastes separately based on its nature. Disposalof solid wastes in unauthorized sites by the households is highly practiced in Bishoftu Town. As shown by the empirical analyses on household heads‟ age, sex, educational level, monthly income, family size, willingness to pay for solid waste collection service, awareness on solid waste management and households‟ location that is distance from the main road, and households‟ access to the private waste collectors‟ service are the major challenges of effective household solid waste management in the study area. In addition , the qualitative analyses, which is done by using the interview and fuscous group discussion shows that other major problems of effective solid waste management practice in the household level are budget problems, limited man power, resources and facilities like adequate containers, vehicles, gown and gloves. Although there are concerned bodies and stakeholders, the issue of proper management of house hold solid waste management should be in mind of every individual.
