Abstract:This study is about solid waste management in Kabwe Town, Central Province of Zambia. The study focuses on the actual current situation on the participation of the town’s households in solid waste management. The reason of studying the current situation is that within the town there is less participation of households in solid waste management which results in indiscriminate dumping. The study uses the concepts of circular economy to investigate how household participation in SWM can contribute to sustainability. Under circular economy, the concept of the 3R’s (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) is discussed. The existing situation concerning the awareness level of the households, challenges, and the outcomes of participation in solid waste management is explored and elaborated. The study aims at analysing the existing situation and integrate it with circular economy concepts to give recommendations on how the existing situation can be improved.
