Rezumat/Abstract. Solid Waste Disposal is a serious concern in the present era of rapid population growth. The increased level of waste creates hazardous problems for humans, as well as animals. As per Haryana State Pollution Control Board report (2021), projected Waste Generation by Faridabad city in would be 962 TPD in 2025 which would rise to 1290 TPD by 2035 which makes Faridabad the highest waste producing city in the state. Previous studies on the solid waste disposal systems in Indian towns have focused on the social elements of trash disposal, such as domestic solid trash disposal in India, constituents of sustainability in solid trash disposal, living and working situation of dumpsite trash collectors etc. But, not much research has been conducted on analyzing the impact of human behavior elements on the waste disposal system, which might lead to a better knowledge of the elements that drive behavior change, which could be a key idea for improving the system's performance. In this study, a survey on Faridabad city's solid waste disposal system was undertaken with a select group of people in Faridabad city and for analysis, the authors used multivariate regression to anticipate the research model. The study's scope is confined to Faridabad residents and the solid waste Disposal problem, however, the proposed framework has substantial potential for implementation in other Indian cities as well as developing countries.
