A Study of Rural Women's Solid Waste Management Practices in Suryapet District, Telangana State
Abstract: To prevent the contamination of land, water, and air resources, as well as the spread of dangerous compounds, waste must be viewed as a potential resource rather than as something undesired and unwanted. By appropriately managing domestic solid waste, both environmental quality and human health can be improved. Women are principally responsible for the production and management of traditional habitats, household setting rehabilitation, the creation of new, more appropriate technologies for the construction of clean and healthy domestic environments, and domestic environmental protection and care. As a consequence, four rural villages in the Suryapet region were studied to analyze rural women's solid waste management techniques. Personal interviews with 200 rural women were conducted using pre - planned schedules. According to the findings of the survey, the vast majority of respondents were familiar with solid waste management (SWM) ideas and methods. The findings revealed a substantial link between rural women's comprehension of SWM and their involvement in SWM activities.
