Abstract


This study examined the behavioral intention to implement sustainable waste management on primary school students by using the framework of the Theory of Planned Behavior. The purpose of this study was to determine the factors associated with the behavioral intention to implement sustainable waste management. Population and sample in this study were primary school students in city of Padang, West Sumatera, Indonesia. The data collected for this study were analyzed using structural equation modeling. The results of this study stated that the knowledge of the sustainable waste management has a significant relationship with the attitudes towards the sustainable waste management behavior. Attitudes towards the sustainable waste management behavior, subjective norms, and perceived behavioral control also had a significant relationship with the behavioral intention to implement sustainable waste management. This study has helped in understanding the relative strength of the determinants of the behavioral intention to implement sustainable waste management. The biggest strength is the relationship between the perceived behavioral control and the behavioral intention, followed by the relationship between subjective norm and the behavioral intention, and the weakest were the relationship between attitude and the behavioral intention. These findings have important implications for the school as well as for policy makers.
