Анотация: This article is focused on the sustainability scenario of solid waste management in Accra, the capital city of Ghana. Source separation and recycling of household waste has a direct effect on solving the open dumpsite conundrum in Ghana. This paper highlights the households’ behavior and their concerns towards separation of waste at source and recycling options. The article assess the willingness of households in low and middle income communities in Accra to separate household waste at source and discuss the efficiency at which the households can separate the waste into the desired categories. The findings show a highly efficient source separation program significantly enhances the recycling potential of recyclables in the waste stream whiles the high organic separation efficiencies could help recover majority of the organic waste in the waste stream for composting purposes
