People participation has direct effect in success of any solid waste management (SWM) plan. The main shortcomings in SWM of Kabul City are insufficient collection coverage, uncontrolled waste disposal at collection points and landfills, lack of proper waste treatment, poor management in the municipality, and poor cooperation among the populace. A study was conducted on community perceptions, expectations and their problems related to current solid waste management services in Kabul City. The people information and thoughts were collected through interviews and discussions. As a result, 75% of respondents are not satisfied with the current situation and only 48% dispose of their waste in communal bins. Low collection coverage and lack of communal bins were the people’s major concern. Income level and perceptions were identified as factors affecting willingness to pay. Results showed that only 14% are unwilling to pay and about 60% of the respondents are willing to pay 100 or more Afghanis, while about 50% of those respondents who are not currently paying are ready to pay at least 100 Afs. The study also reveals that higher collection frequencies have shown positive results with greater satisfaction.
