|Abstract:||© 2017, University of Mohammed Premier. The objective of this research was to develop the appropriate option of solid waste management for a central market of agriculture products in Thailand based on the stakeholder perspectives. The cross-sectional descriptive study was employed to investigate the current situation of solid waste management in the market, to examine factors influencing solid waste management behavior among the merchants, and in-depth interviews of key persons of the market with an attempt to develop and propose the appropriate solid waste management option. The results revealed that sex (AOR: 1.75; 95%CI: 1.09-2.82), education (AOR: 1.75; 95%CI: 1.01-3.03), knowledge of solid waste management (AOR: 1.76; 95%CI: 1.02-3.03), attitude toward solid waste management (AOR: 2.88; 95%CI: 1.03-8.03) and accessibility to solid waste management (AOR: 1.97; 95%CI:0. 004-1.240) were found to be the significant predictors of solid waste management behavior. Concerning the in-depth interviews on current solid waste management among key persons, it was found that a knowledge and information project is needed to educate the merchants and customers, and that the interesting announcements might help people to understand more and have better behavior. Therefore, the preferred options of solid waste management were verified by the focus group technique with the stakeholders. The results showed that the solid waste management education and information campaign with solid waste management equipment provided option was selected for the Central Agricultural Products Market, Thailand to be launched in this market.|
