Waste management has become one of the major issue universally. Inappropriate waste management could be a threat to environment as well as living beings too. Waste is not generated by any one entity but, industries, business and households are equally responsible for it. Proficient waste management starts from the source itself and for this it’s very essential that individuals should have right attitude towards appropriate waste management. Management of household waste is very much related with the homemaker. The positive attitude of the homemaker can help in efficient waste management. The current research study was regarding standardizing the scale to measure the attitude of the homemakers towards the management of household waste. The scale consisted of two parts: (i) Segregation of household waste (ii) Disposal of household waste. Initially the scale consisted of 48 statements with the .80 reliability but after eliminating 6 indistinct statements the reliability of the attitude scale increased to .85. So finally, the standardized scale to measure the attitude of the homemakers towards the management of household waste was constructed with 42 statements and .85 reliability.
