The volume of rural domestic solid waste has increased substantially,paralleled with the rapid development of rural economy and the growth of farmers' income.The increase of rural domestic solid waste has seriously influenced the rural environment and farmers' health,as well as the sustainable development of agriculture.Based on field surveys of 240 farm households in 60 villages in Gansu and Hebei Provinces,this paper aims to document the evidence of rural domestic solid waste treatment and to explore its determinants in applying the effective treatment of rural domestic solid waste.Descriptive statistics show that most villages have no treatment facilities for domestic solid waste.In general,the available facility in Gansu province is better than that in Hebei province.More than half of the villages have no management arrangement for domestic solid waste,while some villages are planning to improve the management.Consistent with the descriptive statistics,the econometric analysis shows that there is significant positive relationship between the increase of farmers' income and domestic solid waste treatment,and that access to transportation also has positive impact on treating domestic solid waste.However,our results indicate that the improvement of solid waste treatment does not benefit from the increased opportunities of employment off the farm.
