Using the Contingent valuation method, logit and tobit models this article examined the willingness of rural households to pay for safe water and improved solid waste management in North-central Nigeria. Data used was collected from 352 households in North-central, Nigeria using questionnaire forms. Results revealed that 27.6 percent of households were willing-to-pay an average of N176/week for improved solid waste management while 30 percent were willing-to-pay an average of N21.60/20 liters of potable water. Also, gender, years of schooling, membership of cooperative societies, dependency ratio, health status and the monthly income are the factors that significantly influence their willingness-to-pay. It recommended that rural dwellers should be enlightened on the importance of proper waste management which will result in improved environmental health.
