Abstract

There has been a growing knowledge about the corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the modern communities. The CSR includes the feeling or ethics of the good relationship between organizational activities and civil society. There are two kinds of stakeholders in CSR such as internal and external. Three major administration structures can be seen in Sri Lanka; the Central government, Provincial councils and Municipal council (MC). Structure of the MC is the third and lowest level of administration in Sri Lanka. There are 23 MCs in Sri Lanka in 2011. Municipal solid waste is creating a lot of issues in urban areas. The objectives of the study on CSR in MCs of Sri Lanka; to identify stakeholder satisfaction, to recognise priority factors of CSR and to recognise similar groups of the CSR. Sample size is 200. Percentage analysis, multiple regression analysis and factor analysis were used as statistical tools. Aspect of external stakeholders, CSR has failed in MCs in Sri Lanka. Therefore the study recommended that, CSR program can be prepared as a system and mechanism between external stakeholders (employees) and internal stakeholders for getting the maximum benefit for both parties. Due to the cleaning of environment is an important factor for each person for the purpose of reducing or eliminating diseases from society.
