abstract
With rapid increase in population and economic growth, the Republic of the Philippines is facing a major challenge for effective management of its growing municipal waste. The government has enacted the Republic Act 9003, which is also called the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000, to overcome the challenges of waste management. This study was conducted in barangay Pansol of Quezon City in the Metro Manila to assess the impact of this act on households’ waste generation and management practices at barangay level. A sample of 117 households surveyed in the barangay is used for the analysis. Factors that significantly impact waste generation are age of household head, employment status, household size, annual income, recycle and awareness about waste segregation policy. Thus, households with these characteristics should be focused to minimize households’ waste generation and improve current waste management practices. Awareness on various aspects of waste and accessibility of Material Recovery Facility can also help lessen waste generation and improve waste management processes. It was discovered that not all households have government provided services of waste collection and street sweeping. Therefore, there should be wider geographical coverage of door-to-door collection and street sweeping services.
