READINESS AND EXTENT OF IMPLEMENTATION OF SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT OF MATINA PANGI AND MAA COMMUNITIES:
BASIS FOR ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM

By: Melissa C. Napil

ABSTRACT

Solid waste management is a factor of sustainable environmental development. However, many countries including the Philippines still consider solid waste management a problem. Hence, this study was conducted to determine if readiness significantly influence the extent of implementation of solid waste management in two communities namely, Matina Pangi and Maa, Davao City. The study revealed that the two communities are very much ready in terms of implementing solid waste management, and their extent of implementation of solid waste management was high. It was found that there was no significant difference on level of readiness and extent of implementation of solid waste management between the two communities. Finally, the influence of readiness on extent of implementation of solid waste was found significant.

Key words – Solid Waste Management, Readiness and Extent of Implementation of Solid Waste Management

INTRODUCTION

There is increasing evidence that community-based approaches to waste management, than top-down program created by bureaucrats, can promote a more sustainable development. The UNESCO Resource book on Environmental Education (1995) as cited by Santiago, et al, (1998) stressed that community readiness and participation are powerful strategies in attaining sustainable environmental development. Santiago accentuated that many countries are in crisis when it comes to this matter.

According to Tayo, et al., (2002), the inadequacy in community participation among other problems such as lack of public information and education, and lack of facilities like storage prior to the collection of waste, is one that hinders the implementation of Ecological Solid…...

...Introduction Solid waste management is a polite term for garbage management. As long as humans have been living in settled communities, solid waste, or garbage, has been an issue, and modern societies generate far more solid waste than early humans ever did. Daily life in industrialized nations can generate several pounds of solid waste per consumer, not only directly in the home, but indirectly in factories that manufacture goods purchased by consumers. Solid waste management is a system for handling all of this garbage; municipal waste collection is solid waste management, as are recycling programs, dumps, and incinerators. To the great benefit of archeology, early solid waste management consisted of digging pits and throwing garbage into them. This created a record of the kinds of lives that people lived, showing things like what people ate, the materials used to make eating utensils, and other interesting glimpses into historic daily life. When human cities began to be more concentrated, however, solid waste management became a serious issue. Houses that did not have room to bury their garbage would throw it into the streets, making a stroll to the corner store an unpleasant prospect. In response, many cities started to set up municipal garbage collection, in the form of rag and bone men who would buy useful garbage from people and recycle it, or waste collection teams which would dispose of unusable garbage. Waste Management Waste management is the collection,......

...A.2 Case Waste Management Synopsis In February 1998 Waste Management announced that it was restating its financial statements for 1993 through 1996. In its restatement, Waste Management said that it had materially overstated its reported pretax earnings by $1.43 billion. After the announcement, the company’s stock dropped by more than 33 percent, and shareholders lost over $6 billion. The SEC brought charges against the company’s founder, Dean Buntrock, and five other former top officers. The charges alleged that management had made repeated changes to depreciation-related estimates to reduce expenses and had employed several improper accounting practices related to capitalization policies, also designed to reduce expenses.1 In its final judgment, the SEC permanently barred Buntrock and three other executives from acting as officers or directors of public companies and required payment from them of $30.8 million in penalties.2 History In 1956 Dean Buntrock took over Ace Scavenger, a garbage collector owned by his father-in-law, who had recently died. After merging Ace with a number of other waste companies, Buntrock founded Waste Management in 1968.3 Under Buntrock’s reign as its CEO, the company went public in 1971 and then expanded during the 1970s and 1980s through several acquisitions of local waste hauling companies and landfill operators. At one point the company was performing close to 200 acquisitions a year.4 From 1971 to 1991 the company enjoyed 36 percent...

...the manner in which you dispose waste? For individuals, Hong Kong people have many wasteful habits. Plastic bags, expanded-polystyrene lunchboxes and over-packaged products are commonly used. A recycling programme that provides recycling bins has also been running in schools since 2000 to enhance students' understanding of the importance of conserving resources and separating waste. The increase in the volume of recyclables collected over the years proves the success of the programme in turning students' awareness into action. Overall speaking, Hong Kong has an imminent waste problem. At present, we rely solely on our landfills to dispose of our waste. 40% of our waste are for recycling. We must address the waste problem in a holistic manner. This Policy Framework sets out a comprehensive strategy consisting of a series of tried and proven policy tools and measures to tackle our waste problem head on and achieve the following targets: |Target 1: |To reduce the amount of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated in Hong Kong by 1% per annum up to the year 2014. | |Target 2: |To increase the overall recovery rate of MSW to 45% by 2009 and 50% by 2014. | |Target 3: |To reduce the total MSW disposed of in landfills to less than 25% by 2014. | Tackling the Problem at Source Waste avoidance and minimization......

...MMCOMRE/MMRECON teacher. I. Background Defintion Here is a brief definition basically of what garbage disposal is on a wider point: “Waste management is the collection, transport, processing, recycling or disposal, and monitoring of waste materials. The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics. Waste management is also carried out to recover resources from it. Waste management can involve solid, liquid, gaseous or radioactive substances, with different methods and fields of expertise for each.” Waste management or the proper ways of managing garbage (on laymen’s terms) is the right handling of things we, humans consume--whether it is food that we eat and discharge; or paper the we use up and throw away, or plastic bags over the supermarket that we no longer need afterwards—its all waste that needs proper management. History All throughout history, waste is already part of human life. The consumption of what is in our environment is already like instinct for man as the natural consumption has a natural produce of waste. Even at the times of ancient civilizations, the proper disposal of wastes has been practiced.  In the early 1900's, the leading countries like the United States, major parts of Europe and China are doing waste collection/composition.  Disposal methods has been evolving also from open pits located just outside the city walls on the......

...ELECTRONIC WASTE MANAGEMENT IN INDIA–ISSUES AND STRATEGIES KURIAN JOSEPH Centre for Environmental Studies, Anna University, Chennai, India Phone: 91-44-22301283; Fax: 91-44-22354717 SUMMARY: The current practices of e-waste management in India suffer from a number of drawbacks like the difficulty in inventorisation, unhealthy conditions of informal recycling, inadequate legislation, poor awareness and reluctance on part of the corporate to address the critical issues. The consequences are that (i) toxic materials enter the waste stream with no special precautions to avoid the known adverse effects on the environment and human health and (ii) resources are wasted when economically valuable materials are dumped or unhealthy conditions are developed during the informal recycling. The paper highlights the associated issues and strategies to address this emerging problem, in the light of initiatives in India. The paper presents a waste management system with shared responsibility for the collection and recycling of electronic wastes amongst the manufacturers / assemblers, importers, recyclers, regulatory bodies and the consumers. 1.INTRODUCTION The electronic industry is the world’s largest and fastest growing manufacturing industry (Radha, 2002; DIT, 2003).

Solid Waste Management Case Study

...IMPROPER SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT: A CASE STUDY AT BARANGAY 19, SAMPAGUITA STREET BATANGAS CITY Introduction Solid Waste Management refers to the collecting, treating, and disposing of solid material that is discarded because it has served its purpose or is no longer useful. Improper disposal of municipal solid waste can create unsanitary conditions, and these conditions in turn can lead to pollution of the environment and to outbreaks of vector-borne disease—that is, diseases spread by rodents and insects. The tasks of solid-waste management present complex technical challenges. They also pose a wide variety of administrative, economic, and social problems that must be managed and solved. The primary sources of solid waste include waste generated in residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial activities. Certain types of wastes that cause immediate danger to exposed individuals or environments are classified as hazardous; these are discussed in the article hazardous-waste management. All nonhazardous solid waste from a community that requires collection and transport to a processing or disposal site is called refuse or municipal solid waste (MSW). Refuse includes garbage and rubbish. Garbage is mostly decomposable food waste; rubbish is mostly dry material such as glass, paper, cloth, or wood. Garbage is highly putrescible or decomposable, whereas rubbish is not. Trash is rubbish that includes bulky items such as old refrigerators, couches, or large tree stumps....

Solid Waste Management for Small Hotels

... SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT FOR SMALL HOTELS JESSICA MOULD OKANAGAN COLLEGE Introduction Tourism is “one of the world’s fastest-growing industries”; as of 2012, “global tourism accounts for 1.2 trillion dollars (USD) in exports annually, 9% of worldwide GDP and is responsible for one out of every 12 jobs” [ (Canadian Tourism Commission, 2013) ]. Ninety percent of hotels worldwide are small hotels, e.g. hotels with less than 50 rooms (Radwan et al., 2010, p. 179). This essay addresses the problems associated with solid waste produced by the hotel industry including the difficulties faced by small hotels in managing their solid waste and ultimately describes benefits and solutions for sustainable waste management by small hotels. Waste minimizatioin is priority area 1 on Agenda 21 for the Travel and Tourism Industry [ (Stipanuk, 2006, p. 89) ]. The objective of priority area 1 is “to minimize resource inputs, maximize product quality, and minimize waste outputs” [ (Stipanuk, 2006, p. 89) ]. Waste is defined as “unused material produced as a result of inefficient production and/or consumption practices” that “puts economic and environmental costs on society through its collection, treatment and disposal” (Radwan et al., 2012, p. 535). “Waste can be regarded as a human concept as there appears to be no such thing as waste in nature” where “waste products created by a natural process or organism quickly become the raw products used by other processes and organisms”(Full......

Solid Waste Management

...sequence=1) In a developing country, the problems associated with solid waste management are more acute than in a developed country. Lack of financial resources and infrastructure to deal with solid waste creates a vicious cycle; lack of resources leads to low quality of service provision which leads to fewer people willing to pay for said services, which in turn further erodes the resource base and so on. The problem is further complicated by rapid growth in population and urbanization, which adds greatly to the volume of waste being generated and to the demand for waste retrieval service in municipal areas. However, more often than not, an increase in population is not matched with an equal increase in revenue for the local municipalities for waste management. Besides this, rapid urbanization means rapid growth of shanty dwelling units that are largely unplanned for, and add to the waste, health, and hygiene problems. Another significant factor that contributes to the problem of solid wastes in a developing country scenario is the lack of proper collection and transportation facilities. Improper planning coupled with rapid growth of population and urbanization serves to add congestion in streets, and as a result the waste collection vehicles cannot reach such places, thus allowing filth to build up over time. Lack of monetary resources, at times, results in improper or no transportation vehicles for waste disposal adding another dimension to the ever rising cycle of......

The Role of Zoom Lion in the Management of Solid Waste in the Wa Municipality

...the role of Zoomlion in the management of solid waste in the Wa Municipality. The broad objective of the study was to examine the role and effectiveness of Zoomlion in solid waste management and identify the types of waste disposed in the Wa Municipality. The information was obtained by both primary and secondary methods of data collection. These include the administering of questionnaire, interviews and observation and secondary data review. In all 100 households were sampled from the Zanko and Sokpayiri communities. The findings of the study indicated that the key factor considered in the selection of the disposal site was the location of site at the outskirt of the Wa Township, stench experienced in the Zanko and Sokpeyiri communities, the disposal not being engineered and open dumping is practiced in a demarcated and fenced area without management. In other to find permanent intervention mechanism to these problems, a number of relevant recommendations have been offered in the concluding chapter of this work. Some of these include; the government in collaboration with the Wa Municipal Assembly should speed up negotiations to approve management contract at the disposal site, the waste disposal site should be engineered and fully developed into landfill site, the Zanko community should be provided with a borehole in place of the one at the waste disposal site, the Wa Municipal Assembly should take a temporary measure to spray the waste in the containers at the......
