Waste management

Waste management (or waste disposal) includes the activities and actions required to manage waste from its inception to its final disposal. This includes the collection, transport, treatment and disposal of waste, together with monitoring and regulation of the waste management process.


Waste can be solid, liquid, or gas and each type has different methods of disposal and management. Waste management deals with all types of waste, including industrial, biological and household. In some cases, waste can pose a threat to human health. Waste is produced by human activity, for example, the extraction and processing of raw materials. Waste management is intended to reduce adverse effects of waste on human health, the environment or aesthetics

Waste Segregation Advisory

The Environmental Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (EMB-DENR) is enjoining everyone to observe proper waste segregation in their homes.  


We specifically call on all households who have members identified as Persons under Investigation (PUI) or Persons under Monitoring (PUM) to take extra precaution in handling their special wastes by initially disinfecting it with chlorine based solution prior to collection to prevent any further spread of the COVID-19 virus in the community.


Practicing proper waste segregation in accordance with Republic Act No. 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act and proper handling of household healthcare wastes such as used face masks and gloves that are considered as special wastes will help stop the spread of COVID19.


Local Government Units (LGUs) nationwide are likewise enjoined to ensure compliance of their constituents with the proper segregation, handling and disposal of wastes in accordance with the provisions of RA No. 9003 and RA No. 6969 otherwise known as Toxic Substances and Hazardous and Nuclear Wastes Control Act.
