Students’ Perception towards the School’s Level of Implementation of Ecological Solid Waste Management

Students must be aware that the world generates 2.01 billion tons of municipal solid waste annually, with at least 33 percent of that not managed in an environmentally safe manner. In the Philippines, the same trend is observed. Contributing factor is the school’s Ecological Solid Waste Management ESWM . In this paper, the level of awareness, respondents’ practice and the problems encountered by the respondents in R.A. 9003 Act are evaluated. One hundred forty seven 147 Grade 12 General Academic Strand students were surveyed using validated structured questionnaires. Scores were validated and recorded. Weighted Mean to describe the ESWM implementation was employed in this study. Results revealed that the respondents are moderately aware WA=3.20 of the program, they always practiced segregation and proper solid waste disposal but are sometimes did recycling practices WA=2.32 Minor problems WA=2.45 on cooperation and self discipline but in dire need of waste segregation supplies. Since ESWM is everybody’s concern, further dissemination and information drive are required for its effective and improved implementation. It is also recommended to conduct school wide and further environmental awareness campaign at school. Grace N.
