The current waste management program in the City of Palayan clearly defines the responsibilities of both the city and the barangays in promoting garbage diversion and waste reduction. Citizens should learn about the five R’s of solid waste management (reduce, reuse, recycle, dispose, and segregate) to achieve this goal. One method of managing solid waste is called “segregation at source,” which entails sorting trash at the point of generation. Researchers in Palayan City, Philippines set out to gauge local knowledge and habits surrounding solid waste management. Researchers counted cases, tallied percentages, and calculated means and standard deviations to quantify the extent of its impact. The city of Palayan in the Philippine province of Nueva Ecija served as the study’s primary location. The residents of Palayan City’s Barangays serve as the respondents. Analysis of the data was performed using standard statistical methods, such as the percentage, frequency, and weighted mean. According to the findings, the vast majority of respondents backed the idea of purchasing only essential items and agreed that recyclables should be separated before being collected. Individuals who participated in the survey also knew about R.A. Philippine Clean Water Act of 2004 (Republic Act No. 9275). The vast majority of responders were aware that littering, throwing rubbish, and depositing trash in public spaces like roadways, esteros, and so on are all illegal. Respondents should not only be aware of the problems associated with solid waste but should also put their knowledge to use in order to alleviate those problems.
