Discipline: Community Development
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.
