in the Philippines? An average Filipino generates 0.3 and 0.5 kg (rural and urban areas, respectively) of solid waste daily. Makati City has a per capita waste generation of 0.71 kg. Of the country’s 16 regions, the National Capital Region accounts for 23 percent of the total solid waste generated in the country annually. What is the composition
of solid waste generated in the country? In Metro Manila, the National Solid waste Management Commission reports that
food/kitchen wastes account for about 45 percent of the total solid waste (estimated at 6,700 metric tons daily) generated in the area. Paper waste accounts for 16 percent; plastic, 15 percent; glass and wood, 9 percent; others 15 percent.
