Health Care Waste Assessment Project

A partnership between the Local Government Unit of Baguio, Tertiary Hospitals in Baguio City and Health Care Without Harm-Asia.

In 2006, as part of Baguio City’s move toward a cleaner and safer environment, a Waste Assessment and Characterization study (WACS) was conducted by the Solid Waste Management Association of the Philippines (SWAPP) in partnership with the City Environment and Parks Management Office (CEPMO) of Baguio City. The results of the study shall be the basis for identifying and evaluating alternative management schemes and technologies appropriate to the local government unit (LGU) and the basis for improving the LGU’s service delivery on solid waste management. It will also serve as the framework for Baguio City’s ten-year Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan.
