Waste and wastes
are unwanted or unusable materials. Waste is any substance which is discarded after primary use, or it is worthless, defective and of no use.
The term is often subjective (because what is waste to one need not necessarily be waste to another) and sometimes objectively inaccurate (for example, to send scrap metals to a landfill is to inaccurately classify them as waste, because they are recyclable).

E waste special
Published on Apr 21, 2017
Environmental groups worry that millions of electronic devices sold to the local market will end up in open dumpsites and communities like Smokey Mountain where improper disposal of e-waste has spurred a local economy of scavengers and junk shops. They believe that the way out is a system that holds manufacturers responsible for the recycling of electronic trash

Project 1 Phone
The program aims to recover and recycle electronic wastes, e-wastes, specifically mobile phones and portable devices such as tablets, so:
a. Promote proper disposal of mobile phones and other electronic wastes
b. Educate people about the potential harm that cell phones can have on our environment and the significant benefits to recycling an old cell phone

Why PH is world’s 3rd biggest dumper of plastics in the ocean
by Pia Ranada October 06, 2015

Irresponsible garbage hauling companies and the presence of open dump sites near rivers are two reasons why the Philippines is among the world's top ocean polluters, according to a new study

PH among top nations dumping plastic into seas
by/KD Suarez Feb 13, 2015

China emerged as the top contributor, with an estimated 1.32-3.53 MMT going into the sea, out of a total 8.82 MMT mismanaged plastic waste a year. Indonesia is next, with an estimated 0.48-1.29 MMT of plastic marine waste annually, followed by the Philippines, with around 0.28-0.75 MMT of plastic waste.

Temporary storage or dump site?
June 16, 2017 By Razel V. Cuizon

City Councilor Joel Garganera says that what was originally intended as a garbage transfer station in Barangay Inayawan now looks like a real dump site.
“It looks like a landfill already. It’s no longer a transfer station,” he said.

Cebu City Council pushing for rehab of Inayawan landfill
March 05, 2017 By Rona Joyce T. Fernandez
THE Cebu City Council wants the City Government to start working on the rehabilitation of the Inayawan Sanitary Landfill instead of apportioning one hectare inside the facility to set up a transfer station.

DENR chief’s order
October 21, 2016
It's good that Secretary Gina Lopez of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) visited Barangay Inayawan the other day to see for herself the situation in the controversial dump site. Because she was accompanied there by Cebu City Mayor Tomas Osmeña, who has insisted that the facility that has long outlived its lifespan can still be used for two more years, that visit also tested Lopez’s objectivity.
No rush to close dump site?
October 26, 2016
When Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Secretary Gina Lopez ordered her people in the region to issue a closure order for the Inayawan dump site during her visit to Cebu City last week, there was an obvious sense of urgency in her decision. She described the dump site, which is near the sea, as an “environmental bombshell.” That's a vague phrase, but the message is clear.
Osmeña’s obsession

Cebu City villages dump waste in SRP
December 18, 2016 By Razel V. Cuizon Elias O. Baquero
The Cebu City Government started dumping its garbage Saturday, December 17, on a vacant lot in the South Road Properties (SRP), two days after the appeals court ordered that the Inayawan Sanitary Landfill should be closed permanently.
Garbage trucks that belong to the City and some barangays started throwing trash on the lot, particularly the area near the Department of Public Services (DPS) compound and the property of Filinvest Land Inc. (FLI).

City’s new dump site
December 19, 2016
Cebu City Government is insisting that the lot at the South Road Properties (SRP) where the city's barangays are now dumping their garbage is a “transfer station” and not a dump site. The intention is obviously to deflect questions on the legality of such a move, which was done after the Court of Appeals (CA) ordered the closure of the Inayawan dump site a few days ago.

Garbage, too, is the waterloo of just about every local government unit.
While every garbage trader would want to get their hands on your PET bottles, they will not even touch your biodegradable materials.
