Cities of the Philippines and Waste Management: Dasmariñas City

Inspired by the exercise I conducted on the waste generation status of Philippine cities (see: here), I present a series of information summaries about significant cities.

Using a formulated data gathering template for online-only search, waste management information in the City of Dasmariñas is compiled.

Access the information sheet through this link:


With the information gathered, the following recommendations are forwarded for Dasmariñas City waste management research.

  • The City has no official website; a website is important for transparency and data gathering. Contact persons and basic city profiles are beneficial to the public, particularly for researchers.
  • Being a premier university towards ecological studies, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas must enjoin the local government and other institutions in its programs, including waste management.
  • Information on NSWMC dashboard and Province of Cavite Profile are not synchronized. It is important that communication is open for updating information, especially for facilities mandated by the law, e.g., closure of open dumpsites.

Do you have additional information I missed? Leave a comment!
