Waste generation, collection and disposal are major problems in the rapidly growing Batangas Bay Region, Philippines. To develop a framework by which waste management and disposal can be effectively carried out, a waste management plan was created. The plan provides a cross-sector and cross-media approach to waste management, utilizing the combined resources and capabilities of the public and private sectors.
