Abstract
Every educational institution is mandated by law to educate the public on the theories and practices on solid waste management. To achieve effective and sustainable implementation of the proper waste management practices, awareness with participation is the key to be involved in the Solid Waste Management Program of an institution. Thus, this study was conducted to specifically look into the significant relationship between the awareness and practices on solid waste management among the college students of Mindanao State University - Maigo School of Arts and Trades. A descriptive correlation research design was used in this study with 253 randomly- selected college students. It employed an adopted questionnaire concerning the awareness of solid waste management of the students and their practices. Data were gathered, analyzed and interpreted using the frequency and percentage distribution and chi-square test. Findings showed that the awareness on solid waste management of the students was high; their practices in terms of segregation, reduce and recycle were good; and their practices in terms of recycle and disposal were fair. The awareness on solid waste management of the students had no influence on their practices in terms of disposal however their awareness had affected their practices specifically on segregation, reduce, reuse, and recycle.
