T he Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) Training Guide is a synthesis of the
training modules and materials used by the Philippine Environmental Governance (EcoGov) Project
in assisting local government units (LGUs) in solid waste management planning and
implementation. The Guide provides a description of the training and mentoring approaches of
EcoGov as the Project aided the LGUs in systematically formulating various plans of action, including a 10-
year ISWM plan mandated by the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act (RA 9003). It puts together
lessons learned from the two-and-a-half years of Project experience in providing ISWM technical assistance
to a number of LGUs in EcoGov regions. In a way, this Guide may be considered a documentation of
EcoGov’s “best practices” in putting into place a governance-enhanced ISWM process.

    • About The ISWM Training GuideT he Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) Training Guide is a synthesis of the training modules and materials used by the Philippine Environmental Governance (EcoGov) Project in assisting local government units (LGUs) in solid waste management planning and implementation. The Guide provides a description of the training and mentoring approaches ofEcoGov as the Project aided the LGUs in systematically formulating various plans of action, including a 10-year ISWM plan mandated by the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act (RA 9003). It puts togetherlessons learned from the two-and-a-half years of Project experience in providing ISWM technical assistanceto a number of LGUs in EcoGov regions. In a way, this Guide may be considered a documentation ofEcoGov’s “best practices” in putting into place a governance-enhanced ISWM process.1 This Guide is intended for local service providers (LSPs)2 tasked to assist municipal and city LGUs inpreparing and implementing governance-enhanced ISWM plans. It serves as a reference to enhance theirunderstanding of the EcoGov technical assistance approach, to help them develop SWM training programsfor LGUs and to allow them to use EcoGov-developed analytical and decision-making tools that promotethe practice of transparency, accountability and participatory decision-making (TAP). This Training Guide has five major modules: Module 1: Governance in Solid Waste Management Module 2: ESWM Board Formation and Orientation Module 3: Solid Waste Management Assessment Module 4: Study Tour Module 5: SWM Plan Formulation and Legitimization Modules 3 and 5 are divided into several sub-modules. Each module and sub-module is described interms of coverage, objectives, expected final outputs and duration, as well as approach, tasks and participants.It should be noted that the modules do not refer only to the formal or classroom-type training activity. It alsocovers field activities where participants get to apply or test newly-acquired knowledge or skills. It describesas well the pre- and post-training activities that are necessary to facilitate completion of expected outputswithin the indicated period of training. Highlighted (in boxes) are the governance principles applied in each module to promote transparencyand informed decision-making, increase stakeholder participation and clearly establish accountabilities.Also pointed out are specific experiences of the EcoGov Team and the LGUs, which demonstrate significantimprovements in SWM practices. To ensure that training participants will get an appreciation of the concepts, policies, processes andtools relevant to the modules, the Guide devotes a significant portion to the content of the technical inputsprovided during the training. Recommended topics or inputs are provided in the Lecture Notes and discussionand facilitation guides that are found at the end of each module or sub-module. In addition, the Guide provides a set of annexes (each module has a corresponding annex, e.g., Annex1 for Module 1), which contains the guidelines, sourcebooks, templates and examples that have beendeveloped by the EcoGov ISWM Team for that particular module. The Guide does not include the detailed training programs and presentation materials used in previoustraining. This is to give users some flexibility in the design of their training activities.1 The Training Guide includes recommendations for future training activities, thus, the numbering and scope of the modules, and the approaches described may differ from those used in previous training and technical assistance activities.2 The service providers referred to here include DENR field offices, provincial governments, non-government organizations (NGOs), consulting firms, academic institutions and individual professionals. The ISWM Training Guide 1
    • Project BackgroundT he country’s rapidly increasing population, resulting in higher demand for the use of our natural resources and generation of more solid wastes, has brought about adverse effects on the environment. The government, with its limited capacity and resources, is thus, challenged to provide innovative mechanisms directed at shifting the people’s attitude and practices towards sustainable use of natural resources and reducing waste generation. It is believed that technical solutions alone may not be enough to overcome these challenges; ensuringthat good governance is part of environmental management options may prove to be the key in effectivelyaddressing these issues. It is in this light that the Philippine Environmental Governance Project (EcoGov) is strengthening LGUcapacity in incorporating good governance principles and practices in Coastal Resource Management(CRM), Forests and Forestlands Management (FFM) and Solid Waste Management (SWM). Specifically,the Project is assisting LGUs address the threats of over fishing and use of destructive fishing practiceswithin their municipal waters; illegal cutting and forest lands conversion; and unmanaged solid wastes. Thisassistance is in the form of training, coaching and mentoring LGUs in the conduct of resource and resourceuse assessments, evaluation of management options, planning, and initial implementation activities usingprocesses and tools that emphasize elements of good governance, such as transparency, accountabilityand participatory decision-making (TAP). At the national and regional level, the EcoGov Project provides policy and advocacy/IEC support toimproving coastal/forest resources and solid waste management, through the review and enhancement ofexisting policies, conduct of policy studies, and production of sourcebooks, primers and information materials.National policy and institutional support specific to the ISWM sector includes: Review of RA 9003 and its Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) to identify specific provisions that require more detailed implementing rules and regulations; Development of guidelines and procedures for assessing and measuring waste diversion by LGUs, joint LGU-DENR assessment of sites of SWM facilities, and clustering of LGUs for the use and co-management of disposal facilities; and Production of a full-cost accounting guidebook and source books on incentive systems, available financing facilities, and technical assistance sources. All these interventions are intended to contribute to the long-term economic development of the country. The Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI) is implementing the EcoGov Project in collaboration with theDepartment of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR). EcoGov national specialists and the Project’sregional teams, along with DENR and provincial government partners and a number of individual LSPs,provide technical assistance to LGUs.2 The ISWM Training Guide
    • The ISWM Modules in SummaryS WM is one of the functions devolved to Orientation on LGUs, making it their Governance in SWM/TWG Formation responsibility to provideSWM services to its constituents,given the rising SWM problems, ESWM Board Formation,particularly in urban and urbanizing Reconstitution and Orientationareas. Under RA 9003 and its IRR,all LGUs are mandated to formulatea 10-year ISWM plan that will define Solid Waste Assessmentits SWM strategy. To do this, LGUs (Situational Analysis) • Geographic and Physicalmust be equipped with the Characteristics of LGUnecessary skills and decision- • Socio-Economic Features & Trendsmaking tools to be able to come up • SWM Organizations & Resourceswith well thought out plans that • SWM Awareness & Practicescould be implemented successfully. • Waste Generation Disposal StudyThe EcoGov Project saw this need Touras an appropriate entry point forimproving good governance in the Vision and Strategy FormulationSWM sector.

    • LGU is encouraged to start identifying and implementing some immediately doable activities, even if theplan is still being prepared. Examples of activities that could be done immediately are IEC, improvement ofcurrent collection routes, some “housekeeping” practices in current dumpsite, formal creation of SWMoffice and designation of staff who will be responsible for the SWM program, linkages with other sectors(e.g., schools), and composting of market waste. Module 1: Governance in This introduces the concept of environmental governance and how Solid Waste Management it applies to SWM. It likewise includes an orientation on the EcoGov Project. This module is useful in the conduct of orientation/briefings 3 on environmental governance and in interactive assemblies (IAs) with LGUs interested to participate in the Project’s ISWM program. Module 2: ESWM Board This focuses on the creation of the ESWM Board, which is Formation and Orientation mandated by RA 9003. The module ensures that key sectors are represented in the Board, and that the members understand the technical and legal framework of SWM, and their role in SWM planning, implementation and monitoring and evaluation. The Board is given the opportunity to work out their working protocols. Module 3: Solid Waste This covers the whole process of SWM assessment, aimed at Management Assessment providing the bases for formulating strategies, determining targets and defining activities. In this module, bio-physical, socio-economic and other information that are relevant to SWM are analyzed. Also assessed are the practices of various solid waste generators, collectors and processors. Module 4: Study Tour This gives LGUs the opportunity to witness and learn from the experiences of other LGUs on SWM. The study tour allows the participants to directly interact with LGUs, which have initiated SWM programs or have established SWM facilities. This exposure broadens their understanding of the management options available. Module 5: SWM Plan This makes use of the analysis of the SWM information (Module 3) Formulation and and the lessons learned in the study tour (Module 4) in fleshing out Legitimization the SWM plan. The preparation of the SWM plan is done through five sequential sub-modules.Figure 2. Module Summaries3 At the start of EcoGov Phase 1, a series of regional/provincial IAs were held in the EcoGov regions to orient potential LGU partners on the Project.4 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Module 1 Governance in Integrated Solid Waste Management Module Coverage This module introduces the concept of environmental governance to the participants, emphasizing theincreasing recognition that weak or failure of governance, and not only the lack of technical solutions, is akey cause of environmental degradation. Environmental governance is discussed in relation to the principlesof decentralization, devolution and subsidiarity, and other related concepts, such as inter-generation andinter-spatial equity. Highlighted are three elements of good governance: transparency, accountability andparticipatory decision-making or TAP (See definitions and examples, Lecture Notes, EnvironmentalGovernance Elements, Page 8). The rationale for good governance in ISWM is explained in the context of the LGU mandates as providedfor in RA 9003 and its IRR, and in relation to the major threats poor waste management pose to public healthand environment. LGUs are cautioned not to make unilateral decisions and actions (or with no soundanalysis or firm basis) with respect to SWM as there are many stakeholders in SWM management that willbe affected. Also, ISWM is one LGU initiative that demands transparency as it requires substantial investmentof public funds and the process of procuring goods and services is often suspect. For many, SWM is viewedas a public good or service, thus, its efficient delivery is a manifestation of good governance. Part of this module is an overview of the EcoGov Project and its SWM component. Discussion focuseson the objectives, approaches and performance indicators of the EcoGov Project and the general process inthe selection of LGUs. Also discussed is the ISWM planning process to clarify the scope, nature and modeof delivery of the technical assistance provided by the Project. As the planning process is outlined, theinnovative approaches introduced (e.g., SWM assessment, incentive systems) and governance practicesapplied (e.g., joint analysis and decision-making) to specific planning and implementation activities arepointed out. Also emphasized are the advantages of joint planning by adjoining LGUs to consider sharingthe use of waste disposal facilities. Based on EcoGov experience, this module may be completed in 1-2 days, depending on activities thatwill be incorporated in the design. The ISWM Training Guide 5
    • Module Approach This introductory module may be used in interactive assemblies (IAs)4 conducted by the Project withLGUs interested in availing of EcoGov technical assistance. This module may also be used in Projectorientation and briefings for the Technical Working Group (TWG) and the ESWM Board of the LGU, andprovincial governments, DENR and LSPs to level off on the environmental governance concept and principlesand the EcoGov technical assistance approach. The module may either be conducted before or after signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)between the LGU, DENR and the EcoGov Project (See sample MOA, Annex 1). The module consists of at least three input sessions(See suggested outline, Lecture Notes, pages 7-10). It MEMBERS OF THE TWGis important that the resource persons in this module havea good grasp of the concepts and can relate good CHAIR Vice Mayor/City or Municipal Planninggovernance with SWM. Development Coordinator/SB Chair on Environment The design of the module may be modified toincorporate group or plenary activities in between the MEMBERStechnical inputs, such as discussions of local SWM Department Heads of:issues and challenges, sharing and assessment of past City/Municipal Engineering OfficeSWM efforts and achievement, and a preliminary analysis City/Municipal Planning Officeof the status of current environmental governance practices City/Municipal Agriculture Officein the LGU.

Resources (DENR) Department of Education (DepEd)Participants Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) For IAs, participants may include local chief executives Department of Agriculture (DA)(LCEs), Municipal/City Planning and DevelopmentCoordinators, Municipal/City Emvironment and NaturalResources Officers, and Sangguniang Bayan/PanglunsodChair of the Environment Committee. If used to orient TWGs and ESWM Board, participants shall includeall members.4 At the start of EcoGov Phase 1, a series of regional/provincial Interactive Assemblies or IAs were held in the EcoGov regions to orient potential LGU partners on the EcoGov Project. The IAs, which covered either only one or the three sectors, provided the venue for the sharing of experiences and discussion of local SWM issues and possible assistance from the project.6 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Lecture NotesEnvironmental GovernanceI. What is Environmental Governance? “Role of government in managing the inter-relationships between the various subsystems in nature, such as those within and among different species and ecosystems, including the economic, social and cultural subsystems” (Victor Ramos, 2001) It is about: Making decisions and carrying out supporting actions. First and foremost, the LGU has to define a clear SWM vision and mission, with a sound basis so it can have the support of stakeholders. Supporting actions will include: a. Issuance of sound policies b. Mobilization, realignment and approval of funds c. Law enforcement, penalties d. Monitoring performance after decisions and actions were carried out Upholding and supporting the rule of law, e.g., RA 9003, its IRR and other related laws Leveling the playing field for stakeholder participation, demand for accountability, access, incentives and penalties, investments, competition and enforcement Resolving disputes and conflicts among those affected by SWM Convergence of good governance and technical solutions The convergence of governance and technical solutions could spell the difference between a healthy environment and the Technical Solutions to Resource spread of diseases and disaster Management (TSRM) + Good Governance (GG)II. Environmental Governance Vision + Performance Indicators based on Effectiveness of governance - decisions and actions are all Standards (PIS) in support of a defined “ VISION AND MISSION” = Improved and Enhanced Environmental Efficiency of governance - decisions and actions are achieving Conditions the objectives of “TASKS;” they maximize limited resources in achieving objectives Consequence of governance - decisions and actions impact on “RELATIONSHIPS” between the suppliers and “demanders” of effective and efficient resource managementIII. Environmental Governance Actors Decision-makers and implementers/actors at different levels. Their legitimacy and credibility are important. Those affected by decisions and actions Those providing information, analysis and recommendations to decision-makers and actors Those acting on behalf of “vested interests” to influence decisions and actions Those representing the “conscience industry” – media, civil society organizations, church, schoolsIV. Prerequisites of Effective Environmental Governance Presence of accountable institutions with clear vision and strategy to achieving the vision. System for eliciting participation in decision-making, from planning to implementation; also in monitoring and evaluation System to ensure transparency of decisions and the basis of those decisions Existence of rule of law Presence of persons representing the “conscience industry” – media, civil society organizations, church, schoolsV. Environmental Governance: Key Concepts and Principles Decentralization, de-concentration and devolution. The central government formally cedes powers to actors and institutions at lower levels (devolution or democratic decentralization and administrative decentralization). The ISWM Training Guide 7
    • Subsidiarity and local organizational capacity. Decisions should be made at the lowest possible level where competence exists. In RA 9003, some responsibilities are vested in the barangay LGUs. Inclusion and participation Accountability Transparency and access to information Social justice, Forms of justice: community, retributive, procedural and distributive justice. Property rights: “Access right to a stream of benefits from a given set of resources,” such as coastal resource assets. Collaboration and partnership Stable and secure property rights Intergenerational and inter-spatial equity Trade-offs, externality, and opportunity costsVI. Environmental Governance Elements Transparency = Extent to which the general public has current, complete and reliable information about decisions and actions taken by a government unit or public agency. Key Result Areas a. Manner of generating, analyzing and disseminating information on LGU actions and decisions to the public b. Access to this information c. Period of information dissemination: before the decision/action; after the decision/action; only when demanded d. Quality of information provided: updated, complete and accurate Examples of Transparency Practices and Mechanisms a. Posting of plans/maps, ordinances and proceedings in public bulletin boards b. Periodic publication of performance audit reports, financial statements, reports on license/permit issuances, results of transactions/bidding c. IEC on local legislations enacted Accountability = Degree to which the officials and staff of a government unit or of an agency are held responsible for their decisions, actions and performance. State officials, public employees and private sector are answerable to their constituents for policies, actions and use of fund. Key Result Areas a Identification of persons/groups responsible for particular actions and decisions in plan documents, ordinances and orders b. Performance monitoring and evaluation procedures c. Recognition of good performance/observance of procedures d. Clear sanctions for violations of standards and procedures Examples of Accountability Practices and Mechanisms a. Clear definition of roles and responsibilities b. Periodic public expenditures review c. Clear sanctions and incentives d. Periodic conduct of performance audit e. Periodic assessment of policies Participatory Decision-Making = Degree that the general public, especially key stakeholders and marginalized groups have access and opportunities to influence the decision or action of government or public agency Key Result Areas a. Manner of identifying stakeholders of a particular activity b. Degree of representation of stakeholders in decision-making at various stages of project planning and implementation c. Incentive provisions for participation of stakeholders Examples of Participatory Decision-Making Practices and Mechanisms a. Consensus-building; establishment of conflict resolution mechanisms b. Public consultations and hearings prior to decision-making/legitimization of plans/issuances of ordinances c. Multi-sector representation in committees, working groups, management councils, enforcement groups d. Participatory M and E; community feedback system8 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Good Governance In Solid Waste ManagementI. ESWM vs. ISWM ESWM = systematic administration of activities which provide for segregation at source, segregated transport, storage, transfer, processing, treatment and disposal of solid waste and all other waste management activities which do not harm the environment” — RA 9003. ISWM = selection of a combination of techniques, technologies and management objectives; well- coordinated and organized set of actions: source reduction, recycling, waste transformation and land filling.II. Is SWM a Public or Private Service? As public service: must meet environmental acceptability of disposal system and level of customer satisfaction As private service: must minimize cost or maximize profit while meeting environmental standards Constraints in public driven SWM services Combination of public and private services in ISWMIII. Objectives of ISWM: Protection of health and environment Reduce recurrent costs and capital cost of constructing and maintaining disposal facilitiesIV. Why Environmental Governance in ISWM Solid waste impacts public health and environmental safety The impacts of unmanaged solid waste have intergenerational (i.e., future generations will benefit or suffer from current decisions) and inter-spatial effects (e.g., carcinogens, fisheries, water, dioxins) There are many stakeholders (on and off site) thus decisions and actions cannot be unilateral Procurement related to providing SWM services are susceptible to “rent seeking behavior” and monopoly ISWM is perceived as a public good or service to constituents; its efficient delivery is a manifestation of good governance Sound governance of ISWM leads to “buy-ins” of stakeholders who have vested interest to sustain and protect services (i.e., with profit motive or volunteerism) ISWM has immediate impacts on the environment (i.e., smell, aesthetics, diseases)V. Who are involved in governance of ISWM? Decision makers and implementers (primarily LGU, DENR) Those impacted by decisions and actions (communities where waste disposal facilities are located; waste generators, etc) Those providing information, analysis and recommendations to decision-makers and implementers (LGU and DENR technical staff, technical assistance, service providers, consultants, etc) Those with “vested interests” to influence decisions and actions (e.g., suppliers of equipment, contractors, etc) The “conscience industry” – media, civil society organizations, church, schoolsVI. Key ISWM Decisions and Actions Requiring Good Governance Waste Collection: Accountability of collectors, transparency in procuring or sourcing required logistics, participation of stakeholders Transport: transparency in procurement, accountability of those deciding on procurement, participation of technical staff Processing and disposal: transparency in design and procurement, transparency in the issuance of Notices to Proceed (NTPs) and Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC), accountability of those who prepared design and issued ECC, participation of specialists and stakeholders Financing: accountability of LGU officials, transparency in sourcing and using funds, participation of SB, MDC and barangays Implementation: participation of key sectors, accountability of each decision-maker, transparency in procurement and financial expenditures, transparency in work and financial planning Performance monitoring: participation in developing criteria and conduct and analysis, political will to deal with accountable officials, transparency in discussing results and lessons learned The ISWM Training Guide 9
    • VII. Summary The processes and outputs in ISWM planning and implementation are all about “POWER” and “CONTROL” over decisions and actions “POWER” to initiate and sustain action; capacity to translate intentions into reality and sustain it There is need to balance, direct, appropriate and equally distribute these powers among different stakeholders Question: What are and where are those powers vested with respect to ISWM planning and implementation?The Philippine Environmental Governance ProjectI.

    • Module 2 ESWM Board Formation and Orientation Module Coverage This module calls for the formation and the proper orientation of the ESWM Board as a first step incomplying with the provisions of RA 9003. During the Board formation, particular attention is given to theneed for the representation of various groups, especially the private/civil society sector. The orientation is conducted to ensure that the Board members understand the fundamentals of SWMand environmental governance, its legal framework (this includes discussion on the Local GovernmentCode, RA 9003 and its IRR, etc.), and their roles in ISWM planning and implementation. By clarifying allthese, it is expected that the members’ activeparticipation in the ISWM process will beencouraged, thus, enhancing the Board’s TAP principles emphasizedeffectiveness. This module emphasizes TAP principles: The module also allows the Board to define theirworking protocols (such as agreeing on meeting a) Roles, functions and accountabilities are clarifiedschedules and notices, sub-committees, quorum to ensure a more responsive public service.and voting rules, and secretariat support). Also b) Unilateral decisions are strongly discouraged asclarified during the discussions is the source of the there are many stakeholders (on and off site)Board’s operating budget. involved in SWM decisions and actions. c) Representation of critical sectors in the Board is The preparation of an action plan forms part of strongly encouraged as it is a requirement of thethe module. A review is made of the ISWM planning law.process and modules and an overall work plan isprepared with the participants.Expected Module Outputs The expected outputs are: 1) a draft Executive Order creating or reconstituting (whatever is necessary)the ESWM Board; 2) agreed working protocols with ESWM Board Resolution adopting them, and 3) actionplan for subsequent activities. A sample of the working protocol is found in Annex 2. Two days are allotted for this module. The ISWM Training Guide 11
    • Module Approach Two technical input sessions are suggested for this module. The first orients the Board members on thefundamentals and guiding principles of SWM and review with them important concepts in environmentalgovernance. The second focuses on the important provisions of RA 9003 and its IRR, and other relatedlaws, focusing on the mandatory requirements that apply to LGUs. The suggested outline for both of theselectures are in the Lecture Notes on pages 13-14. Note that it will be helpful if some topics in Module 1 arerepeated in this module, especially if not all participants were able to attend Module 1. There will be guided discussion which will include, among others, reviewing the current compositionand functions of the Board (if existing) to assess if they are in accordance with RA 9003. The membersthemselves will have to determine whether there is a need to reconstitute the Board (again based on RA9003 requirements) and proceed with the identification of the additional sectors that have to be representedin the Board. If no Board formally exists yet, the participants will have to identify those who should be made membersof the Board, based on RA 9003 requirements and recommendations of those present in the orientation.The participants will have to include private sector/civil society representatives in the Board, and agree onhow the representatives shall be selected. This is very important, especially in cases where there areseveral organizations that can sufficiently represent the sectors (e.g., Who should represent the recyclersif the there are several independent junkshop operators in the LGU?) or if none exists (e.g., Who shouldrepresent the business sector if there is no Chamber of Commerce?). It is part of good governance that the proposed criteria and process for selection of representatives areclearly documented so that the method will be consistently followed. The discussions should also clarifythe roles and functions of the Board and clearly establish its accountabilities as spelled out in RA 9003 andits IRR. It will be necessary for the LCE, who is also the Board chair (as per RA 9003), to issue an ExecutiveOrder creating (or reconstituting) the Board and defining its functions and accountabilities. Another guided discussion focuses on how the Board will operate. The members will have to agree ontheir internal rules with respect to regularity of meetings, attendance and quorum, method of voting, internalstructure, secretariat and funding for its operations. Agreements reached will be consolidated to produce adraft of the Board’s working protocols. A Board resolution will formalize the adoption of the working protocols.The final discussion will be on the preparation of an action plan for the conduct of the succeeding modules.The activity calendar will consider scheduling regular Board meetings so that decisions and actions onissues could be addressed in a timely manner.Participants The module is designed primarily for members of the ESWM Board, but should include members of theLGU technical working group (TWG)5. If there is no ESWM Board yet, the module participants will includethose identified in RA 9003 as mandatory members of the Board as well as representatives of other sectors,which the LCE thinks should be included. The resource persons for this module should be knowledgeable of the basics of SWM, environmentalgovernance, and RA 9003 and its IRR. An experienced facilitator is necessary.5 In many cases, the TWG becomes the interim action arm or secretariat of the Board , for the duration of the ISWM planning activity.12 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Lecture NotesFundamentals of SWMI. Factors that Contribute to the SWM Problem Spiralling population growth rate and rapid urbanization Changing lifestyles and consumption patterns Public indifference Inadequate government policies and lack of enforcementII. General Situation of Solid Waste in the Philippines Daily Waste Generation Per Capita in the Philippines Rural barangays = 0.2 kg to 0.4 kg Urbanizing barangays = about 0.5 kg Urban barangays = 0.6 kg to 0.7 kg Distribution: domestic/households - 70%; industrial - 20%; commercial - 10% Attitude or indifference? People lack of appreciation of SWM; people believe that it is government’s responsibility; inefficient collection of garbage; non-operation of a good disposal facilityIII. Health Impacts of Improper Solid Waste Handling and Disposal Respiratory ailments resulting from odor and emissions Skin diseases Injuries or cuts from broken glass, cans, hard plastics and other sharp objects Proliferation of insects and rodents that may act as passive vectors in transmitting diseases Asphyxiation due to exposure to gases Contamination of drinking water from leachate percolation Food poisoning due to insect colonization and vermin proliferationIV. Environmental Impacts of Improper Solid Waste Handling and Disposal Depletion of ozone layer leading (due to methane gas generation and burning) to global warning Air pollution which produces acid rain Land pollution, which reduce its value Water pollution and flooding due to dumping in rivers and lakes Groundwater contamination due to leachateV. Definitions of Key Terms Waste, solid waste Solid waste management Source Reduction, recycling, treatment and disposalVI. Guiding Principles for SWM Waste is a resource Waste prevention is better than waste regulation and control. There is no single management and technological approach to solid waste. All elements of society are fundamentally responsible for 11% of methane gas generated in SWM. Those who generate waste must bear the cost of its Philippines comes from waste dumps management and disposal. SWM should be approached in the context of resource conservation, environmental protection and health, and sustainable development. SWM programs should take into consideration the physical and socio-economic conditions of the concerned communities and be designed according to their specific needs.VII.

    • Module 3 Solid Waste Management AssessmentT his module guides the LGU in conducting an assessment of SWM practices and waste generated to provide a sound basis for the formulation of an SWM plan. The outputs of this module will be used in identifying and evaluating alternative management schemes and technologies that are appropriate to improve the LGU’s delivery of ISWM services to its constituents. Participants will be trained on how to generate importantdatabases necessary to develop a doable ISWM plan that Good info, sound analysisintegrates TAP principles in all the steps of the assessmentprocess. SWM decisions and actions have to be based on good information and sound Information on the sources, characteristics and composition analysis.of the waste streams will be gathered to analyze possible The SWM assessment findings willopportunities for source reduction and recycling, techniques help the LGU set its targets (i.e., By how muchemphasized in RA 9003 and its IRR to divert waste from the % can the LGU reduce its waste stream?),disposal sites. develop SWM strategies and interventions (i.e., What area in the municipality will be These and other information are necessary to arrive at sound covered by LGU collection? What IEC strategyISWM decisions (such as the size of the disposal facility required, will be effective?

Whatcollection, area requirements for materials recovery facilities or will be the capacity of its composting facility?MRFs and the landfill, etc.). Of its disposal facility? ) The knowledge on the current SWM practices will be veryuseful in deciding the type of IEC to be conducted, organizational set-up, budgetary support, and enforcementinstruments needed to implement a sustainable ISWM program. The module will have three sub-modules: Sub-module 3A - Orientation on Assessment and Sampling Methods. This will prepare the TWG for the data collection task. This is very critical as the success of the succeeding activities will depend on the kind of preparations done, including a good understanding of the process. Sub-module 3B - Survey of Practices and Seven-Day Waste Characterization6. This pertains to the actual collection of the data, requiring seven days of intensive work and making accurate measurements and correct recording. Teamwork is of utmost importance. Sub-module 3C - Data Analysis. This allows for the organization, processing and interpretation of data for decision-making. These sub-modules are sequentially arranged; the outputs of one become the inputs to the succeedingsub-module.6 This covers a payday and market day in order to capture variability in waste generation. The ISWM Training Guide 15
    • Expected Module Output The final output of this module is an SWM situational analysis. Major elements of the situationalanalysis are a) baseline data on waste generation from identified sources; b) baseline data on wastedisposal at the dumpsite; and c) descriptions of current SWM practices and awareness level. The first twosets of data are to be contained in a database; they may be further analyzed to generate additional informationand serve as basis for future evaluation.Participants The participation of as many sectors as possible is encouraged in this module, particularly in Sub-Module 3B. It will be helpful if the activity involve members of the ESWM Board, all TWG members, LGUoffices, representatives from the concerned national government agencies such as Department of Interiorand Local Government (DILG), Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department ofScience and Technology (DOST), and NGO as well as people’s organizations (PO) representatives (suchas vendors’ associations, homeowners associations, business groups, youth, media and other civicorganizations). Sub-Module 3C will, however, be limited to those who are directly involved in processing thegathered data. This module takes about two months to complete. . SUB-MODULE 3A. ORIENTATION ON ASSESSMENT AND SAMPLING METHODS Sub-module Coverage Sub-Module 3A provides an overview of the need for, and the scope of, the solid waste assessment. Theparticipants are expected to have a clear idea of the types of primary and secondary information that will beneeded for the situational analysis, and the range of methods that can be used to generate the neededinformation. The sub-module focuses on two major assessment activities: the SWM awareness and practicessurvey and the seven-day characterization of waste (from major waste sources and at end-of-pipe).7 Thesub-module emphasizes the importance of establishing baseline information and using such data in thedesign and formulation of SWM interventions. Participants are given hands-on training on how these two activitieswill be done in Module 3B, on the data collection and recording Encouraging teamworkinstruments that will be used, and on the determination and selectionof the sample for the SWM practices and awareness survey and the Their experience in the wasteseven-day waste characterization exercise.

    • information they generate. It must be emphasized to them that as owners and users of the information, theymust ensure the integrity and usefulness of the information. This means they have to be diligent in followingand documenting the sampling, data collection, recording and processing procedures.Expected Sub-module Outputs Outputs of the sub-module include: a) Sampling plan that shows the list/distribution and classification of establishments and households from which the sample is taken, the assumptions made, the procedures undertaken to stratify the population and to determine sample sizes, and the households/establishments in the sample, preferably shown in a map; b) Action plan to complete all preparatory activities for Sub-module 3B and for the actual collection of various data (including secondary data); and c) Final survey and recording instruments. This sub-module may be completed in 3-4 days. A total of 10-12 days will be needed if pre-workshopand post-workshop activities are included. Sub-module Approach The initial technical input explains the objectives and scope of the SWM assessment, leading to adiscussion on the basic data requirements (See Checklist, pages 20-21). The maps and statistics that aredeemed important and their official sources will be identified. It is recommended that samples of maps andactual data taken from previous assessments done in EcoGov LGUs be used during the lecture session toillustrate the value of the information for ISWM planning. The EcoGov Project adopted NSWMC Form8 (SeeAnnex 3A) to document the LGU’s SWM profile. The second technical input will be on the SWM awareness and practices assessment. This has twoparts: a survey and a “look-see” of actual practices with some key informant interviews and focus groupdiscussions to be conducted. Participants will be given a walk-through of a guide listing the important sectors, events and places thatwill be covered by the assessment, the key questions that may be asked and specific practices that will beobserved and documented. The assessment must cover the major waste generators (such as households,commercial establishments, market vendors, etc), those who are involved in recovery or recycling (such asjunkshop owners, itinerant scrap buyers and scavengers) and waste generators who produce significantamount of special wastes (e.g., hospitals, clinics, gasoline stations). It must look at how people behaveand dispose of their waste in major events in the LGU (e.g., “pintakasi,” sports events, fiestas) or in publicplaces (e.g., parks, rivers, beaches, market). The discussion of the guide is followed by a workshop where the participants will identify the sectors/events/places in the LGU that will be relevant to study. The participants can also be assisted in developingthe interview questions for each sector. The next major part of the sub-module is the orientation on waste characterization. The purpose of theactivity, the different types of wastes that will be measured and the step-by-step process of doing theassessment will be presented. The waste characterization will cover both waste generated at source andwaste collected and brought to the disposal site. The former will be measured from a sample of householdsor establishments/institutions, while the latter will be taken from a sample of garbage trucks.8 In the future, this form will be revised to better capture existing resources and programs of the LGU. The ISWM Training Guide 17
    • The rationale for holding the exercise for seven days and the inclusion of a payday and market day in the study period will be explained. See Lecture Notes, Waste Characterization, pages 22-23 for the outline of the waste characterization procedures. The final technical inputs will be on sampling, covering the definition of terms or concepts used and the different methods to be employed for households (stratified, random) and establishments/institutions (purposive, judgment). These will be outlined and illustrated with the use of an actual case study. The reason for limiting the sample to the collection barangays and taking a pre-sample of households will also be explained. The current solid waste collection system will be discussed so that the appropriate sample for the end-of-pipe waste can be determined (See Lecture Notes on Sampling and Sampling Procedures, pages 24-25 and Annex 3B for sampling guidelines). The participants will then be guided in preparing for the one-day Group decision-making practice waste characterization and survey. In this activity, the participants will establish the total population of each of the key Participants practice good sector category/sub-category and their distribution per barangay orgovernance as they have to agree on per type of barangay (See Annex 3C for the suggested categoriesvarious matters—as a group—before and sub-categories) and select a number that will serve as practiceproceeding to the next activities. sample.Examples of agreements that should bereached at the end of the workshop At the end of the workshop, the participants should agree on theinclude number of sample establishments, number of sample establishments/institutions per category/sub-distribution of sample households, etc. category and the distribution of sample households for differentEach participant’s accountability to the income classes (low, middle, high, urban poor) and barangay typesgroup is also clarified by defining the task (upland, built-up, coastal). A decision should have also been reachedeach group member shall perform. on the distribution of tasks among the participants. All the arrangements should have been done with the prospective cooperator households and establishments/institutions, and with the caretakers of the areas where the characterization will be done. Examples of these preparatory activities include sending out copies of the letter from the LCE regarding the exercise to all those who will be involved, orientation of cooperators on the objectives and mechanics of the exercise, preparing properly labeled plastic bags for distribution to cooperators, procurement of needed tools and equipment, arrangements for pick-up of waste sample from sources and for designation of waste characterization area within dumpsite and/or other wide, open spaces like a basketball court or a barangay center. To facilitate the process, it is suggested that even before the start of this sub-module, the participants prepare: a) A list of business establishments and institutions in the LGU with their respective location, b) Current estimates of households by barangay, c) Map showing settlements/built-up area within the solid waste collection area, and d) Documentation of current waste collection schedule and route. A copy of the LGU’s Comprehensive Land Use Plan (CLUP) should also be made available during the workshop. The practice SWM awareness and practices survey and waste characterization will be held in one day. The identified cooperators are first interviewed about their SWM awareness and practices, while the collection truck collects the waste samples. The participants then converge in the waste characterization area and start the task of measuring, segregating, drying and again measuring the collected waste. Measurements made and other observations are recorded in a standard form (See Annex 3D). The forms are then consolidated and the results entered in a computer program. 18 The ISWM Training Guide
    • The final day of the workshop is devoted to the analysis of the data generated. This provides an exampleof how the actual data will be analyzed. The waste generation data of the households will be examined andthe standard deviation will be computed to determine the extent of variability across income levels andlocations. After agreeing on the assumption that will be taken regarding the standard of error and confidencelevel, the sample size for the actual seven-day survey and characterization is computed using the formula: Small sample formula: 2 t a/ 2 * s n= ( E ) Large sample formula: 2 z a/2 * s n= ( E ) Before the close of the workshop, a few hours is allocated to assess their initial experience with theSW awareness and practices survey and waste characterization. The participants are made to prepare anaction plan for the finalization of: a) The sampling plan including the list of cooperators, b) Survey and recording instruments, c) Schedule of activities, d) Team composition organization and assignment of individual members, e) Logistic requirements, and f) All pre-activity arrangements for the next activity. The action plan is to include the schedule for the collection of secondary data. A checklist on the pre-activity arrangements for Module 3B is included in the lecture notes on the waste characterization process.An example of a sampling plan is in Annex 3E.Participants The participants in this sub-module are members of the TWG and the Board. The TWG may decide toinvolve representatives of other offices at the LGU and civil society groups. The ISWM Training Guide 19

    • Lecture NotesWaste Characterization ProcessI. What is waste characterization? The process of generating information on the quantity (tons per day, kg per day) and composition (i.e., biodegradable, recyclable, special, residual) of solid waste generated through the actual measurement and classification of waste samples from various waste generators and from waste brought to the dumpsite for disposal. It provides baseline information that will allow the LGU to evaluate in the future its SWM performance, in terms of reducing waste generation and diverting recyclable/compostable waste from the disposal facility.II. Main features of the process Covers both ends of the waste stream – from waste sources (households, establishments, institutions, public market) to the “end of the pipe” or disposal site Measures potential waste diversion from the waste stream – the % of recyclable and biodegradable component of the end-of-pipe waste Has to be periodically conducted to be able to determine improvement in waste diversion. Spans seven consecutive days, to include a payday and a market day, in order to capture variability in waste generation Uses sample of households and establishments/institutions. Data generated are organized into a databaseIII. Stages in Waste Characterization RA 9003 requires LGUs to divert A. Preparatory Stage 25% of their waste from disposal Identify waste sources (refer to Annex 3E for list of sectors/ sites within five years from the sub-sectors). Determine number of establishments and effectivity of the law. institutions, scale of operations (small, medium, large) and barangay location; determine number of households in collection or urban barangays, classify households as coastal, uplands, lowlands. Secure information on existing collection scheme: number of garbage truck deployed per day, collection route of each truck (e.g., market only, market plus commercial area; residential only, residential plus commercial) Determine sample size for households, establishments and institutions and collection trucks (procedures are discussed in succeeding lecture); identify specific households, establishments/ institutions and garbage trucks. Prepare route for collection of sample from cooperators and discuss with assigned garbage collection crew. Prepare introduction letter from Mayor and instruction sheets for cooperators. At least two days before the start of activity, individually orient the cooperators about the activity and distribute plastic bags (2 bags per day per sample unit). Procure required tools and materials: plastic pails, rake, garden forks and trowel, plastic liners/ sorting mat, garbage bags, weighing scales, gloves and nose masks. Calibrate the volume of plastic pails and get their empty weights. Prepare the tags (“nabubulok” and “di nabubulok”) for garbage bags. Provide for drinking water and food for those involved and first aid kit for emergencies and injuries. Identify who will be in charge of first aid and logistics. Identify suitable waste characterization site – not enclosed, with road access (for garbage truck), with sufficient drying area. Have area secured from children and stray animals. Prepare layout of waste characterization area, designating space for unloading/loading waste, for weighing, sorting and drying waste, for logistics, resting and meals. Prepare and reproduce copies of recording forms and interview questionnaires. Train those who will be involved (including hired labor) on procedure. Form teams and assign tasks to members of each team (e.g., supervisor/leader, weighing, recorder). All participants should experience sorting/characterization.22 The ISWM Training Guide

    • Sampling and Sampling ProceduresI. Definitions and Importance of Sampling Definition of sampling: that part of the statistical practice concerned with the selection of individual observations intended to yield some knowledge about a population of concern, especially for the purpose of statistical inference; selection of individuals from a population of interest. Importance of sampling Population; sampling vs. census Sampling frames – a listing of units corresponding as closely as possible with the full population and from which a sample is drawn. Two types of frames: list frame (names and addresses) and area frame (list of geographic areas) Sample size (the number of observations in a sample) Sample units (items in the sampling frame); respondent unit (provider of information); unit of analysis (unit about which information is provided)II. Sampling Process Define objectives of sampling and identify population of concern Specify sampling frame and sampling methods, and develop sampling plan Collect relevant data and do sampling Review the sampling processIII. Sampling Errors Since the sample is only a portion of the population, sampling error is inevitable. Objective is to minimize the sampling error Characteristics of sampling errors: Generally decreases as sample size increases Depends on size and variability of characteristics of the population Can be accounted for and reduced by an appropriate sampling plan Can be measured and controlled in probability sample surveys Sources of sampling error: a) sampling method, b) estimation method, c) sample size, and d) variability of the sample’s characteristics. Sampling is not dependent on size of population Measuring sampling errorIV. Sampling Methods Probability sampling: selection of sample from a population based on principle of randomization or chance. Non-probability sampling: assumes an even distribution of characteristics within the population. Every unit in the population has equal chance of being selected.V. Application of Sampling in SWM Assessment Objectives of sampling; types of information to be generated by the study Process flow of sampling Define the population and key features. Population = waste sources (see box). Where are they located? Is there a distinct pattern of distribution of households, establishments and institutions? Establish the sampling frame (e.g., population distribution by barangay, household list per barangay, list if establishments from Treasurer’s Office, LGU’s schedule of trucks for waste collection) Sample size determination. Use example from EcoGov LGUs. a. Households - Define sampling method to use - Pre-sample of households (stratified geographically and by income level: high, medium, low) - Estimate sample based on identified parameters - Allocate estimated sample, applying stratification and proportional sampling b. Non-residential - Purposive sampling (judgmental /quota sampling). See list of sectors and sub-sectors in Annex 3E.24 The ISWM Training Guide
    • c. End-of-pipe waste (trucks) - If LGU collects waste separately from each source (i.e., a separate truck assigned to market waste collection, a different truck assigned to household waste, one truck assigned to waste from commercial establishments), characterize one truckload of market waste per day per source, with truck selected at random (if more than one truck per source). If LGU mixes the waste coming from various sources, completely characterize one truckload of mixed wastes with the truck selected at random. If only market waste is collected separately, characterize one truckload of market waste and one truckload of mixed wastes per day.The ISWM Training Guide 25
    • SUB-MODULE 3B. SWM AWARENESS AND PRACTICES ASSESSMENT, AND SEVEN-DAY WASTE CHARACTERIZATION Sub-module Coverage Module 3B is devoted to generating information on: a) The level of awareness of waste generators on proper SWM; b) Common SWM practices of various sectors in the LGU; c) Perceptions on the LGU’s current SWM services; d) Volume/weight and composition of wastes generated by different sectors; e) Volume/weight and composition of wastes brought to the dumpsite daily; and f) Percent of solid waste that can potentially be diverted from the waste stream through reduction, recycling and processing. The SWM awareness and practices study will have a survey component, mainly to determine awarenesslevels, perceptions and common SWM practices. The data gathered through the survey is supplementedwith observations, interviews with key informants and focus group discussions. The waste characterization has two components: a) Characterization of sample wastes collected from various cooperators; and b) Characterization of the solid wastes load of sample garbage trucks. The waste characterization is done daily for one week.The seven days are to include a payday (i.e., 15th or 30th of the month) and a market day to capture theexpected increases in waste generation during these days. Both the SWM awareness and practices surveyand the characterization of waste from major sources will have the same sample households andestablishments/institutions.Expected Sub-module Outputs Outputs of the sub-module are tabulated survey data, complete waste characterization data recordingforms (See Annex F), encoded waste characterization data, and written findings from ocular observations,key informant interviews and focus group discussions (FGDs). The activity, including data tabulation andencoding, may be completed in 2 weeks. The smooth conduct of these activities will depend largely on the preparations undertaken by the TWG.This means that adequate time has to be allotted for preparatory activities, rather than immediately conductingSub-module 3B after completing Sub-module 3A. Sub-module Approach The TWG and ESWM Board members will be divided into work groups. Each group will be responsiblefor one or more sectors/sub-sectors in the conduct of the SWM awareness and practices assessment andwaste characterization. One group will have to be assigned to the end-of- pipe waste characterization. Thissame group may be tasked to also cover the assessment of SWM activities/practices of junkyard operators,itinerant scrap buyers and scavengers. The survey part of the SWM awareness and practices survey is usually conducted on Day 1 of theseven-day characterization. The survey interviews can best be done in the morning while the solid wastesamples are being collected and transported to the waste characterization area. The participants focus ondoing the actual waste characterization exercise during the rest of the week. After the seventh day, the26 The ISWM Training Guide

The post-workshop requirements in Sub-Module 3Aserves as the pre-workshop activities of Sub-Module 3B.The post-activity of this sub-module is the tabulation andencoding of collected data. It is necessary to organize ashort hands-on training session (one day) on the Excel-based program for those who will be encoding the data.This session will include techniques in spotting the morebasic data errors (e.g., wrong additions, wrong conversionto volume; missing data entries). It is critical that theassigned LGU personnel are familiar with theuse of the Excel software.Participants It is encouraged that all TWG and ESWMBoard members experience doing wastecharacterization. This activity should involve asmany sectors as possible as this is not onlyvery educational; it also promotes teamworkamong those who will be involved in planningand actual implementation of the plan, includingthe conduct of IEC. Some laborers may be hiredto help in this activity; they must go through anorientation before they are deployed. The ISWM Training Guide 27
    • SUB-MODULE 3C: DATA ANALYSIS Sub-module Coverage The objective of this sub-module is to analyze and interpret the data generated from the SWM awarenessand practices survey and waste characterization exercise.

The process begins with reviewing the encoded raw data to ensure that no encoding errorshave been made as this will certainly affect the outcome of the analysis. In analyzing data, participants aretaught to use the scatter plot technique9 and trend analysis to check for any data abnormalities. TheEcoGov has a suggested method for dealing with such abnormal values. For the survey, the processingrequired will mainly be frequency counting and computing the percentage distribution of responses tocertain questions. A large part of the processing and analysis work will be devoted to the waste characterization data, themain focus of this sub-module. The following are expected to be generated from waste characterizationdata: a) Per capita waste generation (in kg per capita); b) Daily waste generation by source and the corresponding waste composition; and c) Daily waste disposal and composition of disposed waste. Using these estimates, waste generated by different sources may be projected over a ten-year period.The projected waste disposal over the ten-year period, with its corresponding composition, is likewisedetermined. These estimates allow the participants to ascertain the potential “waste diversion” that can betargeted in the ISWM plan. The process of preparing these projections entails the use of extrapolation and population projectiontechniques. The step-by-step procedure used in EcoGov LGUs will be demonstrated and participants willbe guided in preparing the extrapolation and projections under varying assumptions of population andeconomic growth, collection coverage and rural waste generation. The projections represent a “no interventioncase,” i.e., it shows what would be the waste generation and disposal trends in the LGU if current behaviorscontinue. The effects of SWM interventions are derived in a subsequent module. This sub-module culminates in a roundtable discussion where the situational analysis, including theirimplications to SWM, will be presented to the ESWM Board and key stakeholders.Expected Sub-module Outputs Outputs include a packaged database in Excel plus a set of tables containing current (baseline) andprojected data on waste generation and disposal. Part of the output (in a separate data file) would be theprocessed survey data. The workshop part may be completed in four days. This time allocation assumes that data entry isproperly done and that the data are reasonably “clean.” The roundtable discussion may be held during aESWM Board meeting.9 An statistical tool used for determining the range and distribution of the data.28 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Sub-module Approach This activity is designed only for a small group as it requires intensive coaching and hands-on tutorialthus it is designed mainly for a small group. At least one member of the TWG should be familiar with theLGU’s population data and development/land use plan. The activity entails computer work, particularly useof Excel, so it is necessary that at least one from the group knows this program. For this session, computerswill be made available to the participants so they can complete the expected output. The activity can be designed for a group of three to four LGUs. Thiswill maximize the time of the resource person. The data problems differ Due diligenceacross LGUs. Letting several LGUs work together will allow them toappreciate the range of problems that will be encountered in developing a The need to practice dueSWM database. diligence in data analysis is emphasized as participants are The coaching/tutorial will start with data cleaning, using mainly scatter asked not only to review the datadiagrams and trend analysis. It is important that all inconsistencies and for errors, but also to addresserrors are addressed before the LGU start processing their SWM data. these errors and other dataParticipants will then be provided with some orientation on the structure inconsistencies.of the database and on important spreadsheet operations that will beused. They will be guided in preparing population projections and wastegeneration extrapolations and projections. At this stage, it is critical that the assumptions and methodsused are documented. The assumptions made on population growth, economic development, urbanization,rural waste generation should be based on data from NSO and LGU plans. The Excel database allows for the automatic generation of the summary tables. Once the data arecleaned and all the agreed assumptions are entered into the database, the computations are done by thecomputer. It is important that the participants understand the computation process and logic and not bedependent solely on the computer. Enough time shall be allotted for the interpretation of the results. For the SWM awareness and practices survey, the participants will be guided in developing thespreadsheet to tally the responses to specific questions in the key informant interviews and for recordingand compiling qualitative responses during the FGDs. To complete the expected output of this module (situational analysis), the TWG may organize a shortworkshop before the presentation to the ESWM Board. The whole TWG should discuss the data generatedfrom primary and secondary sources, particularly the waste characterization data, and analyze theimplications of the gathered information for planning. The waste characterization data can be related to theresults of SWM awareness and practices survey. Based on their analysis, they can decide on the highlightsthat will be presented to the Board. The EcoGov team or a service provider shall extend technical assistanceduring this activity.Participants Only a sub-group of the TWG may participate in this workshop as this activity requires a small group.At least one LGU staff, familiar with the Excel program, should be involved for data encoding. The ISWM Training Guide 29
    • Module 4 Study Tour Module Coverage This sub-module aims to facilitate the Board and TWG members’ learning process and broaden theirinsights on SWM by exposing them to actual SWM experiences. During the study tour, participants areexpected to interact with LGUs that are more advanced in their SWM practices, and in the process, get toobserve working models, learn their pros and cons, be able to assess their applicability in their own locality.The learning from this activity will be useful inputs to the succeeding module where they will choose theiroptions in the actual formulation of their strategies and interventions. The study tour serves as a welcome break as the previous and succeeding modules involve intensivework. The study tour usually covers several sites and is completed within a week. The number of sites visitedand the mix of practices and technologies that will be observed are determined by the LGU based on thepriority concerns that come out from the situational analysis. Availability of LGU resources to support thetravel costs of the participants is a major factor in determining the number of sites to be visited.10Expected Module Output Output of this activity is a documentation of the exposure trip with a synthesis of lessons learned. Partof the design of the activity is the conduct of feedback and evaluation sessions where participants discusstheir observations and learning with local stakeholders. These are documented and synthesized for use inModule 5. Module Approach This module requires at least one month of preparatory work. The TWG and the Board holds a jointmeeting to agree on selection criteria and priority areas to be observed (such as practices, technologies,SWM operations) during the study tour. They then pick out possible study tour sites from a list of madeavailable to them by the EcoGov team. The participants, who may not include all members of the Board andTWG, then agree on the sites and arrangements are then made with the host LGUs. Preparations are alsomade to meet the logistic requirements (for air and land travel, board and lodging). The list of sites visited by EcoGov-assisted LGUs is found in Annex 4A. A sample documentation ofthe study tour is found in Annex B4.10 The Project is restricted to use USAID grant to pay for the travel expenses (e.g., fare) of government employees.30 The ISWM Training Guide
    • The EcoGov Project usually hires or provides a studytour coordinator and a documenter tasked to: Importance of study tours a) Undertake all the necessary preparations (i.e., Study tours can really enhance the finalize itinerary, set appointments with host LGUs, learning process. Tacurong City realized arrange flights/land travel, reserve hotels, others); its value in preparing the LGU’s ISWM b) Accompany the participants and ensure smooth plan that it decided to send all its conduct and proper documentation (including photo- barangay captains to visit sites to give documentation) of the study tour; them the opportunity to learn SWM c) Facilitate and document sharing of experiences experiences straight from those who have between participants and host LGUs; and gone through the whole process. d) Facilitate and document a daily sharing session or FGDs to process the inputs gathered from sites visited and the group’s learning.Participants Ideally, all members of the Board and the TWG should participate in the study. However, the number ofparticipants usually depends on the LGU’s ability to finance the travel expenses. Study tours may beorganized in batches, so that more participants will benefit from the exposure. Or to cover more ground, theparticipants may be split and each sub-group will have a separate itinerary. Again, this will depend onavailable resources. After the study tour of its city officials, Tacurong City eventually decided to send alltheir barangay captains on a similar study tour, recognizing the value of it in enhancing learning.

    • Module 5 Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) Plan FormulationW ith the completion of the data analysis and projections as well Good governance practices in as the exposure trip, the TWG and plan formulation the ESWM Board are now ready tostart the preparation of the 10-year ISWM plan.

The Accountability - The ISWM plan shall specify persons/ SWOT analysis and the problem tree groups that are accountable for specific ISWM activities and analysis are some of the tools that can decisions. be used to establish the vision, mission, objectives and targets of the ISWM plan of the LGU. Once the direction is clear, a simple options analysis will be used to guide the LGU in developing broad strategies for the formulation of the ISWM plan components and to lay down the wastestream flow interventions from the waste sources to the disposal. Sub-Module 5B. Formulation of the Engineering Component. Guided by the wastestream flow intervention options as well as the mandatory requirements of the Law, specific engineering options are identified and evaluated in each functional element of the ISWM-waste reduction and minimization at source, collection transport/transfer, materials recovery and processing, and disposal management. This will finally result in the identification of specific activities and cost items relevant to the engineering component.11 This outline differs from that used by the ADB Team that prepared the SWM plan for Metro Manila; but contains most, if not all, the recommended elements.32 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Sub-Module 5C. Formulation of the Policy Component - This will look into the policy and ordinance requirements of the Integrating options analysis plan, based on RA 9003 and its IRR. With an analysis of existing policies and ordinances and the recommended interventions This guide integrates options as bases, the LGU will be able to develop its priority policy analysis into the design of the support agenda and work out an effective enforcement strategy engineering component as it requires for SWM. the biggest investment and there are so many management alternatives and Sub-Module 5D. Formulation of the IEC Component - This technologies that could be adopted. will identify the priority IEC activities required to increase SWM awareness and support efforts on waste reduction and segregation at source. The LGU gets guidance in developing an IEC program that can be initiated immediately, even prior to plan legitimization. Sub-Module 5E. Management and Financing Arrangements - This will define how to manage the SWM program and how to monitor and evaluate the SWM performance of the LGU. There will be a detailed analysis of annual costs (capital and operating costs) and projected revenues, used as basis for formulating the financial plan. The financial plan will look at both internal and external sources of funding. In the past, the EcoGov Team introduced options analysis as a separate module before starting anyplanning activity. This training guide integrates the options analysis into the design of the engineeringcomponent. It is deemed appropriate that options analysis focus on the engineering component as it hasthe biggest investment requirement and there are a number of alternative management strategies andtechnologies that could be adopted. The inclusion of Sub-Module 5D as a separate module aims to address the difficulties encountered bythe LGUs in developing sections of the plan dealing with organizational, financing and other implementationarrangements. It increasingly became apparent that LGUs needed inputs on management and financingarrangements and these could be better provided through a formal training session rather than throughinformal coaching and mentoring. This sub-module was developed and first introduced during the SWMCertificate Training conducted by EcoGov held in Davao City and Cebu City (for LSPs like DENR). TheEcoGov SWM Team recommends that this be included in the SWM modules in future training. Considering that each sub-module will tackle a specialized subject matter (engineering, policy andordinances, communications planning, and organization and financing), the mix of participants to the sub-modules will differ. Each sub-module identifies the preferred participants and will have different timeframesto complete. These timeframes exclude the post-workshop activities that the LGUs shall complete beforeproceeding to the next sub-module. EcoGov specialists (i.e., SWM Specialist, Resource Economist, Legal Specialist and IEC Specialist)led the conduct of these sub-modules in the EcoGov LGUs. The Project hired local service providers (LSPs)to facilitate the workshops and document the outputs12. The assisting professionals (APs) were tasked tointegrate the module outputs and draft the ISWM plans. The EcoGov national SWM specialist did the finalreview of the draft plans to ensure quality.1312 To some extent, certain policy component workshops in the Visayas were led by a lawyer who was hired as an LSP.13 In the future, EcoGov regional specialists shall assume more quality control responsibilities. The ISWM Training Guide 33
    • Expected Module Output The output of this module will be a draft 10-year ISWM plan. The LGU and the EcoGov Team may need2-3 months to consolidate all the plan inputs (such as outputs from the various sub-modules and activities)and complete the draft plan. The TWG may consider holding writeshops for the drafting of the plan document.The identification of priority activities and the budgetary requirements for Year 1 (or Years 1 and 2) can beprepared during these writeshop. Upon completion of the ISWM draft plan, the TWG will then prepare for the plan’s legitimization, whichincludes the review of the plan by the ESWM Board, conduct of a series of public hearings, review of theplan by the Municipal/City Development Council (M/CDC) and final review and approval of the plan by theSanguniang Bayan/Panlungsod (SB/SP). Sub-Module 5A. Visioning, Target Setting, and Options AnalysisSub-Coverage The objectives of this sub-module are to: Visioning a) Generate consensus on the vision, mission and Visioning is having a mental picture of the goals for SWM; desired future state that one wants to achieve b) Agree on key targets for the 10-year period; and within a specified period of time (e.g., in 10 years’ c) Identify and evaluate options for the four SWM time). Vision writing requires hindsight (what functional elements, and choose the preferred lessons have you learned which you can use in options. facing anticipated challenges?), hindsight (what policies or practices do we expect to happen?) and The vision, mission and goals will be based on an an appreciation of current realities that areanalysis of the LGU’s current SWM situation and mandate. expected to impact future actions.The targets will consider both the mandatory provisions ofRA 9003 and its IRR and the LGU’s ability to comply with A clear vision provides a clear directionthem. The targets should include the target percent which, when shared, allows individuals to find theirreduction in the waste stream resulting from reduction at own roles in the organization and in the largersource, recycling and composting and the compliance to society of which they are a part.the deadlines for disposal facilities. As mentioned earlier, the SWM process has fourstages: segregation and waste reduction at source,collection and transport, materials recovery andprocessing, and disposal management. Options in eachstage will be identified with the use of guide questions.Options, in terms of technology, scale of operations, IEC,policy and enforcement and/or management arrangementswill be identified and analyzed using multi-criteria analysis(i.e., based on practical considerations and a mix ofeconomic/financial, environmental, political, and socialcriteria). The chosen option for each stage will then be translated into specific activities and cost items ofthe plan components. With these, the LGUs can eventually estimate the total 10-year investment andoperating budget requirements of each component.34 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Expected Sub-Module Outputs Final outputs of the sub-module will consist of: a) statements of vision, mission and goals; b) specifictargets (with verifiable results and timeframe) for the 10-year period which will serve as the LGU’s keyperformance milestones; and c) detailed description of the chosen options for the plan components. A three-day workshop may be required to complete the above-listed outputs. The TWG should be givenmore time after the completion of the workshop to review and finalize the outputs . Sub-Module Approach The sub-module will have several parts. The first part is on visioning and target setting. This will startwith the presentation of the highlights of the situational analysis. Short inputs will be provided on visioning(why is it important, how to formulate vision statements, etc.) before the participants are guided in craftingtheir vision and mission for SWM. The SWOT analysis will be used to identify major SWM issues andconcerns of the LGU. The SWM database and the learnings from the study tour are used as inputs andreferences in clarifying the issues and concerns. From these, broad strategies which collectively will makeup the mission leading to the vision will be generated, discussed and agreed upon by the participants toaddress these issues and concerns. These strategies will hopefully bring to reality the vision on SWM inthe LGU. On the options analysis part of this sub-module, it will start by orienting the participants on the minimumlegal requirements for SWM activities and the possible SWM options which may be considered for SWMstages. Incentives, including user fees, which may be implemented are, also, discussed to the group.Then, the discussion moves on to explaining quantitative and qualitative criteria which will be used in theanalysis. Indicators included are costs, revenues, social acceptability, environmental impacts, politicalimplications and other factors which may be suggested by the group. It is important that the participantsare given the chance to suggest evaluation criteria which are relevant to the LGU’s SWM present status. The participants are, then, divided into groups to identify options for source reduction, collection andtransport, disposal and program management stages. Activities and pathways for each SWM alternativeare listed by the group. Then, the group moves on to listing the pros, cons, strengths, weaknesses, threatsand opportunities of each option. A blank sheet is given to the groups for easy facilitation of the discussion.Options are, then, compared with evaluative criteria discussed in the early session of the workshop. Rankingof options based on established criteria is the next critical part of the process. The preferred option is, then,selected. A plenary session is suggested after the two stages have been completed to finalize the preferredoptions in each stage of the ISWM. The overall result of the activity is then packaged as input to theformulation of the different plan components.Participants Participants will include members of the TWG and ESWM Board. The participation of various stakeholdersis necessary in this sub-module as the vision, mission and targets are set and the options in each stageof the ISWM are chosen by consensus. It is critical that key LGU staff currently involved in solid wastemanagement participate in the process. The ISWM Training Guide 35
    • Sub-Module 5B. Formulation of the Engineering Component Sub-Module Coverage This component is the backbone or hardware of the plan. This requires the largest investment amongthe components of the plan and would have the most significant environmental impact, thus, it is criticalthat this component be backed up by a thorough analysis of the generated SWM data and evaluation ofoptions. The engineering component of the ISWM program of an LGU is one of the most essential elementscrucial to achieving the objectives of the Plan. It outlines the Plan’s strategies in complying with the keyrequirements of RA 9003 on SWM activities- segregation and reduction-at-source, collection and transport,materials recovery and processing and disposal. The sub-module on engineering component primarily introduces the participants to the engineeringelements of an ISWM program in line with the provisions of RA 9003 to enable them to draft the engineeringcomponent of the ISWM Plan based on the preferred options identified, evaluated and approved by theESWM Board of the LGU. Specifically, the module provides a venue for discussion of the following variables:1) design of segregators and receptacles, distribution/location of receptacles, temporary storage, compostingat source and common composting facilities for segregation and reduction at source stage; 2) collectionschedule per type of waste material, required collection trucks and crew, routing and maintenance ofcollection fleet for collection and transport stage; 3) location of MRF, functions and design of MRF, includingcapacity and, equipment requirements for material recovery stage; and 4) closure and rehabilitation of opendumpsite, conversion/establishment of controlled dump site, equipment requirements for controlled dumpsite, location of sanitary landfill (SLF) and equipment requirements of SLF for disposal stage. It is important to mention that the outputs of the module are dependent on the SWM database gatheredduring the waste assessment stage. These information will be the bases for the design of proposed facilities,upgrading of existing ones and procurement of equipment. Also, this module will detail the related-engineeringinvestment and operating costs necessary for the implementation of the Plan. Thus, the following materialsare made available before the conduct of the module workshop: completed SWM data analysis and projections;write-up for the preferred option for each stage of the SWM process; and materials, notes, photos of SWMfacilities visited during the LGU’s study tour. To help participants develop the engineering component, they will be provided with a guide or checklist,which points out the critical engineering elements in each of the four stages or functional elements of theSWM process: segregation and reduction at source, waste collection and transfer, materials recovery, anddisposal management. With such a guide/checklist and the results of the waste assessment, participantsshould be able to help LGUs sequentially draw up and evaluate alternative strategies (primarily in terms ofcosts, environmental impacts and management requirements), choose the preferred option, and come upwith the proposed activities/interventions and major cost items for the plan period. Examples of SWMtechnologies that have been proposed and/or adopted by various LGUs will be cited to help in the identificationand evaluation of options and cost estimation. The participants will also be guided in projecting its waste flow over the 10-year plan period given theirselected strategies for segregation and reduction at source, waste collection and transfer, materials recovery,and disposal management. This will be part of an exercise on the estimation of the useful life of a sanitarylandfill.Expected Sub-Module Output The output of this module will be the draft engineering component f the 10-year ISWM plan. This willinclude sketches and drawings of facilities, maps for collection and transport and disposal sites and othertechnical specifications.36 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Participants The participants to the four-day sub-module should come from the engineering groups of the TWG andESWM Board, including the Chairman of the SB Environment Committee, Planning Officer, ENRO, ENGG,GSO and an encoder.Sub-Module Approach Segregation and Reduction-at-Source Focus group discussions (FGDs) are conducted for the identification of engineering elements at eachstage. The process starts with details of segregation and reduction-at-source techniques. Areas which willbe provided receptacles (prior to collection) for recyclables, residuals and special wastes are listed. Thesemay include households, establishments, institutions, public facilities and barangays outside the corecollection area. Then, based on the data on generation of recyclables by major sources and on wastedisposal practices, the group decides on the design specifications of receptacles which will make segregationof recyclables by households, establishments/institutions and general public easier. To help the group,different types of receptacles are presented. After selecting the design of the receptacles, the number ofreceptacles to be provided by the LGU and their location are discussed using the waste assessment datain identifying major generators of recyclables. The group, then, focuses on appropriate design of temporary storage of residuals prior to collection. Itis important that the data on volume of residual wastes generated by individual households in betweencollection periods are available for estimating the capacity of the storage containers. It should be noted thatthe storage needs of urban and rural barangays differ. The same variables are discussed for residuals ofestablishments and institutions. Alternative ways of safely handling/storing special wastes prior to collection by LGU are then listed.The group uses the waste assessment data for the types and volume of special wastes generated byhouseholds and establishments to determine the corresponding type and capacity of receptacles. Theneed to provide common containers for special wastes in core collection area and other barangays is alsoassessed. If the group decides to provide common containers for special wastes in these areas, appropriatedesign and their locations are studied. The group, then, agrees on whether or not the LGU is going to promote composting at source for thebiodegradable wastes. Data on biodegradable waste generation and their projections are used for discussionand decision making by the group. The group, also, evaluates the practicality of installing compostingfacility per barangay. The pros and cons of backyard composting by individual households are also considered. Collection and Transport Collection and Transport Managed by Municipal/City LGU The group first discusses the present coverage of the LGU core collection area using the a base mapas reference. Collection coverage areas in the next 5 to 10 years are then projected. It is suggested thatchanges in core collection area as well as the assumed increase in households and establishments beshown on the map. The types of waste which will be collected by the LGU are, then, discussed. Wastes tobe collected from households, establishments, public market and other public facilities within the corecollection area are, also, projected. The group proceeds on discussing the frequency of collecting biodegradables, recyclables, residualwastes and special wastes. Specifically, the group decides on the preferred frequency of collection forhouseholds, establishments, public market and other public facilities within the collection area; and, collection The ISWM Training Guide 37
    • of residual and special waste from barangays outside the core collection area. The group is guided bystarting with the ideal collection frequency and assisting the participants in making adjustments afterdetermining the cost of collection operations and facilities. After arriving at a consensus on the frequencyof collection, the group tackles the appropriate schedule for collecting garbage from various sources in thecore collection area. It is important that the group consider the need for separate schedules for the collectionof different types of wastes. After deciding on the scope of the LGU’s collection service, the group evaluates the present collectionand transport capacity of the LGU in terms of vehicles, associated facilities and personnel. Inventory ofavailable trucks, their capacity, year procured, number of crew per truck and their present condition areconducted. After determining these existing resources, the appropriate capacity to be maintained by theLGU for sustainable service is determined. The group, then moves on to identifying the following: type,number and period of additional/replacement of collection trucks; ideal number of collection crew; necessaryadditional capacity for collection of residual and special wastes from other selected barangays; and, practicesto be adopted especially for the facilities and for the regular maintenance of collection fleet of the LGU. Collection routing is then discussed. The participants will be introduced and trained on heuristicrouting to maximize use of collection resources and to minimize road accidents.The group also evaluatesthe need to do a time and motion study with the aim of extending the collection coverage without necessarilyincreasing the number of vehicles and size of crew. Lastly, options on institutional arrangements and private participation are considered. The group mayconsider allowing private contractors to collect wastes in excess of the LGU’s capacity or in areas wherethe LGU may find difficulty in providing the service. It will also deliberate on the feasibility of allowingestablishments and private housing associations to contract private collectors for hauling of their respectivewastes. When the group decides that the LGU should engage in such arrangements, adjustments shouldbe done on the target collection capacity of the LGU. Barangay-Based Collection The discussion starts with the identification of the types of wastes which will be collected by thebarangays. Barangays which will have or can afford to have their own collection system in the next 2 to 5years are identified and listed and these are based on the projected waste generation and population. Incase of the inability of the LGU to served all barangays, the group decides on priority barangays (normallyadjacent to the collection areas) which will be served by the LGU for collecting the residual and specialwastes. At this stage, options of barangays for the collection of biodegradable and recyclable wastes, arebased on the volume of the present and projected waste generation. Collection methods are correspondinglydiscussed among the group members. The types of assistance which can be made available by the LGU toenable barangays to establish their own collection scheme and facilities for biodegradables and recyclablesare consequently identified Finally, the manner of transporting the residual and special wastes from the barangays to the disposalsite is discussed and decided on by the group. Materials Recovery and Processing Municipal/City Material Recovery Facility In case the LGU plans to establish a municipal/city MRF, the group discusses and specifies thefunctions/components of the proposed MRF. The relationship of the barangay MRF with the municipal/cityMRF is defined.38 The ISWM Training Guide
    • The group then resolves the following concerns: type of recyclables which will be recovered by theMRF; sources of recyclable materials; expected volume of recyclable materials which will be brought to theMRF; start of operations; assumed recovery efficiency through time; volume which will have to be disposedat the disposal facility; and percentage projected diversion through the MRF. Discussion will also include the type of sorting process which will be used , equipment required, periodof procurement of sorting materials and equipment, and the number and training of workers for the sortingjobs. The procurement of equipment, establishment of facilities and the hiring of personnel should follow thephasing of the MRF operations. When the preferred option includes composting, the group identifies sources of compostable materials,expected volume of compostable materials which will be brought to the MRF, start of composting operations,assumed production and percentage of projected diversion through composting in MRF. The group, then, defines the composting technology which will be used, facilities and equipment to beestablished and procured and, number of workers to be hired. Again, the procurement/establishment/hiringwill be guided by the phasing of composting operations. Possible locations of the MRF are discussed aided by the base map of the LGU. Assessment of thesuitability of the MRF site, access roads and necessary permits are considered. A sketch of the MRFstructure is a helpful tool in the discussion to come up with decisions. Decisions can include assigning ateam to develop the Notice to Proceed document for the MRF and another team to do the feasibility studyof the facility. On the organizational set-up of the MRF, the management to be provided by the municipal/city to theMRF is discussed. This includes identifying the number of personnel needed and the LGU’s willingness toaccept participation of the private sector in the operations and management of MRF. Another important consideration in the deliberation is the LGU’s plan on existing junk shops. The groupshould decide whether or not these will be integrated into the MRF network of the LGU. An option that canalso be explored is the organization of these junk shops into a formal group to improve their viability andstability, thereby, complementing the LGU’s efforts on achieving the diversion objectives. Barangay MRFs Discussion on establishing barangay MRFs begins with the process of prioritizing barangays and/orcluster of barangays for the establishment of MRFs. On clustering of barangays, consensus on the clusteringmechanism is decided. This should be definite and clear. Other variables which are to be discussed in bythe group include MRF’s size, its location and design. A design of a typical barangay MRF is shown to thegroup to facilitate finalization of the MRF. The marketing structure which will be implemented in transporting the MRF products to the municipal/city buyers is also defined by the group. Transport and access facilities necessary for marketing the MRFproducts are, also given attention in the discussion and decision making by consensus. Disposal An important engineering component of any ISWM Plan is the disposal facility. The limited resourcesand lack of political will of LGU officials have hindered most of the LGUs in complying with the requirementof RA 9003 on disposal - conversion of eligible open dump into controlled dump and the conversion ofcontrolled dump into a sanitary landfill. It is therefore indispensable for the LGUs to plan for the closure ofopen dumps and the conversion of qualified opendumps to controlled dumps as transition disposal facilitytowards sanitary landfill. The significant consideration in deciding for the closure and rehabilitation plan of The ISWM Training Guide 39
    • an open dump is its sustainability for conversion to a controlled dump.Thus, it is necessary that the groupcarefully go through an assessment phase guided by the hydrogeological findings of the DENR-MGB if thesite is complying with the requirements for conversion to controlled dump. The other considerations will bethe remaining capacity within the two years that the controlled dump will be allowed to operate. If the opendump site fails the criteria for conversion, then it is a must for the LGU to look for alternative sites guided bythe recommendations of the MGB. Additional studies and activities to be conducted in the preparation for a controlled dump and/or landfilldisposal facilities and the methods which will be used in these studies and activities are also determined,discussed and decided by the group. Key considerations are the volumes and projections of residualwastes to be disposed, useful life of the SLF, leachate management, gas emission management andenvironmental monitoring and evaluation. Another area for discussion is capacity-building needed by the LGU to effectively and efficiently operateand manage a controlled dump/sanitary landfill facility. The persons and/or group who will be responsible foroperating and managing the controlled dump/landfill facilities are also defined in the discussion. An issuerelating to the institutional arrangement is the LGU’s plan to allow private entities to partner with the LGU inoperating the facility and the possibility of sharing the use of SLF with other LGUs through a clusteringmechanism that is mutually agreed upon by the cluster members. Equally significant to be discussed is the financing of sanitary landfill-related investment and operatingcosts since analysis of SWM costs reveals that disposal costs, especially on the development of a sanitarylandfill are, usually, the highest. It is important at this stage for the LGU to be able to identify possiblefinancial sources for the project and possible SWM revenues to partially offset the costs. Important inputs to the discussion are the volume of residual waste generated and its projections in thenext 5 to 10 years. Lastly, the group considers the incorporation of a toxic and hazardous waste (THW) facility within thecontrolled dump or sanitary landfill. A designated zone is identified in an approved site and the options forTHW facility for storage/disposal of special wastes are provided and discussed by a technical resourceperson for the TWG to decide which would be the preferred option, taking into consideration the additionalcost of developing and establishing a THW facility. With the engineering plan established, the engineering group moves on to identify activities to beundertaken for the implementation of the plan. Schedule of activities is drawn and shown in a Gantt chart.The group is also assisted in detailing the activities for Year 1 as these will be the inputs for Year 1 actionplan. Cost items for the engineering component of the plan are identified and estimated by the group. Thecosts are categorized into past and present cost incurrences. For capital investments, the group indicatesthe useful life of each item. Inventory of future costs, e.g., additional truck or replacement truck, buildingextension and estimation of useful life of existing equipment or facility are done by the group. It is importantto note that annual costs should be accounted for recurring costs. On the other hand, investment costs arereflected only on the years that these costs are incurred. These inputs are provided for the overall costanalysis of the 10-year ISWM plan.40 The ISWM Training Guide

    • Sub-Module 5C. Formulation of Policy Support ComponentSub-module Coverage This sub-module emphasizes the necessity to have a strong policy support for the implementation ofthe LGU ISWM plans to ensure their compliance with the requirements of the law (such as RA 9003 and theLocal Government Code). This component identifies the specific actions in the plan needed to be embodiedin an ordinance(s) and define the corresponding enforcement mechanisms that must be put in place.Policies/ordinances should incorporate good governance principles, making sure that TAP practices identifiedand observed during the planning stage are carried through to the implementation phase. This module consists of three major activities: 1) Brief input lecture on the objectives and scope/content of the policy support component and a walk-through of a policy analysis guide (See Policy Analysis Guide, Annex 5B) developed by EcoGov. 2) Hands-on experience in policy analysis. A sample ISWM Plan will be analyzed to determine the LGU’s policy requirements. 3) Ordinance review. A sample ordinance will be reviewed to determine how such can be made compliant with TAP principles and the requirements of the relevant laws. Considering that many LGUs still have ordinances passedbefore the issuance of RA 9003, this activity allows them to review TAP-enhanced ordinancesthese ordinances and recommend how these may be updatedand made compliant with the law. They will likewise have hands- Participants will have hands-onon experience in enhancing these ordinances by integrating into experience in enhancing local ordinancesthem provisions on transparency, accountability and participatory by integrating into them provisions ondecision-making or TAP.

Part of the output would be analysis of thecurrent ordinances of the LGU, the list of the priority ordinances that will have to be enacted to supportimplementation of the LGU ISWM plan, the proposed contents of the ordinances, including provisions ontransparency, accountability and participatory decision-making; and the identified enforcement mechanisms. Upon the completion of this activity, the LGU can initiate the preparation/revision of priority ordinancesor the formulation of a comprehensive SWM ordinance so that these may be issued as soon as the ISWMplan is legitimized. The workshop for developing the component is programmed for two days. There is a requirement for apre-training activity and post-training activity (further development/refinement of the content of the component),thus, time needed for this activity may be longer. The ISWM Training Guide 43
    • Sub-module Approach The activity will require a short lecture and a series of workshops. The lecture will define the scope and provide the conceptual and legal framework for formulating the policy support component. It will provide a review of the concepts of transparency, accountability and participatory decision-making. The workshops will allow the participants to systematically analyze policies and ordinances, and work out the LGU’s SWM policy agenda and enforcement mechanism, using tools and formats developed by the EcoGov Project. Included in the lecture outline is a discussion of the ordinance formulation process, which may lead to the addition of a workshop for the actual formulation of one or two priority ordinances. It is understood that prior to the conduct of this activity, the TWG has done, as a pre-workshop activity, a compilation and preliminary review of all SWM related ordinances and policies. This should have the garbage fee system, usually included in many LGUs’ local revenue code. During the workshop, the analysis will be done in two stages. The first stage of analysis will look at gaps in existing policies/ordinances based on RA 9003 and its IRR and good governance practices. In making the analysis, the participants will make use of a guide and summary form (See Annex 5B) developed by the EcoGov Project for this purpose. The second stage of analysis will examine the policy/ordinance support requirements of the ISWM plan and match these with what exists. The key strategies and activities for each SWM stage are reviewed and the ordinances, which will support the establishment and management of these facilities, are identified. Taking into account the requirements of the plan and the applicable laws, the contents or necessary provisions of each proposed ordinance are determined and discussed, including the desirable TAP practices. The formulation of the policy support component Key Elements of the will take off from the results of the two analyses. The Policy Support Component participants will have to agree on the priority policy/ ordinance agenda. Then, with the use of guidea.

    • Sub-Module 5D. Formulation of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Component Sub-module Coverage This two-day activity aims to facilitate the development of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) activities that will support the ISWM strategies and interventions identified in the SWM plan, including policy support. This activity provides a review of the communication Promoting TAP process and concepts. It presents the different communication approaches commonly used in local IEC/ IEC plays a crucial role in promoting advocacy work and explains the role of communication intransparency, accountability and participatory promoting behavior change, networking and constituencydecision-making.

Also, they become more versus required) so that necessary adjustments in IECmotivated in making plan implementers strategies could be made to come up with a realistic andaccountable for their actions. doable communication plan. In addition, it shares some knowledge and skills with participants on the development of creative IEC materials to help them start their IEC program. Like policy support, IEC is an “immediate doable” activity that can be implemented while the plan is undergoing refinement and legitimization. Expected Sub-module Output The expected output of the module is a draft communication plan, which will be one of the major components of the ISWM plan. It will have the following elements: Objectives (which will be based on the assessment of issues) by target audience; key messages; channel/media; responsibility centers; and estimated costs. Another output would be a one-year action plan that spells out the immediate next steps that the TWG can pursue as part of initial IEC implementation activities. The action plan will provide details on the Year 1 priorities of the overall communications plan. Sub-module Approach The module uses a combination of lectures and group exercises and workshops. The lectures will familiarize the participants on the conceptual framework, technical consideration and analytical tools for planning IEC activities. Learning exercises (e.g., message relay, non-verbal communication, etc.) will be integrated into some topics in the lecture. Participants are provided the venue to apply knowledge gained from the lectures through the workshops. Four major workshops may be held: the situational analysis and evaluation of recent/current IEC activities; development of the communication matrix; development of IEC materials; and action planning. 48 The ISWM Training Guide
    • The first can be organized as a series of exercises, where the participants will be first be guided inputting together information gathered from various sources to come up with a situational analysis. This,however, need not be done in detail or discussed very thoroughly if participants have already been involvedin the assessment stage (Module3). All they need is a list of issues and concerns (on SWM awareness,knowledge, practices, etc.) identified earlier. These are important as the participants will have to developtheir communication objectives using these issues as bases. Thus, it is imperative that participants bringthese data with them to the training. If they have this issues already identified, what can be done is to go ahead with the evaluation of recent/current IEC initiatives. What were the objectives of the activities? Who were the specific target audience?What were the specific messages? Who endorsed the messages? What channels were used? Did itwork? If it did not work, why? These are some of the questions that have to be asked during the evaluation. Then, they can progressively complete the communication matrix found in Annex 5C. The third workshopcan be devoted to the development of a simple print material, such as a poster, leaflet or flyer. This activitymay use local materials or computer software (e.g., PowerPoint, PageMaker), depending on the availableresources of the LGU. The last workshop will produce the IEC action plan, for implementation within the firstyear of the project. The output of the third workshop (development of IEC materials) can be used as input tothe work plan (e.g., pretesting/production of IEC materials developed during the communication training). To reiterate, it is important that participants be armed with relevant data gathered prior to the IECactivity. These will be on the baseline waste generation and disposal data (which can be derived from theseven-day waste characterization), current SWM programs (including IEC programs) and practices/behavior(which can be taken from the FGDs, surveys, observations, consultations), and planned SWM activities(derived from the engineering and policy workshops). Specifically, the following data should be made availableor gathered before the training: 1) Analysis of major waste generators and potential groups, which can be tapped to do communication work; 2) Assessment of current SWM knowledge, awareness and practices at least within the collection/ urban center of the LGU; 3) Inventory of currently available IEC materials and important information sources/channels; 4) Summary of SWM strategies and activities for each SWM stage (results of Sub-Module 5A); and 5) Proposed policy agenda (results of Sub-Module 5B). Using the available data, the participants are tasked to identify key communication issues per stage ofthe SWM process (i.e., reduction and segregation at source, collection and transport, materials recoveryand disposal management). Based on these issues, strategic communication objectives are developed forthe identified target audience per SWM stage. Activities per objective are identified and specific messagesare formulated to suit the needs of the target audience. Impacts of the proposed implementation schemeare also, discussed. The module may be conducted in 2 ½ days, but more time may be needed for pre-workshop requirementsand possible post-training activity to finalize the outputs.Participants The participants in this activity are selected members of the TWG, other LGU and DENR staff responsiblefor IEC support activities, and members of local organizations (POs and NGOs), which can be tapped forIEC. If the LGU has organized a Speakers’ Bureau, then its members should be asked to participate in thisactivity. The resource person must have had sufficient experience in formulating communication plans, andin developing and implementing community IEC activities. The ISWM Training Guide 49

Objectives of the Activity Enhance participants’ knowledge on important communication concepts and approaches and equip them with necessary analytical tools for planning and designing communication activities Guide TWGs in the systematic development of a communication planII. Outputs Draft communications plan to support ISWM strategies/interventions Action plan for Year 1 implementationIII. Information Users and Information Uses. SWM messages are communicated to: Waste generators (such as households, establishments, institutions) to promote certain behaviors “friendly” to SWM efforts and build a constituency for effective SWM Decision- and policy-makers (such as LGU leaders and the ESWM Board) to get their support (in coming up with favorable policies, budget allocation for SWM implementation) Influencers (such as the media, schools, religious/civic groups) to put pressure on the LGU leaders to do their job, and to waste generators to change SWM practicesIV. The ‘e’ Process – The process one has to go through when planning/doing IEC activities: Analysis - provides for the analysis and prioritization of issues/problems that IEC Implement should address, identifies and analyzes the (Pretest, monitor, etc.) target audience as well as determine available and needed IEC resources. Plan Preparation - calls for the development target audience, selection (Message formulation, of communication objectives based on prioritized issues identified; specific message of medium) formulation, medium selection, identification Evaluate Plan of persons responsible and noting down of time frame. (Did it work? Implementation - includes pre-testing (if Why? Why not?) developing an IEC material) or a run-through (if doing an IEC activity such as an orientation) and monitoring of IEC activities. Evaluation – allows for finding out whether an IEC activity worked or didn’t work, why it worked, and why it did not work. Analyze (Audience analysis, problem analysis,V. Different Communication Approaches – resource analysis) Commonly used communication approaches at the local level: IEC, Social Marketing, Development Support Communication, Social Mobilization and Advocacy. Emphasis given on the commonalities of features, stressing that at the local level, it is not really important to remember the right terminology to use; what is important is that you know who you are talking to, you know exactly what to tell them and know the best way to tell it to them.V. Review of Communication Process and Concepts Elements of communication: sender, message, channel, receiver, feedback and feed forward. Feed forward is knowing your audience (which is actually audience analysis) first before communicating with him/her. Suggested Exercise: Message relay or relevant exercise that helps in demonstrating the communication process.50 The ISWM Training Guide
    • VIII. Questions to Ask When Promoting a Product. This, in brief, discusses how to prepare a simple communication plan. What’s the situation? – Emphasizes importance of doing an analysis of the IEC situation (problems, issues, etc.) What is the product? - Identifies the specific idea, tangible object or friendly/ideal behavior that needs to be promoted. Who are the target audience or adopters? - Identifies the target audience, both primary and secondary, of the “product” What’s the profile of your target audience? Reiterates the importance of knowing exactly who your target audience is to be able to formulate a message that fits his/her needs How will the product be positioned? - Discusses the need to immediately grab the attention of the target audience. Reminder: focus on product benefits. What’s the message? – Identifies the specific message or messages. Reminder: make the message simple, specific and clear What channel to use? - Stresses the importance of selecting the right medium to reach the target audience What are your available resources? - Determines available IEC resources (such as manpower, IEC materials, IEC equipment, budget), what else are needed and how to get these. Part of this discussion is knowing your key allies. Who are the “contrabidas?” - Identifies the current or potential “opponents” (in SWM, there may not be too many opponents; the challenge is how to make waste generators change their ways for the better). Suggested Workshop: Situational Analysis and Communication Matrix Preparation (can actually be divided into several exercises such as discussing key findings of the assessment that could be addressed by IEC (for situational analysis), identifying key issues per SWM stage, writing the objectives per target audience per stage, identifying activities and formulating the messages).IX. Ways People Communicate Verbal and Non-Verbal and Inter-Personal Communication (such as group communication like assemblies and one-on-one communication such as meetings with mayors) Commonly Used Media/Materials (such as posters, brochures, billboards, radio/TV plugs, community theater), including tips on use.XI. Designing ‘Sales Kits.’ Briefly discusses how to make an IEC material. Topics include: “Making a map” (planning what to say, who to say it to and how to say it); “Writing the headline” (formulating the central message); Writing the body (writing the text that includes the sub-messages); Other Tricks of the Trade (other tips). Suggested Exercise: Actual development of IEC print material (poster, leaflet, flyer) using local materials or PowerPoint or PageMaker software. The ISWM Training Guide 51
    • Sub-Module 5E. Management and Financing Arrangements Sub-module Coverage This sub-module focuses on two major implementation concerns: 1) Establishment of an SWM organization that will implement the plan and monitor its implementation; and 2) Identifying potential sources of financing for plan implementation. The objective of the sub-module with respect to the first is to define the structure, staffing and activitiesof the organization that will oversee the implementation plan; the various institutional arrangements to elicitgreater stakeholder participation; and the system for monitoring the LGU’s SWM activities. With respect tothe second, the objective is to assess the LGU’s capability to finance plan implementation and to identifythe extent of external financing required over the plan period. It will also look into the development ofincentive systems to encourage private sector participation in SWM. The participants will be guided in formulating the institutional, management and financing arrangementsfor implementing the ISWM plan, taking into account relevant provisions of the Local Government Code andRA 9003. Alternative organizational arrangements currently used by LGUs will be reviewed and assessed.The role of the barangays will be defined as well as those of multi-stakeholder groups that will be involved inIEC, enforcement, M&E, and other SWM activities. The LGU will have to prepare its organizational andstaffing plan, define the accountabilities of the various units, and identify the activities that such organizationwill undertake within the plan period. This sub-module will also emphasize the critical role of M&E in SWM program management and howthis can support the promotion of transparency, accountability and participatory decision-making (TAP).The participants will be guided in developing its results framework and the key indicators for the variousfunctional elements and components of SWM. Discussion on how data will be gathered, tracked, analyzedand disseminated will complete the development of the M&E system. Incentive systems are not usually well understood at the local government level; thus, they are not oftenused as a management tool in development projects. In this sub-module, appreciation of incentives systemswill be enhanced. Participants will learn concepts, definitions, types of incentives, and process of identifyingincentives and incentive mechanisms for SWM. These should allow them to develop the appropriate incentivesystems that will encourage the private sector to participate in SWM. The plan financing aspect will demonstrate the rudiments of cost-revenue analysis, another tool deemeduseful in making decisions regarding the various arrangements for SWM. A cost-revenue analysis (on theconsolidated annual cost and revenue estimates) is used to determine the extent to which SWM operationscan be financed by SWM revenues and the Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA) of the LGU. This analysis willalso provide indications as to the potential financial viability of planned LGU-managed SWM enterprises,such as recycling, composting and sanitary landfill facilities. This analysis will lead the LGU to decide up towhat extent to which it would want to subsidize the program and how much the private sector involvementwould be (i.e., private investments). This part of the sub-module will emphasize the need in ISWM for sustained financing. Variousmechanisms for financing ISWM, both traditional and innovative financing schemes, will be covered in thediscussions.52 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Expected Sub-module Outputs The specific outputs of the sub-module are: a) proposed organizational and staffing plan; b) SWMresults framework and an M&E plan; c) consolidated summary of annual costs and projected revenues; d)cost-revenue analysis of key SWM operations; e) brief write-up on the economic enterprise component ofthe plan; f) proposed incentive systems; and g) financing plan. These outputs compose the various sectionsof Chapters 6 and 7 of the plan outline. That on the economic enterprise component constitutes the lastsection of Chapter 5. The workshop may be completed in three days. The TWG, however, may need at leastone week more, with assistance from EcoGov AP or LSP to complete all the outputs listed above.Sub-module Approach There will be four technical input sessions in this sub-module and each will be followed by guidedgroup/plenary workshops or exercises. The organizational aspects will first be tackled. Following brieftechnical inputs (See Lecture Notes on page 55), the participants will be guided in developing theorganizational and staffing plan by asking them to answer a sequence of guide questions. The participantsmay be organized into smaller groups when addressing some of the questions (e.g., functions of organizationalunits, qualifications of staff). At the end of the session, the participants would have agreed on: 1) Structure of the SWM organization (and its phased development over the plan period); 2) Functions and accountabilities of the various units of the SWM organization; 3) Proposed staffing and qualifications for key positions, plan for staff recruitment and critical training needs; 4) Composition of various multi-sectoral bodies that are proposed to be formed, the criteria for the selection of their members and incentives for their participation; 5) Other LGU units and agencies involved in SWM, with their roles clearly defined; 6) Major activities of the SWM organization over the 10-year period and the corresponding cost requirements; 7) Procurement and contracting arrangements. The second session will focus on M&E arrangements. The lecture (See Lecture Notes, Page 56) willexplain the key M&E concepts that are important for the development of the SWM results framework. Theconcept of indicators will be emphasized and examples of both output and outcome indicators will beprovided. A group exercise may be organized for the discussion of key performance indicators. This will befollowed by a plenary session to generate consensus on the indicators and outline the arrangements forM&E, to include reporting flows, incentives/and sanctions for good/poor performance, and the role of thecivil society and the private sector in M&E. A major subject for discussion would be the conduct of theannual performance assessment with respect to waste diversion, as the reduction of the waste streamserves as a key performance indicator. The succeeding session on incentives will have a theoretical part, which will basically be an orientationon incentives, the different types of incentives that are applicable to ISWM and the steps in developingincentive mechanisms (See Lecture Notes, pages 57-58). The practical part will involve group analysis ofcase study/studies of applications of incentives by LGUs. The analysis will include the evaluation of theeconomic and management impacts of the incentives systems. From the analysis, the participants will beguided in developing the procedures for establishing and institutionalizing SWM incentives and incentivemechanisms. The fourth part will be devoted to the processes involved in cost-revenue analysis: identification andestimation of capital outlay and operating expenses for each ISWM stage, scheduling of investments andoperating costs over the ISWM planning horizon, identification and evaluation of the potentials for revenue The ISWM Training Guide 53
    • generation of implementation activities, estimation of revenues, and comparison of the cost and revenuestreams over time. Participants will be grouped to work on specific ISWM components. Each group willundertake the whole process of cost and revenue estimation, scheduling and analysis. Computers will beprovided to each group. Towards the end of the session, the group outputs will be consolidated to provide the overall cost-revenue picture of the ISWM plan. Part of the exercise at this stage would be the projection of the LGU’sIRA and 20% Development Fund over the plan period and an analysis of the cost requirements vis-à-vis theIRA. From this analysis, the TWG is expected to come up with their conclusions about the potential of theSWM revenues to cover cost of operations and investments, and the financial viability of planned economicenterprises. Based on the analysis of its IRA and the cost-revenue analysis, the LGU will have to makerecommendations with respect to financing plan implementation. The last session will introduce the concept of local development financing. This will include a discussionof traditional and innovative financing schemes, with focus on municipal bonds (See Lecture Notes, pages58-60). Based on the presentation, the participants are encouraged to broaden their options and considersome of the non-traditional financing schemes.Participants Since this sub-module integrates and takes off from the results of previous sub-modules, the participantsshould include key members of those sub-groups involved in other sub-modules – engineering, policy andIEC. It is also important that participants include representatives of civil society groups and private sector;key officers of the LGU units currently involved in SWM; and representatives of the LGU’s finance andadministration, personnel, and planning divisions. It may not be possible for one resource person to cover the topics listed on this sub-module. A team ofresource persons/specialists will have to be tapped. It is important that discussions are focused on theapplication of concepts, analytical tools and frameworks to SWM. A good documentation of the discussionsand agreements is necessary for purposes of writing the draft plan. Critical to the successful conduct of this module is the completion of the outputs of previous sub-modules: drafts of the components, cost items per component and stage, and cost estimates. It will behelpful to also have a copy of the current LGU structure and staffing list to ensure that whatever SWMorganization is proposed will fit well into the current structure.54 The ISWM Training Guide

Relevant Provisions in Local Government Code and RA 9003 and their IRRs Local Government Code and IRR - Creation of Municipal/City ENRO optional - Limitations to LGU staffing (For 1st to 3rd class municipalities and cities; personal services shall not exceed 45% of total annual income; for 4th to lower class municipalities: personal services shall not exceed 55% of total annual income) - Uses/limitations of the 20% Development Fund RA 9003 and IRR - Composition and functions of ESWM Board - Scope of responsibilities of municipal/city LGU - Composition and functions of Barangay SWM Committees - Mandatory requirements (with due dates) - Roles of other national agencies and other sectorsIV. Emerging Organizational Arrangements for SWM Multi-level structure: ESWM for policy formulation, barangay committees for collection of specific types of waste Phased expansion of LGU SWM organization – additional functions taken on as LGU shifts from open dump to controlled dump to sanitary landfill; expansion of SWM concerns from collection to include materials recovery and disposal management; expansion of geographic coverage from poblacion to also cover urbanizing barangays and other rural barangays; from ad hic SWM organization to permanent organization. Phasing must be consistent with plan targets. Linkages within LGU organization – there are other units involved such as fee collection, enforcement, IEC, etc Linkages with external organizations (national government agencies, non-government organizations, private sector, civil society groups, academe, etc) – SWM being a shared responsibilityV. Good Governance Practices SWM organization must be sufficiently staffed, with adequate operating budget Clear functions and accountabilities, clear lines of authority Clear qualification requirements and transparent selection process (for staff and members of multi- sectoral bodies) Clear performance standards, incentives and sanctions Equal employment opportunities for men and womenVI. Guide for Development of Organizational and Management Arrangements What are current organization, staffing and institutional arrangements? What targets and proposals in the ISWM Plan have implications on SWM organization? (Example: when are MRFs to be established? What type of MRF is this? When will controlled dumpsite be established? When will SLF be operational?) The ISWM Training Guide 55

Key M&E Concepts Objectives Hierarchy Results Hierarchy‘II. The SWM Results Framework Goal: Protect environment and conserve resources Protect health of population Outcomes: Reduction of waste stream through recycling, reuse and reduction at sources Reduce leachate seepage Outputs: a) Improved practices: waste segregation by waste generators, recycling/waste recovery, composting, disposal management b) SWM facilities (MRF, controlled dumpsite, SLF, etc) c) Linkages with other sectors, buyers/consolidators, processors, investors InputsIII. Critical M&E Activities Tracking implementation of plan activities and set milestones (e.g., track progress in establishment, operation and closure of controlled dumpsite) Periodic assessment of efficiency and effectiveness of SWM operations/services a) Collection: actual collection coverage vs. planned coverage % population serviced collection truck downtime crew-truck ratio compliance with mandatory segregation b) Materials Recovery: waste materials recovered vs. waste materials received waste materials sold vs. waste materials recovered compost materials produced excess processing/storage capacities equipment downtime c) Disposal Management: volume disposed per day vs. projected daily disposal total volume managed per day actual vs. expected life of SLF cell equipment downtime incidents in disposal site (accidents, landslides, flooding)56 The ISWM Training Guide
    • Financial Monitoring a) Budget releases (capital and operating budgets) b) Expenditures (capital and operating expenses) c) SWM revenues generated by type d) Grants and other technical assistance received e) Status of SWM Fund Periodic evaluation of outcomes and impacts a) Annual measurement/assessment of waste stream reduction b) Regular monitoring of leachate seepage c) Periodic water quality monitoring d) Documentation of occurrences of diseases related to improper waste disposal (e.g., surface and groundwater contamination, skin diseases) e) Compliance monitoring (of waste segregation at source, of violation of local ordinances)IV. M&E Methods Maintain complete and updated records on SWM operations Monthly/Quarterly review of operations Small studies (e.g., spot checks on wastes brought out for collection, perception surveys, time and motion studies) Annual waste characterization of end-of-pipe waste Periodic monitoring of leachate seepage Periodic monitoring of surface and groundwater qualityV. The M&E Organization Who will be responsible? What type of staff will be required? How will other sectors be involved? What are incentives/sanctions? What will be information flow within LGU SWM organization? What will be information flow to public?VI. M& E and Good Governance Transparency (performance indicators and monitoring plan must be understood by stakeholders; information should support informed and performance-based decision-making; performance assessment should lead to management actions; information should be made accessible to stakeholders; information must be made more understandable to users) Accountability (system should establish the RESULTS for which LGU, barangays, DENR and other stakeholders are responsible; shift from accountability of inputs to accountability for results; established performance standards; recognition of good performance, sanctions on sub-standard performance) Participatory decision-making (information availability enhances ability of stakeholders to participate; feedback from stakeholders is encouraged; mechanism established for multi-stakeholder participation in M and E activities)Incentive Mechanisms for SWMI. Definition of Incentives: tool or inducement used or intended to incite or motivate people and organizations to act or improve performanceII. Rationale for Incentive-Based Instruments SWM is multi-faceted brought about complex interactions of socio-econ and political concerns; a mix of instruments is necessary to solve complex issues Government resources to implement all programs and to enforce regulations are limited SWM entails changes in behavior and adoption of certain practices – inducements are necessary to bring this about Equitable distribution if costs and benefits of the resource The ISWM Training Guide 57

General Considerations in Implementing SW Incentives Effectiveness and dependability Efficiency Administrative feasibility: incentives options continuum Equity (distribution of benefits) Political, societal or community stability CostsV. Types on Incentives Economic, information, social/cultural or ecological Negative or positive Direct (financial or in kind) or indirect (tax incentives, insurance, community projects, education and training, land tenure, community organization, information) Use or non-use incentives Financial (fees, cash rewards, fines, compensation, grants, subsidies, loans or credit) or non-financial (food, goods or services, access to resources) Macro or micro Local or national Legal, economic, social, institutional Incentives for prevention or mitigation Incentives, disincentives, perverse incentives Passive or active Variable incentives and user enabling incentivesVI. Incentives Under RA 9003 Assistance of NSWMC to LGUs Assistance of NSWMC to small recyclers, local communities, manufacturers of recycled products and other sectors Assistance of Provincial SWM Board to component cities and municipalities Assistance of City/Municipal SWM Board to barangays Licenses and permits for operation of SWM facilities Availment of national fund Sharing scheme between national fund and LGU for fines collected under RA 9003 Rewards Fiscal and non-fiscal incentives Financial assistance programs Services provided by GFIs Grant cover Incentives for LGUs hosting common waste management facilities Incentives to private sector proponent who will be financing, constructing, operating and maintaining SWM facility Fines and penaltiesVII. Examples of SWM Incentives (refer to incentives sourcebook in Annex ???) Local InternationalSWM Cost-Revenue and Financing AnalysisI. Major Fiscal Problems of LGUs High dependency on IRA Outdated local tax codes Under-utilization of real property tax bases; under-assessment of local business taxes Poor operation and management of economic enterprises Insufficient utilization of available financial resources Poor planning and budgeting58 The ISWM Training Guide
    • II. Recommendations for Local Government Financing Mechanisms (ADB, 2002) Examine and recognize macroeconomic trends; analyze records of recent revenue collection efforts; improve statistical information underlying revenue estimation Develop mechanisms to enhance accuracy of revenue projections and assessment of revenue impact of tax policy changes LGUs must avoid subsidizing costs that beneficiaries are clearly and specifically identified; subsidies deplete meager resources. However, “public goods” such as environment will require some subsidy Review tax burden of different sectors to improve equity Implement clear, concise and regularly updated tax ordinance Match penalties with implications of tax delinquency to encourage and promote tax compliance Promote good governance through value formation of personnel concerned Explore areas of collaboration and partnership with the private sector and NGOs in service deliveryIII. Who Pays for SWM? Generators, through fees. “Polluter pays” principle. Manufacturers, stores, producers spends for waste reduction, recovery and recycling Market-based: waste generators are penalized through produce charges, deposit-refund system and by-volume waste collection charges Government, as it uses tax revenues at the expense of other functionsIV. Sources of LGU Financing Traditional (internally-generated revenues, IRA from national government and financial aid and donations) Non-Traditional (direct loans, private sector tie-up, LGU bonds)V. How to Conduct Cost-Revenue Analysis of SWM Program Step 1: Consolidate the annual cost estimates for each stage of the SWM process (segregation and reduction at source, collection, materials recovery and disposal management). For each stage, derive sub-totals for capital investments and maintenance and operating costs. Document cost estimation assumptions used. Note the years when capital investments are highest for each SWM stage and for total SWM program. Step 2: Identify potential revenues sources per stage (collection fees, tipping fees, income fro sale of compost and recyclable materials, etc) and estimate annual revenues per source. Document estimation assumptions used. Take note of significant SWM revenue centers. Determine the results of analysis for MRF (recycling and composting) and SLF operations and derive implications for proposed LGU economic enterprises. Step 3: Estimate total annual net revenues (total revenues less total capital outlay + total operating costs). Determine if net cash flow is negative or positive. Identify revenue deficit and revenue surplus years. Step 4. Estimate annual net revenues per stage (revenues less capital outlay + total operating cost). Determine if net cash flow for each is negative or positive. Identify revenue deficit and revenue surplus years. Step 5. For stages where annual net revenues (derived in Step 4) are mostly negative, compare annual revenues with operating costs (revenues less operating cost). Determine if costs of operations can be covered by projected revenues. Summarize conclusions from above analysis. Conduct sensitivity analysis by changing assumptions re costs and revenues (increasing/reducing). Determine effects of such changes on net revenues.VI. How to Determine ISWM Financing (External) Requirements Step 1: Project IRA of LGU for the plan period. Document estimation assumptions used. Based on projected IRA, estimate the 20% Development Fund for each year. Step 2: Get the results of Step 3 in Section V above and assume that negative cash flows will be funded from the IRA. Determine the adequacy of internal sources by computing % of such costs requirements to the IRA. Evaluate if such share from the IRA will be possible and acceptable. Step 3: Determine how SWM programs can be scaled down or how investments can be rescheduled to reduce deficiencies in resources. Identify specific activities that may not be sufficiently funded internally. Step 4: Assume an acceptable level of annual IRA allocation to SWM. Add to revenue estimates and then estimate external financing requirements. The ISWM Training Guide 59
    • Step 5: Identify other sources of financing that may be tapped: loans, grants, private investments, bonds. Determine most applicable form of financing for LGU. Step 6. If LGU plans to secure loan, estimate amount of loan needed and calculate annual amortization with assumed interest rate and payback period. Include loan repayment cost in computation of total cost and repeat analysis in Section V. Summarize conclusions from above analysis. Conduct sensitivity analysis by changing interest rate and payback period. Determine effects of such changes on LGU equity requirements.VII. Governance Questions: Was the analysis adequately undertaken Was the analysis properly supported by data and documents? Were the results adequately explained to users?Financing LGU’s Solid Waste Management Facilities through BondsI. Concept of Financial Markets : where funds are transferred from people who have an excess of available funds to people who have a shortage. Bonds and stock markets are the usual channels of such funds.II. LGU Financing Options (see ESG’s powerpoint) Revenues/IRA Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT): contractor undertakes the construction, including financing, of a given infra facility, and the operation thereof. BOT arrangements include: BT (build and transfer), BLT (build- lease-transfer), BOT, BOO (build-own-operate), BTO (build-transfer-operate), CAO (contract-add- operate), DOT (develop-operate-transfer), ROO (rehab-own-operate). Joint ventures: contract between LGU and private proponent for undertaking a business activity and sharing in expenses, resources, management, control, risks and profits of the venture. Bonds: interest bearing or discounted government security that obligates the LGU to pay bondholder a specified sum of money, usually at specific intervals, and to repay the principal amount of the loan at maturity.III. Municipal Bonds LGU’s power to create indebtedness (Section 296 of Local Government Code) Actually borrowing money from “buyers;” bond represents a written promise by LGU to repay a specific amount at fixed time in the future, with periodic interest payments during its life Why LGUs issue bonds: a) to finance large capital expenditures that could not be financed from LGU’s IRA funds b) to ease pressure on IRA and internally generated funds c) to allow LGU residents to invest in future of their locality d) to enhance transparency e) to finance revenue-generating enterprises or joint ventures and eventually increase local incomes Who buys bonds: institutions and individuals Municipal Bond Issuance Process (11 steps) Use of Bonds in SWM: only if linked with a self-liquidating enterprise or proven to generate adequate revenues. Requires creative approach to financing and may have to use combination of financing strategies.60 The ISWM Training Guide

    • Annex 3B SELECTING A SAMPLE SIZEImportance of Selecting an Appropriate Sample Size Defining a Sampling. Plan. A sampling plan is a detailed outline of (a) whichmeasurements will be taken (b) at what times, (c) on which material, (d) in what manner, and (e) bywhom. Sampling plans should be designed in such a way that the resulting data will contain arepresentative sample of the parameters of interest and allow for all questions, as stated in thegoals, to be answered. Cost of Sampling. Too large a sample may be too expensive and the precision may just bethe same with that of a smaller sample. Too small a sample may not provide sufficient confidencein the subsequent decisions to be made, particularly where risks of a wrong decision is very high. Practicality. The sample size you select must make sense. This is where the trade-offsusually occur. We want to take enough observations to obtain reasonably precise estimates of theparameters of interest but we also want to do this within a practical resource budget. The importantthing is to quantify the risks associated with the chosen sample size.Sample size determinationIn summary, the steps involved in estimating a sample size are: 1. There must be a statement about what is expected of the sample. This should easily be derived from the goals. We must determine a. What is it we are trying to estimate, b. How precise we want the estimate to be, and c. What are we going to do with the estimate once we have it. 2. Decide/Estimate the value of three important factors influencing the size of the sample a. Degree of confidence selected. The term is related to the number of times samples are taken from a “universe.” If samples are taken several times the “Degree of Confidence,” commonly measured in percent i.e. 99%, 95%, 90% suggest the proportion of samples of given sizes will contain the true mean or average of that “universe.” For example, in determining the average volume of solid waste generated, and samples of given size are obtained, the statement would be, “If a series of samples of a given size are taken, 95% of the times the true average of solid waste generated would be within the specified range or interval of each sample.” Therefore, in our determination of the sample, the proportion that we get a sample that does not contain the mean would be 5%. b. The maximum allowable error. This is a value pre-specified by decision-makers or analysts as the tolerable variation from the true mean of the estimated mean. For example, using the 0.95 probability, the total error in predicting the mean weight in kilograms of solid waste generated by household should not exceed 1 kilogram. Thus, the decision-maker would state, ”Based on a sample size n, if the estimate of the mean weight of solid waste generated is, say 6 kilograms, then you will assure me that the mean weight is in the interval between 5 kilograms and 7 kilograms (found by 6+1 and 6-1).” 1
    • c. The variation of the population. The variation of the population (or universe) is measured by the standard deviation (A population with smaller variation requires smaller sample size). Thus, the standard deviation must be estimated. This can be done by (1) estimating the standard deviation of the population based on prior knowledge about the population, or (2) undertaking pre-sampling of a small sample of the target “population” and using the sample standard deviation as the estimate of the population standard deviation. In the case of solid waste management, a small sample of each major source of solid waste generators can be taken, because of the lack of knowledge on waste generation averages in rural areas. Hence, the next step. 3. Pre-sampling of solid waste generation in each major source of solid waste generators. This steps are outlined below: a. Study the spread of each major source of waste generation i.e. income distribution of households, scale of operation of commercial trading, institutions and services, food establishments, and establishments handling toxic and hazardous wastes; b. Cluster or stratify each major source of waste generation and randomly select samples from each cluster or stratum. c. Obtain a one day waste generation and measure weight of waste generation; and 4. Estimate standard deviation of samples from each major source (Use spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel to facilitate computation of standard deviation) 5. The sample size can be now estimated given the necessary parameters. The necessary parameters in estimation are: a. Degree of Confidence: 90%, 95% or 99% b. Maximum allowable error, E, e.g. the 1 kg variation used above c. Z score associated with the degree of confidence For example: When Z=1, level of confidence is 68% chance within this range When Z=2, level of confidence is 95.4% chance If level of confidence is 95%, Z=1.96, (p=0.05) If level of confidence is 99%, Z=2.58 (p=0.01) d. Standard deviation estimated from the pre-sampling. 6. Calculate the sample size. The process can be simplified using the formula: ⎛ z∗s⎞ 2 n=⎜ ⎟ ⎝ E ⎠ Where: n = sample size z = score corresponding to the level of confidence s = standard deviation E= maximum tolerable error 7. In the final sampling process distribute the sample among various strata.2
    • Sample Process For Calculation Of Sample SizeCase Study: Tacurong City, Sultan Kudarat The recently concluded training on solid waste management assessment in Tacurong City,Sultan Kudarat, produced sample data on waste generation by households and a few commercialestablishments, institutions, food establishments, and establishments handling toxic and hazardouswastes. The following data were generated from 8 sample households: Sample Household Total No. 1 Household 1 1.00 2 Household 2 1.20 3 Household 3 9.40 4 Household 4 6.00 5 Household 5 5.40 6 Household 6 3.40 7 Household 7 4.00 8 Household 8 1.80Note: For simplicity of presentation, categories of waste generated are not shown. Names of household heads were replaced for propriety reasons.Step 1: The local government unit coordinating the municipal solid waste management wanted to estimate average waste generation by household and commercial establishment, and desired to have a precision of the estimate of mean to at most 1 kilogram. The data will be used for planning the collection route, schedule and size of collection trucks.Step 2: The degree of confidence desired by the LGU was 90%; base on data specified in Step 1 the maximum error allowable was 1 kilogram; and the standard deviation of the population was estimated by obtaining a pre-sample of 8 householdsStep 3: (Sampling procedure was described above)Step 4: The standard deviation was estimated using the Data Analysis ToolPak of Microsoft Excel (Interested participants may be provided with brief training on how to undertake this process). Table 1 shows results of the analysis using 90% confidence level: Table 1. Descriptive statistics for sample households Sample Households Mean 4.025 Standard Error 1.01026 Median 3.7 Standard Deviation (s) 2.857446 Sample Variance 8.165 Minimum 1 Maximum 9.4 Sum 32.2 Count 8 Confidence Level (90.0%) 1.914016 3
    • Step 5: Summary of necessary information for calculation of sample size based on the above steps are: z = 1.645 s = 2.857446 E= 1Step 6: The sample size using the formula: ⎛ z∗s⎞ 2 n=⎜ ⎟ ⎝ E ⎠ is ⎛ 1.645 ∗ 2.857446 ⎞ 2 n=⎜ ⎟ ⎝ 1 ⎠ n = 22.091 ≈ 23Step 7: Use “population data” to distribute the sample size among various strata of the sampling population.

    • Annex 3E SWM Assessment Sampling Process (Cauayan City)Categories of Waste Sources The total number of waste sources was determined following the majorcategories provided by EcoGov, namely: Food Establishments, General Stores,Industries, Institutions, Public Market, Recreation Centers, Residential, ServiceCenters, Slaughterhouse, and Special Wastes. All in all, there are 10 majorcategories of waste sources identified.Number of Waste Sources by Sub-category The City Planning and Development Office and the Licensing Office suppliedthe data on the number of waste sources by category and sub-category based ontheir inventory and actual count. The number given was limited only to the 13barangays included in the waste collection service area.Table 1.

For purposes of getting the pre-sampling data for households, the groupsdetermined the percentage of households belonging to different income strata inCauayan City. It was agreed that the distribution was: 20% belong to High Incomegroup, 50% are Middle Income, and 30 % have Low Income. They then identifiedwho will be included in the pre-sampling based on the income strata andaccessibility (cooperative, fairly near the training area, accommodating, availableduring the pre-sampling activity). The group got a sample of 10 households for thepre-sampling waste characterization. Table 2 shows the sample size and percentage per sub-category for thewaste characterization activity.2

    • Identifying Samples The ESWMB and TWG mutually agreed on which establishment will beincluded, based on the categories. For the household samples, the group identifiedthe samples based on their location and income strata. Out of the 24 residentialcooperators, 4 (16%) are from the High Income group, 12 (50%) are from the MiddleIncome group, and 8 (33%) are from the Low Income group. All the 13 barangayswithin the waste collection service area were represented in the waste assessment.Determination of Correct Sample Size from Households The following describes the general procedure for getting the sample size used inthe 7-day waste characterization.A. Selecting a Sample Size 1. Estimate the value of three important factors determining the size of the sample a. Degree of confidence selected (most common: 99%, 95%, 90%. This suggests the proportion of samples of given sizes will contain the true mean or average of that “universe.” For example, “If a series of samples of a given size are taken, 95% of the times the true average of solid waste generated would be within range or interval of each sample.” b. The maximum allowable error. This is a value pre-specified by decision- makers or analysts as tolerable variation from the true mean of the estimated mean. For example, using the 0.95 probability, the total error in predicting the mean weight in kilograms of solid waste generated by household should not exceed 1 kilogram. c. The variation of the population. The variation of the population (or universe) is measured by the standard deviation (use spreadsheet software to facilitate computation). This can be done by (1) estimating the standard deviation of the population based on prior knowledge about the population, or (2) undertaking pre-sampling of a small sample of the target “Population” and using the sample standard deviation as the estimate of the population standard deviation. This is what we did with the pre- sampling of solid waste generation in each major solid waste generators, based on income distribution of households. For commercial establishments, based on scale of operations of the different categories: food establishment, service centers, institutions, establishments handling toxic and hazardous wastes, etc. 2. Calculate the sample size using the formula:4
    • 2 zxs n= e where: n = sample size z = score corresponding to the level of confidence 95% = 1.96 s = standard deviation 1.6 ≈ 2 e = maximum tolerable error 1 (kg) [we came out with n = 4] Four samples are so small to get substantial analysis so the group initially identified 26 household samples. However, two sample households were not able to comply with the instructions so the total sample households were reduced to 24. 3. In the final sampling process, distribute the sample among various strata.Final Number of Household Samples Using the aforementioned process, the household sampling size was thusestimated per income strata and distributed among the service area: NAME BARANGAY HIGH INCOME (4) 1 Dr. Bernard Piedad District 1 2 Nestor Antonio District III 3 Atty.

Designation of Resource Person: _______________________________________4. Give a brief description of the program as discussed by the Resource Person (related the discussion to the 5 E’s – Engineering, Enforcement, Education, Environmental Structure and Equity/Budget)5. What is the Program’s strengths and weaknesses?6. What aspect/s of the program do you perceive as applicable to your LGU?DESCRIPTION OF SITES VISITED:1. Carmona, CaviteResource Persons: Ms. Bel Guinto, MENRO and Carolyn Ortiz, MENRO StaffCarmona, Cavite was adjudged as one of the winner of the Galing Pookbecause of its “Balik Inang Kalikasan, Balik Amang Pabrika”. The program is analternative program of waste management. It features market wastecomposting and organic vegetable farming using the compost produced bythe LGU.4
    • LGU-Carmona has the following SWM components: • Engineering – LGU-Carmona has an Ecology Center which house the composting facility and training center. One of the projects under the SWM program is the conversion of biodegradable waste to compost and utilization in the organic farming project. Biodegradable waste from the market is collected and brought to the Ecology Center for processing in the rotary drums. For example, a 1.5 tons of bio waste will be mixed with 300 kgs. Of cocodusk and 20 kgs of activator. After maturity, the compost is used in the demo-organic farm located near the market. Vegetables produced from the organic farm are then sold in the market. • Enforcement - LGU-Carmona has several ordinances to effect its SWM program. They are also collecting an environmental fee from industries for use in pollution protection. The LGU also uses volunteer enforcers who report any environment related violations. The sharing scheme for the enforcers and LGU is 50%-50%. Any penalty paid by the violators is shared with the enforcers. • Education – Continuous IEC campaign using house to house dialogues with the community on segregation are conducted by the MENRO Office. • Environmental Structure - LGU-Carmona has established a Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO) which handles the SWM program as well as other related environmental projects for the municipality. • Environmental Equity – LGU-Carmona has a budget allocation for SWM program (7 Million per year). Strengths: • Galing Pook Awardee 2002 • Political will • Functional Ecology Center with 7 Million budget • Organic farming/demo farm using organic fertilizer (from market waste) • Unity among the leaders and constituents • Encourages the people to “police” –Bantay Paligid • Functional MENRO (since 1997) • Environmental protection fee – maximum of P5,000/year • Garbage fee for commercial establishments • LGU-business partnership • Alliance of 5 municipalities for riverbank protection and livelihood • International linkage (JICA) • Strengthening of garbage in environmental management (stewardship) • 3 years adjudged as cleanest and greenest in Cavite (“Lingap Paligid”) 5
    • • Community-based program • 003-97 Comprehensive Ecological Management Ordinance • Management of waste from Industrial Estate • Modern public market using push carts • Creation of the BIKBAP • House to house campaign on segregation • 10 out of 14 barangays are substantially segregating garbage • MRF (livelihood program)Weaknesses: • Absence of trash receptacles • No controlled dumpsite • No sufficient funds for other SWM activities • No household garbage fee yet • The LGU garbage collectors are competing in the collection of recycables which are supposed to be for the Ecology CenterFeatures Applicable to LGU • Livelihood component of MRF • Participation of LGU personnel in Solid Waste Management • Composting/demo-farm for market waste • Continuous IEC campaign • Strong conviction and political will2. CREST, Silang, CaviteResource Person: Eileen Sison, Executive Director, IDEASThe implementation of the Solid Waste Management Program by theMunicipality of Silang, Cavite is managed by an NGO, IDEAS. IDEAS and theLGU entered a 5-year contract which stated that IDEAS will implement thesegregated collection of solid waste in 14 barangays and the public market. Inaddition to collection, the NGO also pushed for the formulation of related SWMordinances, conducted IEC campaigns in the 14 barangays and public markets,establishment of a Material Recovery Facility, and monitoring and actionplanning.The Silang SWM Program has the following components: • Engineering - IDEAS manages a Materials Recovery Facility located in Barangay San Miguel 2. Recyclables are sorted and sold to junk shop dealers. Biodegradables are composted using a mechanized6
    • composting tank. Vermicomposting further enhances the decomposition process. Organic vegetable farm and training center can be found in the MRF. Unfortunately, the open dumpsite of the LGU has been issued Notice of Violation by the National Solid Waste Management Commission. Hence, there is now a problem in disposal of residual wastes. • Education - Information and education activities are joint efforts of the barangay captains, government employees, Rural Health Unit, Municipal Agriculture Office and local socio-civic associations who were organized as Silang Zero Waste Action Team. • Enforcement - The LGU formulated the implementing rules and regulations of Municipal Ordinance No. 93-002 mandating waste segregation at source. IDEAS and SZWAT also lobbied for the passage of the comprehensive solid waste management ordinance (SB 001, series of 99. • Environmental Structure – The LGU has recently created an interim Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office. But as of to date, IDEAS is still handling the collection of the municipal wastes. • Equity - The LGU has an allocated budget for the collection of their municipal wastes.Strengths: • Committed NGO • Technology/knowledge in Ecological Waste Management (focus on rural barangays) • Presence of segregation practices (functional collection system) • Linkages of populace and LGUs (barangay level) • MOA with IDEAS (LGU pays IDEAS for collecting garbage, composting and capability building at P180,000/month) • Existing ordinance for solid waste management • Existing MRF (owned by IDEAS) including its facilities and equipment • Demo farmWeaknesses: • Absence of dumping site • No controlled dumpsite • Absence of solid waste office/personnel • Fragmented roles/responsibilities • Controlled dumpsite was not utilized • LGU no facilities/equipment for SWM • Subsidized payment of garbage by LGU • Garbage workers not using globes in picking/segregating waste 7
    • Features Applicable to LGU: • Working relationship between LGU-NGO • Demo farm cum training center • Segregated collection on a per day basis • Material Recovery Facility3. Dasmarinas, CaviteThe Solid Waste Management Program of the Municipality of Dasmarinas issimilar to that of Silang, Cavite. There are two MRFs in the municipality: one is runby the NGO and the other by the LGU. The SWM project is a public-NGO-community partnership.The components of the SWM Program are as follows: • Engineering – Two Ecology Centers were established near the public markets to facilitate the collection and processing of market waste. Biodegradable wastes from two subdivisions are also collected by Eco- Aides and brought to the Ecology Center for processing. • Education – House to house campaign is undertaken to promote the program of segregation. • Enforcement – Segregation at source in selected pilot areas are enforced. • Environmental Structure – Not discussed by the resource person • Equity – The NGO counterpart in the program includes the use of the site and the infrastructure costs as well as food allowance for the center’s full- time workers. The LGU counterpart includes the equipments, salaries, and operating and maintenance costs of the center. The pedicabs used for waste collection were donated by the LGU, the Homeowners’ Association and the barangay.Strengths: • Presence of an Ecology Center utilizing the lot owned by the NGO • Market waste is the main ingredient for the compost • Collection of waste is paid by the LGU • Sack of coconuts for shredding is paid by the vendor at P3/sackWeaknesses: • Site of the composting center is near the public market • Budgetary constraints • No dryer for the compost • No defined LGU function in the SWM program8
    • Features Applicable to the LGU: • MRF for composting • People’s/stakeholders participation • LGU—NGO-Community partnership in SWM activities • Waste segregation and collection4. San Fernando City, PampangaName of Resource Person: Ms. Myrna Manabat – Municipal AgricultureOfficer/Interim CENROThe SWM program of the LGU is mainly focused on composting. The technologyused comes from DOST including the equipment. The LGU uses Tricoderma tohasten the decomposition process.

The executive summary should indicate to what extent the plan is meeting the mandatory provisions of the law.1.0 Introduction This introductory section should describe the primary reasons of the LGU for undertaking ISWM planning. For urbanizing LGUs, the primary reason is to allow it to address the demands of a fast growing economy. The factors (internal or external) that are bringing about this fast growth should be explained. Some evidences of growth may be cited (even if only qualitative), e.g., increase in the number of industrial, business establishments and service institutions in the past five years; increase in the income of the LGU or change in status to city; the expansion (area wise) of the central business district of the LGU; higher population growth rate (compare different time periods) and higher population density in urban barangays; increase in transient population. This section should also discuss the importance of the plan. a. To provide a firm basis and guide in making SWM-related decisions. It could be that past efforts of the LGU were largely piecemeal, inefficient/ineffective, inadequate (some previous SWM activities may be cited). b. To be able to comply with RA 9003 which requires LGUs to come up with a 10-year ISWM plan. Cite other requirements of the law.2.0 ISWM Planning and Legitimization Process2.1 Objectives of ISWM Planning This should describe what ISWM planning, as a process, would provide. (Note: The objectives listed here differ from the objectives listed in Section 5.) a. Provide an analysis of the LGU’s physical, socio-cultural, and economic features, current SWM practices and programs, and waste generation data to serve as basis for defining SWM options. b. Recommend criteria for evaluating SW management options. 1

Highlight the following: a. location of the LGU and how it is related to neighboring LGUs in terms of their physical features (e.g., within one watershed, off-site impact areas, etc) b. topographic/geologic/climatic features which may constrain (e.g., high rainfall area, poor soils, flood prone, steep slopes, critical watersheds) or favor the establishment of disposal facilities within the LGU A map showing the boundaries of the LGU, the major river system that runs through it, location of major urban center (CBD) and location of existing and proposed disposal facility would be helpful.3.2 Accessibility (This is important to determine if there are access constraints to the marketing of recovered/processed waste materials, to the establishment of inter-barangay or inter-LGU common facilities, and to the delivery of SWM services within the LGU. This information is also useful in making decisions on road infra investments that may be necessary in support of SWM.) Provide an assessment of how far and well-linked (road system) the LGU is to its neighboring LGUs, particularly those which are being considered for SWM clustering with the LGU. Also indicate accessibility to existing markets of recyclables (outside the LGU). Plans to improve the road system within the next five years should be indicated. A road network map showing road links with barangay centers, adjacent LGUs and market would be helpful. Also provide an assessment of the transport linkages between the various barangays to the LGU center and how this would facilitate/constrain establishment of central/linked SWM facilities. Indicate if there are plans to improve the road network in the next five years.3.3 Socio-Demographic Features (This section will be important to project the population that will be serviced by the LGU and the increase in waste generation by households within the 10-year period. It will also indicate other characteristics of the population that are important in developing SWM interventions – opportunities/constraints, focus areas for SWM management, IEC, etc.) 5
    • Population for the Period 19xx-2000 Present data on population growth and population density of LGU for at least two census years, with barangay breakdown. Identify specific barangays where population growth and density is highest. Inclusion of a settlement map (base map can be taken from the CLUP) showing where the population concentrations are, including subdivisions, would be helpful. Population Projections (10-Yr Plan Period) Show the projected population growth for the ten-year plan period (using NSO projections on annual growth rates) – both municipal/city and barangay levels. Identify the key factors/important assumptions considered in making the projections. If transient migrant population is significant, provide estimates. Given the current and projected distribution of population among barangays and the per barangay population density, determine which barangays will become “urbanized” within the next five and ten years. Other Socio-Demographic Data If data is available, include an analysis of the current poverty situation in the LGU: households with incomes below the poverty line (use regional poverty threshold if LGU has no established threshold). It would also be helpful if there is a map that would show location of low, middle and high income population centers within the urban centers. Describe ethno-cultural features of the LGU which have bearing on SWM. Identify what the leading causes of mortality and morbidity are and see if these are in any way caused by poor sanitation/improper waste disposal. Indicate if there have been cases of diseases in any part of the LGU which is due to poor sanitation, particularly in areas where population density is high or where waste disposal facilities (dumpsites) are located Indicate the literacy rate of the LGU population. If schools are considered important for IEC, indicate existing educational facilities in the LGU and if they have any programs/subjects/ activities that relate to solid waste management.3.4 Economic Sectors (This section will indicate what sectors will be major waste generators and the kind of wastes that can be expected in the future, given the projected development path of the LGU.)6
    • Current Situation Identify what are major economic sectors of the LGU at present (agriculture, trade and commerce, services, manufacturing, etc) and any significant trends in the past five years (e.g., changes in mix of major agricultural products, increases in the number of service establishments, establishment of large factories/malls, construction of a market, etc.) If data on the changes are available (e.g., number of establishments/institutions), these should be included in the write-up. Projected Scenario What is projection of LGU with respect to its key sectors? What major changes are likely to happen during the plan period? The CLUP and municipal/ provincial/regional investment plans should be examined to determine these (e.g., expansion of agricultural areas, planned establishment of industrial center or a processing plant). Determine external forces (outside the LGU) which can propel or limit the growth of the LGU. A map showing location of barangays and which project the spatial development of economic sectors (refer to CLUP maps) would be helpful. It would also be helpful if the municipal/ city LGU can project against this map the coverage of their current and future (by 5th year and by 10th year) SW collection areas.3.5 Solid Waste Generation Current Situation This should provide a summary of the analysis of the waste characterization data presented in summary tables, charts and graphs: weight and volume of wastes generated (per day) by type of material (bio-degradable, non-degradable, residuals, special waste); components of wastes generated by different sources; per capita estimates of waste generation, disposal and materials recovery; composition, volume and weight of end-of-pipe waste; baseline of % waste diversion.. In the discussion of the key results of the analysis, point out their significance to SWM planning. Refer to Annex C for the detailed waste characterization data. Projected Scenario Present projections on waste generation (by barangay, total for LGU) given the 10-year population projections, per capita waste generation and estimated % of population to be covered by the LGU’s collection system. Discuss implication of these data on SWM planning. Refer to Annex G for all the projections made for planning purposes. 7

Describe the system for procurement and contracting that will be followed and the mechanism that will ensure that such are followed. Make sure that such procedures are in accordance with the new procurement law. Highlight good governance elements in the proposed systems.6.3 Performance Monitoring Identify the important milestones, outputs and outcomes/results that will be monitored. Describe how reporting will be done (within LGU and from LGU to constituents – highlight TAP practices); identify responsibility centers for M and E; indicate incentives/sanctions that will be given/imposed for good/poor performance. The M and E section should indicate how the LGU intends to monitor its annual performance with respect to waste diversion (law requires 25% within 5 years). 7.0 Financing the Plan7.1 Investment and Operating Costs Provide a summary (with annual breakdown) of the financing requirements to implement the 10-year plan. Present the summary in two ways: a) by SWM stage; and b) by major cost category: investment costs and operating and maintenance costs. The latter is to include personnel costs. Use the standard government accounts in presenting the budget. Use current costs – without adjusting for 11
    • inflation or general price changes. Detailed cost estimates (with cost standards used) should be attached as Annex H. Indicate which years will require heavy investments and the reasons for this. Indicate the trend of the level of operating costs. Discuss how plan implementation will be funded (general fund, 20% development fund, external sources – grants, loans; partnership with private sector; BOT). Present the current and projected (ten years/plan period) IRA and 20% development fund of the LGU and indicate % that will be allotted to SWM. Mention how other costs, beyond what can be funded from the IRA/20% development fund, will be financed.7.2 Revenue Generation If revenues are to be expected from SWM operations, show the projected incomes over the 10-year plan period. Separate the projections for different types of revenues. Clearly indicate assumptions made in preparing the projections.7.3 Cost-Revenue Analysis Present an analysis of the cost and revenue figures, by comparing the two in order to determine how much of the costs can be covered by the expected revenues. Revenues can be compared with a) operating costs alone, and b) total of operating and investment costs. Revenues from a specific SWM operation/stage may be compared with the costs associated with the particular operation/stage. Clearly state the conclusions and recommendations arising from the analysis.8.0 Year One Action Plan and Budget8.1 Priority Activities in Year 1 Describe what will be the major focus of Year 1 of the plan. Describe the milestones/major outputs that are expected on the initial year. From the activities listed in the components and implementation arrangements, cull out those that will be undertaken in Year 1. It may be necessary to list also some of the intermediate steps (more detailed activities) that will be necessary. These activities should be presented with a bar chart showing the implementation period of each activity over the 12-month period.12

    • Annex 5B GUIDELINES FOR THE ANALYSIS OF SWM ORDINANCES Prior to the formulation of the policy support component of the IntegratedSolid Waste Management (ISWM) Plan, it is important that LGUs do an analysisof their existing ordinances. The compilation, summary and analysis of thesepolicies will be made part of the situational analysis of the ISWM Plan. The analysis will have two objectives. These are: 1) identifying gaps interms of the requirements of Republic Act No. 9003 also known as TheEcological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 and its Implementing Rules andRegulations (IRR); and 2) identify aspects in the ordinances where goodgovernance practices can be integrated. The LGU technical working group (TWG) should form a sub-group for thisspecific activity. This sub-group shall be tasked to undertake the compilation andsummary of existing ordinances, and their analysis. The gaps identified in theanalysis will indicate the types of ordinances that the TWG should include in thePolicy Support Component of the CRM plan. The output of this activity will thusbe used as inputs to the preparation of the policy support component of theISWM Plan and to the actual policy formulation. The sub-group should include the Chair of the SB/SP EnvironmentCommittee and the ABC President. It is critical that sub-group membersundertake a thorough review of RA 9003 and its IRR before starting the analysisof ordinances. In performing the analysis, it is recommended that the following guidelinesbe observed:I. Analysis to identify gaps in terms of the requirements of Republic Act No. 9003 and its IRR: Section 10 of Republic Act No. 9003 provides that pursuant to the relevantprovisions of RA 7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code, theLGUs shall be primarily responsible for the implementation and enforcement ofthe provisions of the said Act within their respective jurisdictions. In addition,Section 4, Rule XIX of the IRR of Republic Act No. 9003 provides that localgovernment units shall be required to legislate appropriate ordinances to aid inthe implementation of Republic Act 9003 and in the enforcement of its provisions.The said Section 4 further provides that specific measures to implement andenforce Section 48 (Prohobited Acts) of the Act should be included; provided,such ordinances shall be formulated pursuant to relevant provisions of RA No.7160. It is against this backdrop that this analysis will be conducted. It willbasically address these questions: 1
    • 1. Does the LGU have existing ordinances on solid waste management?? 2. Are the existing ordinances of the LGU on ISWM consistent with the provisions of RA 9003 and its IRR? 3. Do the existing ordinances support or provide for the implementation and enforcement of the provisions of RA 9003 and its IRR?Use the attached guide (Annex A) for the detailed analysis of ordinances.II. Analysis to identify gaps in terms of good governance in the ordinances enacted. The second aspect of the analysis will focus on the identification of gaps interms of good governance, particularly with regard to the principles oftransparency, accountability, and participatory decision-making. Refer to AnnexB for the Guide to the Analysis of Governance Features, which defines thesethree principles and provides examples on how they can be put into place. This analysis will be conducted on existing ordinances enacted by theLGU on ISWM. In the absence of such ordinances, this part of the analysis willnot be undertaken. Instead, this portion may serve as a guide in the preparationof ordinances specifically with regard to the provisions on transparency,accountability and participatory decision-making.For this part of the analysis, the relevant questions are: 1. Does the ordinance contain provisions that prescribe transparency? 2. Does the ordinance clearly identify the centers of responsibility? 3. Does the ordinance provide who shall be held accountable for actions and decisions? 4. Were the stakeholders involved in the preparation of the ordinance? 5. Does the ordinance provide mechanisms by which the stakeholders can participate in the decision-making process?Annex C provides the detailed guide for the conduct of this particular analysis.2
