Abstract:
Education for sustainable development entails building a culture among people; it is much a matter of imparting knowledge and developing skills as it is shaping attitudes and practice are adapted on campuses especially as these relate to sustainable waste management. The emphasis on recycling activities as a sustainable waste management strategy has represented a shift in paradigm from the conventional collection and waste disposal practices. Most recent studies recommend the re-use and recycling of solid waste. The study determined the practices of Basilan State College Freshmen Education students on Solid Waste Segregation at home. This study used a descriptive research design using a survey questionnaire. The study used a random sampling procedure, where 165 education students served as respondents of the study. Results showed that: the majority of the respondents (70.6%), “sometimes” practice waste segregation; and only 29.4% of them, “always” practice it at their homes. Majority of the respondents’ family (73.5%) “sometimes” practice waste segregation and only (26.5%) “always” practice it at their homes. The practice of the Education students and the practice of the family members of the students on solid waste segregation are moderately significant correlated (∞ = 0.344). This study concludes that, if a member of a family practices solid waste segregation at home, other members of the family will also practice solid waste management.
