Waste project in Baseco, Manila by World Experience Philippines

Waste project in Baseco, Manila by World Experience Philippines


The slums of Bataan Shipping and Engineering Company Compound or simply BASECO are considered to be one of the poorest of the country. The slum and its surrounding waters are packed with litter and the smell of the waste can be overwhelming. To tackle the waste problem World Experience Philippines (WEP) set up a project in which local waste collectors and educators will try to clean the street from within the community.

WEP is working together with Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRRC) to implement a pilot project for 12 months in Baseco (Port Area, Manila) which consists of:

  • the regular separate collection of three different waste streams
  • their intermediate storage at a Waste Transfer Station, which has been will be constructed and which is being operated under the pilot project.
  • and their subsequent environmentally sound management

The objectives of the project are:

  • To improve the collection and management of waste in Baseco
  • To show the community how to reduce and manage waste, including sorting at source.
  • To reap the hygienic, health and environmental benefits of improved waste management.

The pilot project is financed from a grant by donors of Smokey Tours and will run from September 2018 to September 2019

The households are asked to sort and separate their waste in three different categories: Biodegradable, Recyclable and Residual. On several locations in the area the waste can be dropped off and will be collected by the waste collectors. The three waste collectors, financed from the project budget, collect the wast 6 days per week. The three categories of waste are further seperated at the main waste collection station.
