The rise in global waste generation significantly hinders the effective implementation of waste management practices. CTU – Campuses have contributed to local waste generation throughout the years. To further address this arising problem, this paper assesses the solid waste practices of CTU Campuses of Danao, Carmen, and Tuburan. The study estimated how much solid waste is generated and identified which waste management strategies work best. The methodology used in this study was carried out on the 3 CTU Campuses; the use of a school waste assessment form that evaluated the current waste management practices in terms of waste generation, segregation, collection, and disposal processes across the campus facilities. Results showed that CTU-Tuburan has more proper solid waste practices regarding composting pits. However, CTU-Tuburan has the biggest estimated volume of waste generated monthly, impacting individuals' contributions to waste generation. CTU- Carmen gives enough availability of 3 sets of garbage containers and a plastic bottle recycling collection bin in some places. CTU-Danao and Carmen have enough recycling activities and have less contribution to the estimated volume of waste generated. The three campuses have a sufficient garbage collection schedule; however, they lack comprehensive waste reduction efforts and are not consistently followed by certain individuals on the campuses.
