One of the greatest dilemma in the community is the management of waste disposal of the people. Not only does it impose health related problems, it also hinders the nation`s progress as a whole. The study aimed to determine the solid waste management practices of selected high schools as perceived by the teacher and student-respondents in Zone II (Palauig, Iba and Botolan) Division of Zambales during the School Year 2018-2019. The researcher utilized quantitative descriptive research design with questionnaire as the main instrument in gathering data from fifty teachers and one hundred fifty students who were randomly selected. The study focused on the solid waste management practices such as waste segregation, waste disposal, waste recycling/re-use and waste reduction. The teacher-respondents “sometimes” practiced on waste segregation, waste disposal, and waste recycling while “always” practiced” on waste reduction. The student-respondents “always” practiced on waste segregation while “sometimes” practice on disposal, recycling and waste reduction respectively. There is significant difference on the dimension of solid waste management as perceived by teacher and student respondents. There is significant difference on the solid waste management practices between teacher and student respondents.
