Since I am living in the Philippines, I am wondering how they manage their waste in this country.
Everywhere you see waste if you keep your eyes open when going around. I am sure many locals don't see the waste anymore, but as a foreigner I do, however it's getting less. It seems you get used to it.
On the beach a lot of waste, especially plastic, but the beach is usually cleaned by the owners of the sheds, because if there is a lot of waste on the beach, the price of their sheds will go down.
In the sea at some places also a lot of plastic, not only coming from the beaches, but also from the rivers (see below) and ships. Along the roads, especially in the barangay's and on the riverbeds there are many places where people dumps their waste bags.
