The environmental issue has become a world –wide apprehension inthe last decades being the focus of discussions in a variety of forums both atnational and international levels. Because environmental problems arerooted in economic and social policies, they occur at all levels from local toglobal, including the universities, specifically Pamantasan ng Lungsod ngMaynila. The school is responsible for dealing with these problems andworking towards solutions.Accordingly the university has tried to address this over the years bycreating policies, and programs in conformity with the environmentallegislation, laws and regulations and, expenditures. Although it is not theChemical engineering (ChE) department’s function to question policy it ishowever, as concern citizens, the department’s responsibility to investigatethe effect of policy and the management measures that lead to policydecisions. In this way the ChE department can help the institution do a better job vis-à-vis proper waste management.Consequently, the fourth year chemical engineering students hasembarked on carrying out environmental audits. The audits will be carriedout on any of the environmental issues facing the university (including solidwaste management and waste water). As a pilot environmental audit, adecision was made to audit waste management with particular emphasis onMedical, Solid and Chemical waste generated by colleges using thelaboratory facilities. Three colleges (College of Medicine, College of Scienceand College of Physical Therapy) were audited, while the PhysicalDevelopment and Special Projects Office (PDSPO) was solicited. Waste that isnot managed properly affects not only human health but the other aspects of the environment like water, air and biological diversity.
