This study aimed to determine the waste disposal practices of the backyard poultry owners in San Jose, Batangas particularly the different problems caused by the disposed backyard poultry waste to the environment, health and sanitation and community. The researchers employed the descriptive research in a quantitative approach to describe and interpret the data collected through survey questionnaire. The 100 respondents of the study were the backyard poultry owners from the three barangays of San Jose, Batangas, 46 from Galamay-Amo, 33 from Lumil and 21 from Palanca. They were chosen through purposive and quota sampling techniques. Majority of them often sold the manure waste to be used as fertilizer and other purposes. They agreed that there were problems, caused by the disposed poultry waste to environment, health and sanitation and community through the environmentally unsound or improper waste disposal. The LGU of San Jose, Batangas may provide effective promotional strategies to encourage poultry owners to practice proper waste disposal.
