To understand the types of materials, physical and chemical characteristics of our wastes, a Waste Analysis and Characterization Study (WACS) has been introduced to Local Government Units (LGUs) to aid them in effectively managing wastes in their respective areas. This is a process of determining the volume and kinds of wastes generated.

On February 21, 2022, EMB Caraga sent a team of technical personnel from the Ecological Solid Waste Management (ESWM) Section to serve as resource persons for the WACS Orientation organized by LGU-Prosperidad.

The said activity was done in Brgy. Awa Covered Court, Awa, Prosperidad, Agusan del Sur with barangay officials from different barangays. Out of the thirty-two (32) barangays of said LGU, around twenty-five (25) of them were represented.
