Food chains are among the fastest growing business today. However, the large amount of wastes generated by these establishments threatened the environment and the health condition of the society they serve. This study determined the waste management practices adopted by selected fast food chains in Ozamiz City. Problems encountered in implementing waste management procedures were also identified. A cross-sectional survey was conducted using a structured questionnaire which passed the Chronbach’s alpha reliability test. Results revealed that more than 50% of fast food chains complied the waste management practices with wastes segregation (98.3%) as the most practiced. However, problems with adherence towards efficient waste management activities still exist. Collection (ranked 1), and segregation (ranked 2) of wastes were the problems identified by 41.7% and 35.0% of the respondents respectively. The results imply that the city wastes’ collectors and the staff responsible for wastes segregation need thorough knowledge of the significance of efficient wastes disposal practices.
