Abstract In the 1970s, Iligan City experienced rapid industrial growth brought upon by the establishment of hydroelectric power plants that generated cheap electric power cost. But the mushrooming of industries in the city somehow led to environmental degradation because of the uncontrolled industrial waste, as observed in the 1990s. Accordingly, this was largely due to the absence of master plan, zoning regulations or building codes of the city government. With this, the study seeks to assess the development of city ordinances and the compliance of the select industries to solid waste management program. This study collected various documents and records both from the government offices and industries in Iligan City. Furthermore, the researchers also conducted oral interview to key respondents such as city government and industry officials, and even the community wherein the industries are located to provide a qualitative substance to the paper.
