Abstract—This paper aims at examining the role civil
societies in waste management in Skikda and evaluating their
implications and results. This study provides the information
needed to evaluate the rate of their participation and the ways
to improve it. The data for this study were collected through a
survey questionnaire conducted on the environmental
associations of Skikda. The survey took into account a variety of
criteria including the frequency of participation of the
association, the theme(s) they focus on, the distribution of their
efforts, the utilized tools, etc. The quantitative data gathered are
then analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Sciences
(SPSS). Finally, the results show a passive participation of
associations in waste management on several levels.
