Khorief Ouissem and Mahimoud Aissa

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.
