H06 [Household] Waste disposal
Daily household activity always gives rise to the creation of garbage and waste which must be gotten rid of as quickly as possible to maintain a healthy environment.

In large cities, household can use a "refuse collection" service to get rid of household waste; they can pay for a "private garbage collection" service if one is available. They can also, and this is generally recommended in certain areas, dig holes to bury the household waste; this procedure is called "burial." Or [a household can] burn the garbage to ash: this is "incineration." In many cases, the household gets rid of its household waste by piling it willy-nilly along transportation routes or throwing it into the bushes or any uninhabited space: this is "disposal in nature." Households located on waterways (rivers, creeks, etc.) and on the ocean often get rid of their household waste by throwing it either into the "waterway" or into the "ocean." These are the many solutions used by households to get rid of the household waste they create. Thus we request that you ask the following question: "What do you normally do to get rid of the household waste created by your household?" To record the answer, simply circle the number of the corresponding code.

  • The public waste dump is a public land or piece of land intended to receive and accumulate garbage in large quantities; generally it is located outside cities and is identified by the large amount of waste that it receives.
  • If the informants declare two or more ways to dispose of garbage, ask for the method more recurrent or for account for more garbage. Informants should determine it, but if they are unable to do, select the one that appears first in the answer choices.

By household refuse, we mean waste from domestic household activity. Here we try to identify the main modes of disposal of this household garbage by encircling the codes of the appropriate modalities.
The AR circles the code:

- ''1'' if the household uses the services of a pickup truck
- ''2'' if it is using a carriage/cart
- ''3'' for disposal in an authorized depot
- ''4'' for disposal on an unauthorized site

For households that bury their garbage (the practice of pouring garbage into a hole, which is then closed), the AR will circle code ''5''. Code ''6'' is circled for households that incinerate their garbage (action to destroy waste by burning it). For cases different from the six (6) dealt with above, the AR will circle code ''8'' corresponding to ''other'' modality.
