Consequently, qualitative content analyses of the articles were done manually and by analysing search results system. The content analysis results revealed the trend of the article's publication yearly- theoretically, practically and methodologically. The analysis disclosed less attention and emphasis given to 3Rs and landfill according to the percentage rating (2.90%) of 66 related articles on waste management education. Thus, the essence of waste reduction and waste education need to be reinforced among various waste generators and the rules and activities regarding waste reduction need to be acknowledged and initiated. Awareness and enthusiastic, forthcoming events and encouragements occupied a vital position in how discarded materials could minimise.
