    ABSTRACT: This action research aimed to identify the various problems and issues arising from the day-to-day operations of the automotive repair shop in terms of proper automotive liquid waste management and from these problems, to develop an Automotive Liquid Waste Management System for the BSU-CIT Automotive Technology Department. The respondents of this study were the 77 faculty members and selected students from the College of Industrial Technology Automotive Technology in the BSU Main Campus for the school year of 2013-2014. The main survey instrument used in this study is the standardized Survey Questionnaire on Automotive Liquid Waste Management of www.spokanewastewater.org. The said instrument was slightly modified to fit the research locale and conditions of the study. Based on the results of this study, the AT department services an average of 3 vehicles per day, with usual operating hours of 4 hours a day. It also commonly offers the following services namely: oil change, brake and engine repair. The most common type of equipment found in the AT department is the vehicle lift, part washer and oil drum rack. In addition, the most common type of liquid automotive waste products generated is the used motor oil (15 - 20 liters) and the used brake fluid (4 liters and below). Finally, the respondents all “Agree” that there is a need to recycle used oil and that there is also a procedure in handling and disposing liquid automotive waste. On the basis of the foregoing significant findings and conclusions of this study, the following recommendations are offered: 1) the CIT should sponsor orientation seminars regarding liquid automotive waste for both students and teachers in the AT Department; 2) the teachers continue to strive to continuously look for creative ways to minimize and recycle various automotive liquid wastes; 3) the teachers are encouraged to manifest favorable values in caring for the environment to their students; and 4) the school administration may also consider the implementation of the proposed liquid automotive waste manual to further improve the current practices in the AT Department.
