This study applied Pierre Bourdieu’s Theory of Practice to garbage management practice among public schoolchildren. The equation [(habitus x capital) + fields = practice] is translated for this study’s aims as socio-demographic attributes may bear upon predisposition (habitus) multiplied by resources (economic capital) reinforced by home and school settings (fields) results to garbage management practice. Using a sample of 320 public elementary school grade 3 learners in Iligan City, the study tested Bourdieu’s concept of fields, translated as the learners’ settings (home and school) and their reinforcing effects upon habitus – practice link. Results showed that home setting has a stringent significant relationship with garbage management practice. Whatever the children learn at home regarding garbage management has high reinforcement effect upon their every garbage management practice. Home setting has a strong significant relationship with garbage management practice, while school setting has the inverse significant relationship. Despite low reinforcement from school, children still likely practice proper garbage segregation and appropriate garbage disposal probably owing to the reinforcement from the home setting. The study’s application of Bourdieu’s Theory of Practice model which states that home and school settings (fields) predicts schoolchildren’s garbage management practice is hereby stated as the original equation home and school settings (fields) results to garbage management practice.
