This study was conducted to assess the junkshop industry in Cabanatuan City, Philippines. It aimed to determine the profile of junkshops, the materials they trade, and their compliance with legal requirements. Using descriptive qualitative research design with 20 randomly chosen participating junkshops as respondents, the researcher found out that junk shop operations are lucrative and can help support economic development as well as solve certain environmental issues. However, many of them were operating without registering with the concerned authorities. Aggressive involvement of the LGUs, by organizing junkshop operators, and close monitoring of junkshop operations are few from among the recommendations of the study.
