Here's a good news to all Metro Manila residents.

Every First Saturday of the Month, from 8 AM to 2 PM, there is a Recycling Market or Waste Market Day at all SM Supermalls Open Parking space.

You can just come and bring all your trash and junk and exchange them for useful items and cash. This event is sponsored by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the SM Group of Companies, in partnership with the Philippine Business for the Environment.

What can you trade or sell at the waste market?

Items you can trade:

  • Scrap paper and cardboard - for bathroom tissue, table napkins, bond paper and notebooks.
  • Empty ink and toner cartridge - for quality remanufactured ones
  • Plastic bottles and plastic scraps - for plastic household items like hangers, basins and pails
  • Used lead batteries (from cars, UPS and voltage regulators) - for car check-up coupons

Items you can sell:

  • Used PET bottles (containers of softdrinks and mineral water bottles)
  • Aluminum and tin cans
  • Junk electrical appliance, specially computer monitors

Items you can just drop off:

  • Polystyrene
  • Styrofoam
  • Junk cellphones and cellphone batteries
So, for the remaining months of the year, remember the following dates:

November 1 December 6

This project is in support of Republic Act 9003 or the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000. The act calls for “practical applications of environmentally sound techniques of waste minimization such as segregation, recycling, resource recovery, re-use and composting.
