BAYANIHAN THROUGH Waste Trading Markets

I really think there's a bayani in everyone.  Here's one way we can fan the bayanihan in everybody--helping the environment.    We can start by segregating our trash and putting them into its right place.  There are "Waste Trade Markets" around the metro.  All we have to do is find one and drop some of things that can still be re-used, or recycle like glass, paper, plastics, batteries etc.

In Makati and Alabang Zapote Road for example, every first Friday of the month at the Gold Crest Car Park, Ayala Center (along Arnaiz Ave. Makati), and Every third Friday of the month) at the Alabang Town Center (Alabang - Zapote Rd), you can find a Waste Trading Market.

SM Supermalls also have this kind of advocacy and calls it SM Trash to Cash.  You can bring reusable and recyclable wastes there every first Friday to Saturday of the month from 8 AM to 2 PM at all SM Supermalls. WHAT THE WASTE MARKETS OFFER; 
Trade scrap paper for new (office/ mimeo) paper!
 Trade used ink cartridges for new!
 Sell your electronic waste (junk computers) and old / broken appliances
Sell your used lead acid batteries
Redeem the following for cash: PET plastic bottles and other plastics, aluminum/tin cans, scrap glass 
Drop off points also provided for junk cellphones/ cellphone batteries/ styrofoam

Recycling now is made convenient and accessible through the Waste Markets.  All the more for those who frequent the Shopping Malls.  Let's make recycling a habit!
