THE PT Mayora Indah Group (Mayora Group) has partnered with two plastic waste management companies, with the aim of improving garbage collection and plastic recycling projects in Metro Manila.
“With the help of Plastic Credit Exchange (PCX) and Green Antz, Mayora Group is providing communities with the right resources to not only promote sustainability, but also create livelihood opportunities and improve local road safety protocols,” Mayora Group said in a statement. .
The Mayora Group said it used Green Antz to recycle plastic waste into terminals for residents of the cities of Manila and Pasay. About 800 shredded laminated plastic bollards were donated to Pasay City through the management of Light Rail Transit-1 (LRT-1). These bollards will guide commuters and cyclists while navigating the roads surrounding LRT-1 train stations.
In addition, Mayora Group has partnered with PCX to launch its own beneficiary Aling Tindera and has asked for help from women sari-sari shop owners in Manila in garbage collection using refurbished container vans.
“As part of this project, the Mayora Group joins PCX to provide opportunities for micro-enterprises to expand their network within communities, and possibly gain a new source of income through the exchange of waste. collected for cash,” he said.
