SM Telabastagan and SM Pampanga Join SM Cares' Roster of Plastic Waste Collection

SM Supermalls corporate social responsibility arm- SM Cares, added SM Telabastagan and SM Pampanga to the growing list of SM Malls that are now a part of its Plastic Waste Collection Program. 

Customers from nearby communities may now drop off their clean and dry plastic waste and Parking D, near the SM Store Entrance in SM Telabastagan, or near the steel deck parking in SM Pampanga, from 10AM to 5PM daily. Plastic materials such as PET bottles, grocery bags, e-commerce pouches, food containers, dishware, plastic utensils, and alike are accepted, except for PVC pipes. 

The SM Cares' Plastic Waste Collection Program was launched in 2021 in partnership with Plastic Credit Exchange (PCEs), to promote responsible and proper plastic waste disposal by making plastic waste collection accessible for everyone. With this, SM continuously expands its plastic waste collection to more SM Malls nationwide.

This in turn is equivalent to: 93,543.12 km driven by an average passenger vehicle; 2,848,462 smartphone charged; 8.1 tons of waste recycled; 1.2 garbage trucks of waste recycled; 1,1014 trash bags of waste recycled; 888 incandescent lamps switched to LEDs; or 387 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.
