Did you know that The SM Trash to Cash Recycling Market (TTC) is now located in 74 SM Supermalls and 5 SMDC properties, namely Mezza, Jazz, MPlace, Light and Sun?
Trash to Cash is a recycling market held every first Friday and Saturday of the month to encourage waste segregation and recycling among our customers, tenants, and the community. The recycling market is open from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
Trash to Cash accepts paper, plastics and PET bottles, glass, metal, tin and aluminum as well as cookware and kitchen items. Used Lead Acid Batteries (ULAB) are accepted in the malls during the recycling market on a quarterly basis – March, June, September and December.
What’s the Cash Equivalent?
Each mall has an assigned recycler with their own price per classification that varies according to the prevailing market price. For the duration of the recycling market, the recycler will weigh the customer’s items, compute for the equivalent price and directly transact with the customer for the cash exchange.
