SM City Bacolod is involved!  SM continues with its Corporate Social Responsibility projects such as the Trash to Cash Recycling Market Fair every first Friday and Saturday of each month.  This reduces solid wastes of  tenants and encourage shoppers to practise waste segregation. 

Recycling Market “Trash to Cash” event was  launched last February 2007 to raise awareness in the community on the environment efforts of the mall. This event promotes the benefits of waste segregation and recycling. The  disposal of unused materials/waste  in an environment friendly way through  groups of responsible recyclers gives  one an additional income from the sale of waste material that has been regarded as no value. This event is  participated in by customers and the rest of the community held simultaneous in all malls  every 1st Friday and Saturday of the month.

Under the SM Solid Waste Management Program,  SM promotes the 3Rs of  Waste Management . Recycle, Reuse and  Reduce. 

Recycle  -  Segregate  waste  and make  sure that it is collected and taken for recycling .
Reuse  -     Dont throw away wastes , they can be use for other purposes in your homes, office.
Reduce   - Always try to think of ways and means to reduce generation of unnecessary waste.

All SM tenants across all malls are enrolled in Tenant Solid Waste management program  to reduce the volume of solid wastes through proper waste disposal.  Tenants are given orientation on the benefits of waste management  to encourage support on  waste segregation at source and  proper disposal. Collection and consolidation are strictly monitored to ensure 100% compliance of all tenants. At the same time, mall garbage haulers are also oriented to adhere to the  waste management program.    

SM also has segregated trash bins with proper labels  to promote waste management and encourage practice of waste segregation among tenants and shoppers. The next Trash to Cash Recycling Market Fair is on March 2 & 3.
