SM City Mindpro Rolls Out SM Electronic Waste Collection Program

As a responsible member of the community, SM City Mindpro, through the SM Cares Program on Environment and supported by SM Cyberzone, has launched its Electronic Waste Collection (EWC) Program. This corporate social responsibility and sustainability initiative encourages mall shoppers, communities, and individuals to bring their old gadgets and other e-waste for proper disposal by accredited hazardous waste collection partners. 

Acceptable electronic waste includes old or broken mobile phones, mobile phone chargers, power cords, commercial batteries, earphones/earbuds, calculators, printer ink and toner cartridges, small gadgets, and computer wiring, among others. E-waste collection is available in all SM malls nationwide. Customers can bring their e-waste every day at Level 4 Cyberzone area during mall hours.

Aside from the SM E-Waste Collection Program, SM City Mindpro’s other initiatives for the Environment include the Trash to Cash recycling, water recycling thru its Sewage Treatment Plant, and the use of Exterior Insulating Finish System (EIFS) and Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) making the mall a cost-efficient and energy-saving establishment.

SM Cares is the Corporate Social Responsibility arm of SM Supermalls, with programs to support communities and promote social inclusion and care for the environment. To know more about SM Cares, you may also visit (PR)
