Manila City Partners With NGOs for E-waste Initiative


Trade Your E-Waste for Concert Tickets Through the City of Manila’s Program

Join the call to more eco-friendly practices with Manila City's initiative, along with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), Ecowaste Coalition, and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Environmental Management Bureau (DENR-EMB National Capital Region).

The program encourages the public to bring their electronic waste and exchange it for a concert ticket for the "Together WEEE Can - An E-Waste Collection Concert." Different OPM artists, including Kian Cipriano, Zild, Kiyo, and a lot more, have come together to join the call with a one-night concert at the Marikina Sports Center on Nov. 5.

Join the environmental initiative by exchanging your small e-waste for one ticket, your medium e-waste (like a toaster or TV) for two tickets, and your large e-waste (including refrigerators and washing machines) for three tickets.

You can drop off your e-waste at Ortega Covered Court, Barangay 737 Zone 80, District V, Malate, Manila, until Oct. 27 to exchange it for tickets.
