If you have excessive plastic materials in your household or in your business establishment that you wish to get rid off, then you should seriously consider collecting them for proper disposal as Mindbuilders Preschool announced that a new plastics drop-off campaign will be held on November 5 and 6 at its facility at 168 Tropical Avenue, BF International, Las Piñas City.
This means you can bring your excessive plastic materials to their school, drop it off and then leave. The school and its partners will handle the rest. Event partner Pure Oceans Philippines will collect the materials and forward them to technology partner Envirotech Waste Recycling which in turn will process them all at its upcycling plant. The process on the part of Envirotech will convert the materials into 100% upcycled plastic products such as school chairs.
What is upcycling? It is the activity of making new furniture, objects, etc. out of old or used things or waste material, according to Cambridge Dictionary.

For more on upcycling, here is a 2017 news video about upcycling in South Korea.
Going back to Plastics Drop-off campaign, the plastic materials that will be accepted at the school are as follows:
SOFT PLASTICS – residual plastics like candy wrappers, sando bags, plastic labo, straws etc.
HARD PLASTICS – like broken appliance bits, toys, the bottles the junk shops won’t take, takeout containers (clean please) etc.
Before donating the plastic materials, make sure they are clean and segregated between soft and hard plastics.
This is not the first time the plastics drop-off was held this year. In fact, previous plastics campaign held in late August saw a grand total of 84.7 kilograms worth of plastic materials collected (note: I participated by bringing to them the plastic materials from our household).
So if you missed out on that campaign, now you have a new opportunity to get rid of excessive materials at your household or business establishment. Mark November 5 and 6 on your calendar!
As for me, I will donate plastic stuff again.
