SM Supermalls encourages shoppers to reduce waste and earn money at the same time with its Trash to Cash program.

“Trash to Cash” is SM’s open-to-all recycling market held every first Friday and Saturday of the month at all SM Supermalls. The program allows families to come in with trash like scrap paper and cardboard, empty ink toner cartridges, plastic bottles and scraps, used lead batteries from cars, aluminum, tin cans, and many other items, and take home cash.

A joint project of SM Supermalls with the National Solid Waste Management Committee, Philippine Business for the Environment, and other government units, the Recycling Market Day has acquired a following since its inception.

For its efforts to promote recycling, SM was recognized as the “Champion for Re-use/Recycle” by the Zero Basura Olympics (ZBO) during its Earth Day celebration at the SM Mall of Asia Complex in 2010. In 2016, the People Management Association of the Philippines (PMAP) recognizes SM Cares with the 2016 PMAP Tanging Bayani ng Kalikasan Award (Non-Government Category) for its outstanding achievement in the area of clean air and climate change, the highest environmental management honor given by organization.

Trash To Cash Recycling Market Day happens this coming April 5 & 6, from 10AM to 2PM at the north covered parking of SM City Cebu, lower ground floor Mountain Wing in SM Seaside City Cebu, and at the open parking in SM City Consolacion.
