ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc. (ALKFI)-Bantay Kalikasan Anvaya Cove recently signed an agreement with ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc. (ALKFI)-Bantay Kalikasan to support its environmental initiatives. The signed agreement was for Bantay Kalikasan’s Bantay Langis and Bantay Baterya projects.
Under the agreement, Anvaya will donate its usedlead acid batteries and used oils from their two properties, Anvaya Beach & Nature Club and Anvaya Golf & Sports Club.
The used lead acid batteries and used oils will be turned over to ALKFI’s recycling partners, Genetron International Marketing (for oils) and Oriental & Motolite Marketing Corporation (for batteries) for proper disposal or recycling.
Joshua Zacarias de Jesus, project development manager of Anvaya Cove, said: “The MOA signing was made due to the efforts that we want to do to preserve the environment in two aspects, the recycling of our used oils and batteries. The clubs produces about 5,100 liters of used oils per year and 252 used batteries per year.”
The monetary value of the recycled hazardous wastes will be donated to Bantay Kalikasan to support its advocacies for the environment and its 14 ecotourism sites in the Philippines.
