Aling Tindera Program Expands to the City of San Juan
More plastic waste collection stations can soon be expected in the city of San Juan as an agreement was recently inked between the local government and Plastic Credit Exchange.
The MOA signing took place last March 23, 2022, in the San Juan City Hall, where representatives from both parties were present, notably PCX Founder/CEO Nanette Medved-Po and City Mayor Francis Zamora. The partnership will deploy Aling Tindera stations across the city to provide residents with accessible opportunities to engage in plastic waste management.
“It’s PCX’s dream to have collection stations across the entire nation. Most PCX stations are currently located in the City of Manila, and we’re glad we get to touch upon another city. We’re thrilled to be a part of San Juan’s waste management efforts and we look forward to seeing how the program will hopefully lead to a cleaner, healthier community,” says PCX Impact Director Ilusion Farias.
San Juan’s partnership with PCX is part of the city’s larger environment plan ‘Makabagong San Juan Para Sa Kalikasan.’ The MOA signing event also served to seal partnerships with Greenpeace and EastWest Building Tech Inc. for the city’s other initiatives.
Aling Tindera is PCX’s proprietary waste-to-cash program that encourages individuals to participate in the fight against plastic pollution. Inspired by the presence of multiple sari-sari stores or small community stores, all Aling Tindera stations are managed and maintained by women entrepreneurs, enabling them to be champions of sustainability in their areas.
