REUSE, REDUCE, RECYCLE

RECYCLE ~ TURN THOSE TRASH INTO CASH


Be The Change by Hello! is set to be held on

27 September 2009 in The Gardens Mall,

Kuala Lumpur and MIX fm is proud to be the

official radio station. This event aims to raise

awareness and to educate the public on the

dire state of the environment, and to show what

YOU can do to help preserve the environment.

A panel of judges will be selecting a Top 10 of all
the photographs submitted and the winner will
be announced during the Be The Change event
in Concourse, the Gardens Mall.

The following photos are photographed at one of

the Recycling Collection Centre in Puchong.



A worker at a Recycle Centre busy separating the
parts and sort it accordingly to plastic, metal & scrap.



A lorry just arrived with all scrap (extreme left)
for recycling.




Piles of plastic items waiting to be sorted out.



Mineral plastic bottles are pressed / piled
together as per picture.


I will go to this Recycling Collection Centre
once a month. I will sort out plastic, mix
papers, Black & White paper, metal/tin,
newspaper and carton boxes to be sent
there. My recent trip I managed to get
RM31.80 .. a good pocket money for
my son :)

The latest price was :-

Old carton boxes/papers ~ RM0.30 per kg

Plastic/mineral bottles ~ RM0.90 per kg

Metal/Tin scrap ~ RM0.25 per kg

(last time before tin prices drop it was RM0.90 per kg)


So, recycle for money and for our environment....

Thanks for dropping by :)
