Bantay Baterya, a project of Bantay Kalikasan which recycles used lead- acid batteries, recently sealed a Memorandum of Agreement with the Manila North Harbour Port, Inc. to ensure proper disposal of this hazardous waste.

North Port, as the cargo handling operator of the premier domestic port at Manila North Harbor, has committed to donate its used lead- acid batteries. Aside from helping save the Environment, this partnership will also cut the cost of disposing used lead-acid batteries. Further, for every donation, North Port will be awarded a BIR Certificate of Donation which is 100% tax deductible.

Bantay Baterya’s partner in recycling used-lead acid batteries is Oriental & Motolite Marketing Corporation.    

The equivalent monetary value of the recycled batteries will be used to fund the area development projects of Bantay Kalikasan nationwide.
