(Potentially) Toxic Cell Phone Batteries


Don’t throw your use mobile phone batteries, chargers and other accessories in the garbage because “these contain potentially toxic chemical substances that may escape into the atmosphere or clog waterways to worsen floods” when improperly disposed of. This is the message conveyed by DENR Secretary Atienza during the recent lunch of the “Cell Phone Waste Collection and Recycling” at Dusit Hotel. This a good start for proper electronic waste disposal. The project aims to designate drop-off points for discarded mobile phones and parts in public places like shopping malls. The Major proponents are Department of National Resources-National Solid Waste Collection and Recycling (DENR-NSWMC) and Department of Trade and Industry-Board of Investment (DTI-BOI), and with technical assistance from Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

The three designated areas where twenty collection bins will be installed are Glorietta, Greenbelt (Makati City), SM Mega Mall (Mandaluyong City), and Greenhills Shopping Center (San Juan City). The e-waste will be sorted and temporarily stored in the malls and will be recycled by HMR Envirocycle Philippines.

Cell phone manufacturers (Alcatel, L Electronics, Motorola, Nokia, Samsung, Sony Ericsson), network service providers (Globe Telecom, Smart Communications, and Sun Cellular), selected mall owners (Ayala Malls Group, Ortigas & Company Ltd. And SM Prime Holdings) are also involved in this projects.

The proponents should also include large electronic devices, like TV, stereo, DVDs, VCDs, personal computers, printers etc in their project. We have large volume of these other electronic waste, from locally manufactured to imported second hand TVs and personal computers. They should also involved National Panasonic, LG Electronics, HP, Epson, and others in their campaign for a cleaner, healthier, and safe environment.
