The Philippine Alliance for Recycling and Materials Sustainability (PARMS) is a multi-stakeholder coalition consisting of members across the waste management value chain; from corporations, retailers, industry groups, haulers, converters, junkshops, MRFs, civil service organizations, academe, and government agencies. PARMS is premised on developing and implementing a holistic and comprehensive program to increase resource recovery and reduce landfill dependence, leading towards a zero waste Philippines.
During the latter half of 2017, PARMS had committed with nine corporate partners (Coca-Cola FEMSA Philippines; Liwayway Marketing Corporation; Monde Nissin Corp.; Nestlé Philippines Inc.; Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc.; Procter & Gamble Philippines; Unilever Philippines; Universal Robina Corporation; Vouno Trade and Marketing Corporation) to invest in a Php 25-M residual plastic recycling facility that will address the need to recycle flexible, low-value plastics such as sachets.
The program is founded on a comprehensive approach which includes a 5-component plan of an Information, Education, and Communications Campaign; the Recovery of residual waste from schools and communities; the collection of such waste with the partnering LGU; the Technical Assessment of the waste and the Market Development of the recycled products; and the Treatment Facility operation.
