Balik Baterya: More than Protects the Environment

October, 19 2009
The Balik Baterya Program is Ramcar, Inc.’s flagship CSR program which involves collection of used lead-acid batteries (ULABs) for proper recycling and production of new automotive and industrial batteries. Proceeds generated from the value of collected ULABs are channelled to various environmental, educational and health projects. 

In 2008, more than 254 metric tons of ULABs were collected from Balik Baterya partners saving an estimated 361 cubic meters of landfill and preventing spread of toxic wastes that can be detrimental to our soil and water systems. 

The Balik Baterya program is implemented in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) and the Philippine Recyclers Incorporated (PRI), with the support of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), Department of Education (DepEd) and Department of Health (DOH).
