Alfonso Mayor Randy Salamat has found an excellent way to mange the town’s trash while making sure his constituents are fed.

Salamat will launchy the “Bote ng Plastik, Bigas ang Balik” project where residents could get a kilo of rice for a kilo of plastic.

The plastic has to be placed in 1.5 liter plastic bottles, and these will be collected wice a month.

The collected plastic, called “EcoBricks,” will be turned over to the local environment office and the Sangguniang Kabataan for their own use.

This will make sure Alfonso is cleaner, and its people well-fed!


Project launching will be on July 22, 8am at Alfonso Covered Court.

Handog po namin sa inyo ang proyektong ito upang maging sagot sa problema sa mga plastic na basura. Ang EcoBrick o mga ginupit na basurang plastic sa loob ng 1.5L plastic bottle na maiipon ninyo ay pwede ninyong ipamalit ng bigas.


1. This “Bote ng Plastik, Bigas ang Balik” program encompassed the 32 barangays of Alfonso, Cavite.

2. Collect as many EcoBrick as you can and weigh them.

3. Once the EcoBrick reached one kilo or more, attend the monthly scheduled submission of these bottles at Alfonso Covered Court for the exchange of kilo of rice.

4. One kilo of EcoBrick is equivalent to one kilo of rice. (1:1)

5. All eco bricks (in 1.5L plastic bottle only) will be collected twice a month and the household per barangay with the most earned eco brick will be awarded.

6. Awardee must choose a child to be the recipient of the said award.

7. All the collected EcoBricks will be turned over to MENRO, and Sangguniang Kabataan of each barangay for their creative use of the EcoBricks,” Salamat posted on Facebook.
