A barangay in Muntinlupa City is giving away rice for every plastic waste turned in for proper disposal or recycling.

Every resident of Barangay Bayanan can go home with a kilo of rice for two kilos of plastic waste, a report by Reuters said.

“I weighed in at 14 kilos of residuals, so I got 7 kilos of rice grains. This is a big help for us to have one kilo of rice for the day,” 49-year-resident Veronica Dolorico told Reuters.

The set-up is helpful for some residents as a kilo of rice is worth between P30 to P40 pesos

In August alone, Bayanan was able to collect more than 213 kilos of sachets, bottles and plastic bags, said village chief Andor San Pedro.

The village chief said the food-for-trash swap is teaching people how to properly dispose of their waste.
