Waste to Products

We had an invitation from another German national who is currently based in Iloilo. No second thoughts, we immediately flew to Iloilo.

Arrived in Iloilo via Cebu Pacific at around 8:35 AM. Went straight to Sarabia Manor Hotel to check in, freshen up and ready to rock! As it was almost lunch time when he arrived at the hotel, so we ate in the hotel. Then we headed to the place : Bingo!

Okay, it stinks like hell! So what? This is what we came for! So smell here.. smell there.. same smell everywhere! After sometime, you can't smell a thing. I got used to it I think.

Mountains of Garbage

Basura here, basura there, basura everywhere

A lot of mix merchandise stored here. No wonder they call it Waste Mining. Kids, Adults, Old, Young are working in this dumpsite. Day and night, they have to sniff this unique smell.

A lot of IF comes to my mind, if only we know how to handle our scrap. If and if, its always easy to blame somebody..

After the dump site office, we headed to the office attached to DENR. The following are the products made out of our garbage.
