The IPC Recycling & Buy-Back Centre is calling for visitors to activate their ‘green hands’ to earn rewards for recycling.

IPC Shopping Centre at Mutiara Damansara, Petaling Jaya, is kicking off its annual green campaign to empower Malaysians to recycle and reduce waste.

The “Green Hand” campaign, held at the shopping mall’s IPC Recycling & Buy-Back Centre located at Level P1, calls for visitors to activate their “green hands” to earn rewards for recycling from now until May 31.

Shoppers with recyclable items such as newspaper, plastic and aluminium will enjoy double rewards during the campaign.

To recycle and redeem rewards, visitors are required to bring their recyclables to the IPC Recycling & Buy-Back Centre and get the items weighed (ensure there is no kitchen waste, food waste, contaminated materials or disposable diapers).

They will then receive cash and a collective receipt (buy-back prices are subject to type of materials and weight).

The collective receipt can then be presented at the i-Counter at Level G, to redeem “Green Hand” rewards such as RM5 Popular Bookstore Voucher, exclusive IPC metal straw and canvas bag.

“We received such a positive response from last year’s Recycling & Buy-Back Centre campaign, so we knew we had to continue it this year,” said IPC Shopping Centre marketing manager Eleanor Lo.

“Having a physical recycling and buy-back centre within the shopping centre has proved to be a convenience for many of our shoppers and neighbours. We wish to maintain our commitment towards a better planet.”

In 2009, IPC became the first shopping centre to introduce its buy-back system with a proper recycling station through the launch of the Recycling & Buy-Back Centre.

It is one of the few collection points for out-of-life mercury content light bulbs and batteries.

The collected bulbs and batteries go through a thorough process to ensure safe delivery to waste management company Kuality Alam for proper disposal.
