Balik-Baterya is a program pioneered by Oriental Motolite Company, that seeks to clean the environment of pollution-causing junk batteries by collecting used batteries from cars/motor vehicles, UPS, rechargeable lamps, generators, marine vessels, aircrafts and other batteries or materials containing "Lead" chemical.
In its aim to help preserve the fragile environment, Oriental Motolite together with PBSP, Department of Environment & Natural Resources (DENR) and Department of Health (DOH) launched the Balik-Baterya Project which solicits partnerships with companies and individuals to properly dispose their used batteries by selling or donating them.
PBSP (Philippine Business for Social Progress) is a private and non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting business sector commitment to social development. Organized in December 1970 by 50 of the country's prominent business leaders, PBSP has since grown to become the nation's largest business-led social development foundation.
Oriental Motolite Company (OMC) is a member company of PBSP since 1988. It is engaged in power solutions for both automotive and non-automotive application services. It is the undisputed No. 1 brand of battery in the Philippine market today. (PBSP/PIA 9-zc) [top]
