The Mercury Ville @ Chidlom and Mercury Tower jointly promote public awareness of waste management issues and participate in on-site waste separation. In response to Bangkok Metropolitan Administration’s (BMA) forward-thinking #ไม่เทรวม initiative, dedicated waste separation points have been established, categorizing waste into four types in the lift lobby areas on floors 2 and 3. This initiative aims to facilitate convenient disposal or repurposing of waste in line with the BMA’s environmental goals.
Plastic Bottles can be recycled and transformed into synthetic fibers for clothing, filter sheets, straps, decorative furniture fabric, and rugs.
Glass Bottles & Cans can be 100% recycled by melting it into new forms, making it the most environmentally sustainable material.
General Waste cannot be recycled but must be disposed of properly to avoid environmental harm.
Paper can be recycled to produce paper packaging, such as shock-resistant paper, cup trays, and egg cartons, making it an environmentally friendly material.
Fun fact: Bangkok is the city with the highest daily volume of municipal solid waste in Thailand. In the year 2022, Bangkok had a waste volume of 10,706 tons per day, with each resident generating 2-3 kilograms of waste daily. This has led to the city implementing waste management policies, with the #ไม่เทรวม project being one of the key initiatives in waste management on a sustainable basis.
