Siam Piwat 360° Waste Journey to Zero Waste project focuses on 360-degree waste management from upstream to downstream, opening the opportunity for everyone to take part in conserving the environment. As part of the project, Siam Piwat has collaborated with partners to launch the Recycle Collection Center (RCC), the first drive-thru collection points for unused and cleaned packaging waste materials in Thailand, located at 2 locations in Siam Paragon: the tour bus parking area behind Siam Paragon, Opposite Wat Pathum Wanaram School and around Exit 4, Rama 1 Road, on the Siam Paragon and Wat Pathum Wanaram side. The collection points are open to customers and the general public. Participants can deposit cleaned and sorted waste, which will be sent to be recycled into raw materials and then upcycled to add value to the waste. Some of these upcycled products can be found at “Ecotopia”, a retail space for eco-friendly products at Siam Discovery. In addition, Siam Piwat also adds value to the deposited waste, allowing participants to exchange their waste into VIZ Coins via ONESIAM SuperApp, which can be used to claim various benefits in shopping centers.
