Prime Integrated Waste Solutions Inc. (PWS) was established to answer the increasing demand for waste management solutions in industrialized and fast-growing cities in the Philippines, starting with Cebu.
Using state-of-the-art equipment, PWS implements a transformation strategy focused on resource recovery solutions for various wastes. The objective is to significantly reduce landfill volumes, thereby less organic waste ending up decomposing and producing harmful methane emissions.
PWS started its operations in 2022 when it acquired the owner and operator of the largest private engineered sanitary landfill in Cebu. PWS Cebu currently processes 1,000 tons of Cebu’s municipal solid waste daily, with plans to bring the quality of operations at par with world-class material recovery facilities (MRFs).
By upgrading waste capacity and modernizing facilities, PWS provides clear economic, social and environmental benefits.
PWS targets to expand its operations by developing two more semi-automated MRFs in Luzon, and to optimize value created from waste by capitalizing on opportunities from Prime Infra’s complementary sustainable fuels business.
