MAUBAN, Quezon—Mauban, a first-class municipality in Quezon, is finding cash in trash in what seems to be a thousand and one ways.

From discarded candy wrappers, juice packs, soft-drink plastic straws and other items, curtains, comforter, throw pillows, bags, hollow blocks and assorted things are coming out at the end of the production line.

?If the garbage item is recyclable, we will find ways to convert it into something useful,? said Erly Reasonda, head of the municipal environment and natural resources office.

She showed empty juice packs filled up with plastic trash sewn together to become a ?comforter,? a soft, sturdy item that may serve as protective mat for baby baths and bedridden adults.

?We sell one filled juice pack at P150. The customer can order any size of the comforter and the sewer will sew the pieces together to meet the specified order,? Reasonda said.
