Nowadays the management of waste is of national importance.  The Scheme Green MT, which collects separated waste from numerous Local Councils in Malta and Gozo, will be launching a campaign during the European Week for Waste Reduction.  The campaign named ‘Tetra ghall-Istrina’ will be encouraging any individuals (including Schools, Local Councils, hotels, catering establishments etc.) in Malta and Gozo to join us in increasing the recycling and separation of packaged waste.  The main aim of the campaign is to collect as many cartons of milk and juices (any brand), which unfortunately till last year were never considered as recyclable waste which could be disposed in the Grey bag. 

 Green MT will be collecting from Schools, Local Councils, Hotels and Commercial entities (list updated daily in our Facebook page, check for updates).  The EWWR – European Week of Waste Reduction will be held during the week of 18th November 2017 till 26th November 2017.  This campaign will also be promoted through the use of broadcasting methods and social media.

 Green MT has warned that deposit schemes can actually increase recycling rates but that this is not always the case, adding that they have been shown to be costly and ineffective in unique societal and economic contexts.

The waste management firm said that the government was mulling the introduction of Deposit Return Systems (DRS) for plastic bottle recycling, but that when this had been proposed in 2006, it was shelved after heavy opposition from producers, retailers and other stakeholders.
