Green MT has launched a strategy whereby it is, with the full collaboration of Local Councils, introducing a range of initiatives related to encouraging the separation of waste and reducing therefore the amount of mixed waste disposed in the waste stream.

Within the Local Councils only a very small percentage of this waste is separated and they believe that each individual in their locality is keen to reduce and recycle waste in favour of the environment. These Local Councils have established targets for the separation of waste coming from both the residents and the commercial area.

The initiatives include:
  • Introduce or enhance sights with skips for waste separation
  • Increase the collection days for separated waste
  • Decrease the collection days for mixed waste
  • Education campaign
  • Scheme for the collection of bulky waste
  • Collection of separated waste from the business community




The Local Councils who have signed the agreement are: B'Kara; Msida; San Gwann; Santa Lucija; Siggiewi; Ta` Xbiex; Mosta; Swieqi
