One such location is an empty plot opposite St. Thomas Bay in Marsaskala, a touristic and popular area for those seeking some leisure time. According to reports received by the newsroom the area is being used by a dumping site, with authorities not taking appropriate action to minimize the eyesore that these actions may cause.

Earlier today a video showing a man dumping rubbish on a Valletta street corner was shared on Facebook by the Valletta local council. The council went on to remind the public that fines for littering can go up to €5,823.43 and that CCTV footage is being used to identify individuals who litter in the same way.

Various localities around the island are currently taking similar stands against littering and illegal dumping. Meanwhile hoards of social media users are taking to their pages to express disdain at the littering and waste in their localities while asking for immediate, swift and effective action against the offence.
