Wasteserv launches educational campaign on Organic Bag Pilot Project

Over 3,800 households reached so far

Over 3,800 households have already received a visit by Wasteserv representatives explaining the new system for collection of organic waste that is being introduced later this year. 

The pilot project was recently launched by Minister for Sustainable Development, the Environment and Climate Change Leo Brincat.

Initial reactions from the public have already started to reach Wasteserv through its Freephone service and social media platforms as well as direct feedback during door-to-door visits.  

Residents in participating localities mainly enquired about details of the collection system, while calls were also received from keen residents outside the five chosen localities who were interested to learn when they too can start separating their organic waste.

“We are pleased with how the pilot project has kicked off,” said Wasteserv CEO Tonio Montebello. “The educational campaign is proving to be a fruitful exercise and we are also using this opportunity to tackle any difficulties residents may have with the separation of recyclable waste,” he continued.

Wasteserv representatives have started going door to door in Bormla, Għaxaq, Mdina and Ta’ Xbiex to explain the pilot project and hand out informative material to residents. In the coming weeks the educational campaign will also extend to Birkirkara.

This follows an official notification by the respective Local Councils and various announcements in the local media. Representatives of Green Pak and Green MT are also assisting with the door-to-door campaign.
