The transport ministry has condemned the dumping of furniture at Selmun, saying that it was “unfortunate that such cases were still happening, despite the fact that the people could use a door-to-door bulky waste collection service offered for free by local councils.”

“One can also throw away his waste in civic amenity sites,” a statement by the ministry reads.

A video, which is currently being shared on social media, uploaded by Raniero Borg, shows the picturesque views from the area, marred by the remains of a bedroom dumped at the site.

In its statement, the ministry said its directorate for cleanliness also offered a free collection service and would continue to work day and night to keep the country clean but stressed that people had to do their part as well, adding that calls on freephone 1718 are addressed within 24 hours.

The statement says that people can also log on to www.garbyandtidy.org.mt or mobile app and facebook page Garby and Tidy to contact the directorate.
