Representatives of Wasteserv have already met with more than 3,800 families to explain the new system of organic waste collection which will come into force next year. The pilot project was launched a few weeks ago by the Minister for Sustainable Development, Environment and Climate Change, Leo Brincat.
The first reactions for this project have already reached Wasteserv through the Freephone service which the company offers, as well as its social media presence and direct contact with the public through its door-to-door visits. The most common questions by residents who were included in the pilot project were about how the collection system would work, while there was also a good response from people who live in other areas who were interested in learning about how they could separate their organic waste.
Wasteserv Chief Executive Tonio Montebello said that this was a positive start, and that the educational campaign was leaving the desired results, as residents were even being guided on how to separate waste which can be recycled.
Representatives from Wasteserv were now visiting households in Bormla, Għaxaq, Mdina and Ta’ Xbiex to explain the pilot project to residents and to provide them with further informative material.
In the next few weeks, the educational campaign will also be extended to Birkirkara. Residents were officially notified by their respective local councils as well as through announcements in the media. Representatives of Green Pak and Green MT are also giving their contribution in the door-to-door campaign.
