6,550 tons of glass to be recycled into new products

Malta does not have facilities for recycling of glass, but this is still being reused. Some 6,55o tons of mixed glass is being exported, with Environment and Planning Minister Aaron Farrugia stating this is the biggest ever amount of glass exported since 2013.

During a visit to the Grand Harbour where the loading for export was in progress, Minister Farrugia stated that this initiative is part of extensive work by Wasteserv for Malta to move towards a circular economy where certain materials are processed and re-enter the market.

“This success is thanks to the people because at the end of the day the people have continued to separate and we have achieved these positive results as a country. I look forward to the people and Maltese families continuing to separate waste, as this will allow Wasteserv to continue to operate properly.”

The glass which has been collected from centres for bulky refuse, bring-in sites and door-to-door collection is being exported to countries with facilities for recycling. Wasteserv Chief Executive Richard Bilocca stated that waste separation remains crucial to recycling strategy.
