Nikolina Aguis and Edward Arrigo are the first two proud winners of Euro 50 cash voucher each. They participated in the recovery of glass through Green MTs initiative for increasing glass collection from Siggiewi. Siggiewi is the first locality indergoing such an initiative. In our third week of collection, Green MT recovered nearly two tons of glass from Siggiewi last Monday.
Green MT will be providing eight cash vouchers of Euro 50 each monthly in localities where a glass collection will be held. Coming Monday 2nd April, a collection for glass starts from Mgarr Malta and on Thursday 5th April another first collection of glass takes place in Ghasri Gozo.
Glass is being collected in plastic crates provided to the community by Green MT under an agreement with the individual Local Councils. The Scheme intends to have collections from minimally ten Local councils in Malta and all Local Councils in Agreement with Green MT in Gozo. This is an island wide initiative to decrease glass going to land fills. We do not want another Wied Fulija anywhere else in Malta. Enough is enough and we will continue to work with Government Authorities to provide an acceptable parameter to the Competent Authority so that glass fraction is reused locally thus creating more economies of scale.
Once we get the public on board of this initiative, our next step is to segregate glass according to its colour. This would be more beneficial…however we have made a start on the long and ambitious road…and each and every resident has a duty to either use the system or else use the glass Bring In Sites.
