Green MT, the National Authorised Waste Packaging Compliance Scheme and GRTU subsidiary has embarked on an education campaign in all schools within those Local Councils that are in agreement with Green MT.
Eco Councillors are visiting each individual School and discussing with Heads and Assistant Heads and Eko Skola representatives how to improve recovery of separated waste from Schools and the infrastructure required together with other initiatives that the school and the Scheme decide to set up together.
During the last month Eco Councillors visited Schools in Mosta, Dingli, Marsascala and also St Lucia where talked directly to the students. Students were made aware on all aspects of separating waste. Students were further instigated to think about future visions and concepts including a ‘zero waste‘ ideology. Eco Councillors answered to questions placed by a number of students. During these talks students were also given notepads made from recycled paper.
Green MT has also met Wasteserv and discussed the possibility of visits by students to the Materials Recovery Facility, where an agreement was reached that such visits will be effected on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Green MT aims to further develop its education campaign within Schools through a number of other initiatives which will include a mascot and also a number of jingles which will be utilised shortly and in tandem with an advertising campaign aimed to increase recovery of recyclables in Malta and Gozo.
