Green MT Glass Collection Event at St Paul’s Bay Local Council

Green MT, the National  Authorised Packaging Waste Compliance Scheme
in collaboration with the St Paul s Bay Local Council last Saturday organized a
four hour event during which residents and all those with recycling at heart
were asked to bring two empty clean glass bottles/jars to Bugibba Square and in
return be able to win a number of fantastic prizes, including dinners and
lunches and also weekend breaks at leading hotels.

Although the weather was
not on our side, the event brought along a good number of residents who turned
up with bottles and jars and took part accordingly. The event was presented by
DJ Pierre Cordina and a number of other entertainers, including Glen Vella ,
Kristina Casolani and a number of very promising young singers. Animators face
painted kids and over a thousand green balloons coloured the square.

The aim of the event was
to create more public awareness towards more collections of glass from the
residents and commercial establishments. It is a known fact that many still
place glass in their black bags and do not use recycling glass banks in their
respective localities.

The event was attended by
all Green MT Staff and Eco Councillors who participated and worked hard to make
sure the event was a successful one. GRTU Vice President Philip Fenech was also
present for the event.  Those present
were addressed by Mr Mario Salerno, the local Mayor who outlined the importance
of more and more education but also more participation from residents. The
collection finally amounted to just over two tons of glass from this event.
Green MT thanks one and all but primarily the residents and commercial
establishments in St Paul s Bay for their participation.

Green MT is a National
Authorised Packaging Waste Compliance Scheme and operates on behalf of 1300
producer members. Further information can be obtained by contacting the Scheme
