Landfill increases as of 1st June despite no agreement reached with stakeholders

Wasteserv (Malta) Limited have earlier this afternoon decided to implement the increase in landfill fees as of June 01, 2010, despite the fact that no agreement with stakeholders has been reached. It has been brought to our attention that notices have been placed at all of Wasteservs receiving facilities so that any one using the facilities is made aware of the implementation date


It is truly a sad day for the words ‘consultation and dialogue'. GRTU has been awaiting feedback from the Ministry for Resources and Rural Affairs since 8th April 2010, the day after our last meeting. Waste serv is truly just the scapegoat in this affair and understandibly they cannot move on unless they receive the funds required to operate landfills.

Whilst we have always understood the word sustainability, GRTU had recomended a number of ways to approach this increase in a more holistic manner. It sorely seems that this sector ‘taz-zibel' is being treated like ‘taz-zibel' in the true sense of the word. Whilst other sectors have been given millions of liri, this sector has been overwhelmed by a monopoly by the name of Wasteserv that has year after year taken away all EU funding which was truly directed for private industry to restructure itself accordingly.

There are sixteen more days to the end of the month. We truly hope discussions are stepped up and a solution is found. Another Naples should not be the order of the day…but its time the sector stood up to be counted.
