MCAST Votes to Recycle


MCAST in
collaboration with Green MT, an Authorised Packaging Waste Compliance Scheme is
launching a comprehensive college-wide initiative that aims to keep 10 tons of
recyclable materials out of the landfill over the coming six months.

The
project includes the provision of large crates which can take different
materials, clear Plastic Bottles, Coloured Plastic Bottles, Paper, and also
crates for used plastic coffee or tea cups in areas where students relax. The
crates will be monitored and emptied by the college staff and will firstly be
situated at the newly built Institute of Applied Science with a view to
extending this project to cover all other Institutes.

The
contents of the crates will be emptied into larger bins located outside the
Institute for easy recovery by the collection vehicle.

The
crates will be located at entrances of academic buildings, including the common
areas, the cafeteria, and student centers. Bins will also be added to common
spaces such as break rooms and printer areas.

"MCAST
will hold a commitment to environmental responsibility, and with this
commitment we can encourage everyone to help out and reduce the College's
environmental footprint," said Ms Alison Gauci, Lecturer at MCAST.
"We'll be working to build a student environmental group and establish
green leaders to make sure the project is successful in the long term. In the
future, we hope to find even more ways to recycle and create a more sustainable
college.''

The
project will run through to the end of the scholastic year but MCAST aims to
monitor monthly recycling trends during the coming years.
