An agreement reached with the Valletta Local Council for the recovery of recyclable waste can easily be described as a feather in the cap for GRTUs fully owned subsidiary Green Mt.
The agreement was signed earlier this week by Valletta Mayor Dr Alexei Dingli, Executive Secretary Simon Cauchi and Green Mts Chairman Vince Farrugia and CEO Joe Attard.
Describing this agreement as ‘a feather in the cap' Green MTs Chairman, Vince Farrugia added that Valletta was a Council that Green Mt definately wanted on board, as it poses both challenges, collection from the domestic and also from the commercial sectors entwined in one culture
Valletta is currently recovering just over a ton of separated waste and Green Mt is targeting a minmum recovery of eight tons weekly from the capital city. Further more a number of new initiaves are provided for in the agreement , including an extensive education campaign by Eco Councillors and direct visits to commercial establishments and residents.
On their side, Valletta Mayor Dr Alexei Dingli expressed satisfaction at reaching this agreement after lenghty discussions. He outlined that although an agreement has been signed it is well noted that this is not an agreement in a brick wall but one which will be continuously upgraded for the better of the whole locality.
Valletta Local Council together with Green Mt will shortly be communicating with residents and the commercial sector so that everyone is informed of collection dates and times accordingly.
