Te­tra Għall-Ist­rina: col­lect­ing car­tons of milk and juices

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Nowa­days the man­age­ment of waste is of na­tional im­por­tance. The Scheme Green MT, which col­lects sep­a­rated waste from nu­mer­ous lo­cal coun­cils in Malta and Gozo, will be launch­ing a cam­paign dur­ing the Euro­pean Week for Waste Re­duc­tion.

The cam­paign named ‘Te­tra ghall-Ist­rina’ will be en­cour­ag­ing any in­di­vid­u­als (in­clud­ing schools, lo­cal coun­cils, ho­tels, cater­ing es­tab­lish­ments etc.) in Malta and Gozo to join us in in­creas­ing the re­cy­cling and sep- ara­tion of pack­aged waste.

The main aim of the cam­paign is to col­lect as many car­tons of milk and juices (any brand), which un­for­tu­nately till last year were never con­sid­ered as re­cy­clable waste which could be dis­posed in the grey bag.

Green MT will be col­lect­ing from schools, lo­cal coun­cils, ho­tels and com­mer­cial en­ti­ties (list up­dated daily in our Face­book page, check for up­dates).

The EWWR – Euro­pean Week of Waste Re­duc­tion will be held dur­ing the week of 18th Novem­ber till 26th Novem­ber. This cam­paign will also be pro­moted through the use of broad­cast­ing meth­ods and so­cial me­dia.

Green MT will be pro­vid­ing €60 for every ton for this type of ma­te­rial col­lected in the men- tioned week, to the Malta Com­mu­nity Chest Fund dur­ing the an­nual event of Ist­rina. In this way we will be help­ing those in need while also mak­ing the en­vi­ron­ment around us bet­ter.

The ma­te­rial should be lightly rinsed, and put in any coloured bag (not a black bag) with the car­ton flat­tened. If an in­di­vid­ual has a query re­gard­ing this ini­tia­tive, they are free to use our Freep­hone: 80074444 or 21496965/6 or email us on info@greenmt.org
